The bitcoin exchanges I use are as follows…
These are specifically for buying bitcoins which then need to be transferred to other exchanges to buy altcoins. Altcoin exchanges don’t sell bitcoin for USD so it’s a pain in the butt extra step.
People typically get started here Coinbase.com they don’t have a wait time to get verified but there are better exchanges out there.
I personally use https://gemini.com/ and https://bitflyer.com/en-us
One of the best sites for alt coins https://www.binance.com/ the reason it is one of the best is because it has one of the largest varieties of coins and it has the highest trade volume of coins. Trade volume is important for liquidity. You don’t want to be stuck holding a coin that you can’t sell.
another popular alt coin exchange is https://bittrex.com
I personally don’t like this site cause it is ugly and they took 2 months to create my account.
