Are there alternatives to centralized exchanges?
If a centralized exchange is not something you're interested in using, there are other services that can connect buyers to sellers in a peer-to-peer (P2P) system:
Bitcoin ATMs are another option for purchasing some Bitcoin. With over 36,000 ATMs around the world, you can expect each ATM to work slightly differently, but you can usually visit an ATM in-person to purchase Bitcoin with your debit card, credit card, or cash.
Although Bitcoin is the most widely used cryptocurrency, many Bitcoin ATMs will allow you to purchase other cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC).
Bitcoin ATMs generally send any purchased crypto to the crypto wallet's receiving address you provide.
Depending on the Bitcoin ATM provider, these machines generally allow you to scan your wallet's receiving address via QR code to ensure the funds are sent to the correct receiving address.
On the other hand, some machines dispense what's called a printed paper wallet. In this case, you'd use your wallet to "sweep" the funds from the paper wallet.

What are stablecoins?
A stablecoin is a crypto token typically pegged to a fiat currency, commodity, or its supply is managed by an algorithm. They are called stablecoins because unlike other crypto, their value is stable, and doesn't fluctuate based on market conditions.
We currently support several stablecoins: TUSD, DAI, USDC, GUSD, PAX, PAXG, BUSD, USDT, DAI, UST, and USDP.
You can buy and sell stablecoins with fiat using your Coinbase or Gemini account. Alternatively, if you have other digital assets you can use the Exodus built-in exchange to trade other digital assets for these stablecoins.
This is the closest option Exodus offers for holding fiat currency. You can read more about stablecoins in this article.
Which platform should I choose?
Each platform in this article will work slightly differently so we encourage you to explore them all and see what works best for you.
Remember to always check the local laws and regulations when buying and selling cryptocurrencies.
