For Australian Users

Sign up for an account on one of both of these crypto currency exchanges: ***See section on full exchanges as it is recommended that you register for those at the same time***

You will need to verify your account after you've registered.
Follow the instructions and provide your ID and address details, you may even need to take a selfie with verification information.
It may take a couple of days for your account to become verified.
You can start depositing money to trade, but you will not be able to withdraw your money before you are verified.

Deposit Money
Look for the "Deposit" link to enter the deposit page.
Choose to deposit money using BPay which is fee free.
It will take about 1-2 business days excluding weekends for your money to appear on the exchange.

Full exchanges
Domestic exchanges only allow you to trade on the big-3 or 4 coins, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Ethereum Classic.
Also, domestic exchanges are less competitive compared to the international full exchanges due to small community size.
As such you may find that the prices are quite unfavourable for buying.

Therefore, sign up to any of the following full exchanges in order to gain access to a larger range of Alternate Coins:
(This list is not exhaustive but they are some of the more popular ones)
Now what
Once you have registered and verified yourself, you can start trading.
Transfer funds via BPAY into the domestic exchanges
Full international exchanges either do not accept fiat deposits or charges a hefty fee for fiat deposits.

Therefore, it is recommended to deposit fiat into domestic exchanges for free, they convert your fiat into crypto currencies.
It is also recommended to convert your fiat into a crypto currency that is "light weight"(has low withdrawal fees) like Etherum or Ethereum Classic. Pretty much anything apart from Bitcoin.
The reason for this is because you will be transferring the crypto currency out into one of the other full exchanges you registered.
(Be sure to check the market average price of the crypto currency which you are converting your fiat into as prices can be inflated on domestic exchanges).

Good luck, learn hard and be successful~!

For Singapore traders

There are 2 types of bitcoin exchanges.
1) Fiat to crypto (they only have a few main coins like btc, ltc, eth):Coinhako, Coinbase (not recommended as it has several history of crashes) and Quoinex
2) Crypto to alternate coins ("full exchanges" as we'll like to term it): Binance, Hitbtc, Bittrex, Bitfinex, Qryptos

Typically the setting up of account and verifying your personal information will take around 3-7 days to complete.

Second step after you have created your Fiat account is to deposit your Singapore dollar (SGD) into these exchanges in 1) above. There are a few providers and we recommend for several reasons. One (and also primarily), it is 0% fees for depositing SGD (as of this date of writing 29-Nov-2017). Another is, Xfers is a singapore based company. In the event it got hacked or something, we got someone / somewhere to turn to? You can then use the money transferred in Xfers to buy bitcoins in Coinbase. Your handphone registered with these 2 portals are linked and will show up in your Coinbase account.

Is the above too complicated? Then you might want to just register an account with Quoinex and they have a step by step guide to change your fiat into bitcoins.

With that said for Quoinex, this is the latest update [20-Dec-2017]. Quoinex deposit and withdrawal system takes around 10 working days for it to confirm. It is personally too long a time for me. So I would recommend friends to sign up GDAX. It is using the same backend (database) with Coinbase, but without the exorbitant fees! Watch this video on the step by step on how to deposit for almost 0% fee!

Once you've dipped your feet into the bitcoin trading realm and ready to explore the myriad world of alternate coins, then transfer your bitcoins into those various exchanges. It's really volatile and exciting, so good luck to your trading with Bitoins in Singapore!! 8-)
