Strike Payment Method Tutorial: is a fantastic Cash App alternative that converts USD to Bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Lightning instantly on their backend which means you don't have to convert it yourself like you do in Cash App. I'll explain more below.  First you'll need to install their app.  They have apps for IOS, Android, and a Google Chrome browser extension.  Choose whichever one you prefer.

Go through the setup process.  You will need to provide an email address and a phone number.  They will send a confirmation code to both which you will then need to enter to register. Now there are two options to deposit funds into your Strike account.  You can add a debit card or you can attach your bank account.  From our testing it seems adding a debit card requires more KYC (know your customer) information for verification purposes, which adding your bank account does not.  You can add your bank account in seconds by using Plaid which is a safe and secure third party service that every major bank uses to attach your bank account to Fintech apps such as PayPal, Cash App, Strike, etc. Once your bank account is added you will then be able to deposit to your Strike account instantly with no fees.  

Now that you have funds in your Strike account you are now ready to make a purchase from  Go through the checkout process like you normally would.  Enter all your billing information and then click "Pay with BTC or BCH" button.  Be sure to choose Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is currently not supported by Strike. Once our website generates a Bitcoin QR code for you click the "open in wallet" link and choose Strike.  Then all you have to do is confirm your payment.  That's it!  

Your payment will be sent to the Blockchain and once there is 1 confirmation on the Blockchain we will then fill your order.  You will receive an email confirmation from us once your order has been completed.

**If for some reason you cannot open your Strike account by clicking the "open in wallet" link, you can still do the purchase manually.  Click the Pay button in your Strike account and leave the To: and For: sections blank.  Click the QR icon in the top right hand corner of the screen and then scan the QR code that you see on your computer screen that generated.

Cryptocurrency ATMs:

We highly suggest using as your primary method for sending Bitcoin but if for some reason you do not have a debit card or a bank account then Cryptocurrency ATMs are a decent option for buying Bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH) using cash (paper money).  First you will need to download a Crypto Wallet to your mobile phone.  A good wallet to use is since it supports both Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

You will then need to locate a local Cryptocurrency ATM by using the following website:  This website gives you the option to search for either Bitcoin (BTC) ATMs or Bitcoin Cash (BCH) ATMs.  Some ATMs support multiple cryptocurrencies.  If you can find an ATM that supports Bitcoin Cash (BCH) close to you that is the best option since the fees for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) are drastically lower than Bitcoin (BTC).  Once you find a cryptocurrency ATM it will walk you through how to buy cryptocurrency via the screen on the ATM. You'll follow the steps, deposit your cash money, and then the ATM will send the cryptocurrency to the wallet app on your mobile phone.  If you are using the wallet all you'll have to do is open the app and click the "receive" button.  Scroll left or right to the type of cryptocurrency you want to receive, whether it's Bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH).  You will then use the ATM's scanner to scan the QR code that your phone generated.  The cryptocurrency ATM will then send your phone the cryptocurrency you just purchased.  That's all there is to it.  Once the cryptocurrency is deposited to the wallet on your phone you are then ready to make a purchase from
