Advice for buying Litecoin first time (Non U.S.)

I am having trouble buying LTC. I tried Kraken, Coinbase etc but I always run into roadblocks I heard these exchanges are easy to use but I think that is not true when you live in other countries. I thought Moonpay is the easiest way of doing it. What are your thoughts on Moonpay?

Should I store my LTC in the exchange or transfer it in my Litewallet?

Sorry for such stupid questions. This is my first time I would appreciate any other advice, thanks.

no…download the core wallet…let the blockchain sync…
and keep backups of your wallet on usb drives offline…
this is the most secure way to store coins over the long term…
when you have coins on an exchange…they control your account…

when you have your own private key then you are in control…

I don’t disagree with that method being secure. For large amounts of crypto: I, and I think most others, would say to store your private keys in a cold wallet like a Ledger or something.

Got it. Would you guys recommend buying LTC on Moonpay?

I use Moonpay just about daily…
I recommend them.

Thanks for the advice :raised_hands:

@jake Major caveat with Moonpay is that one will likely pay more than the current market price. But, that is the trade-off one pays for convenience.

@wilderness I agree, fees are definitely hefty but the experience was easy so it was a compromise.

@Lolo123 Moonpay is a nice platform although I have to warn you the fees are high. It is what you get for the easy user experience.

Can you detail me the fees that are high like how much you pay compared to the market

There is no fix fee, it depends on every transaction percentage wise. Take a look at Moonpay Fee.
