I used a method that has worked for me so far. There’s other ways to do this, but all the exchanges have been so backed up on their servers that even logging on is an issue. This way I don’t have a large amount of money just floating on the internet in some hot wallet. So I basically did coinbase purchase of litecoin, litecoin to shapeshift.io to exchange to reddcoin, reddcoin to reddcoin wallet.
To lay out how I did this more methodically:
1.Coinbase.com to purchase initial cryptos (I use litecoin)
The reason I use coinbase is because of the security of the wallet and the companies name and media presents.
2.Go to shapeshift.io to exchange your initial crypto for which one you would like to receive. (process is explained on shapeshift websites)
I’ve used ShapeShift dozens of times and have never had any issues what so ever. Very timely and prices are usually spot on to most major exchanges.
3.Reddcoin to wallet
Once you complete shapeshift transaction, you can have them email you a confirmation receipt and than of course reddcoin allows you to view the blockchain for the transaction.
