Can I deposit fiat currency like USD/EUR into Exodus to buy bitcoin?
Currently, Exodus does not support deposits from fiat currency like the dollar (USD) or euro (EUR). This means that you are not able to purchase bitcoin, dash, ether, or any other cryptocurrency that Exodus supports using fiat deposits. Today, Exodus only supports cryptocurrency and blockchain assets.
The easiest way to get started managing a portfolio of blockchain assets is to buy bitcoin with your national currency (like US dollars) and transfer bitcoin into your Exodus wallet. Bitcoin is the base unit of blockchain assets, just like stocks are priced and purchased with national currency (US dollars), most blockchain assets are priced and purchased with bitcoin.
For users in Europe and North America, Exodus recommends purchasing bitcoin with Coinbase. Coinbase can be used in over 32 countries. You can find the list of countries Coinbase supports at www.coinbase.com/global.
