Buttercoin is a new Bitcoin exchange that focuses on ease of use, speed and security.  One of the more notable factors of Buttercoin is thattheyare backed by some big names in the tech world, such as Google Ventures, Y Combinator and the Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.  Currently there is a waiting list to get in, or if someone you know is already a member they can send you an affiliate link.  The affiliate link lets you earn money for every person that you invited who buys bitcoin.  My friend invited me, and we both got 20$ as a result (it is going down to 15$ soon), which was quite nice.  Buying bitcoin the Buttercoin is effortless, as almost every other exchange you have to get verified.  Onceyouare approved you buy bitcoin using your banks credentials (you can also wire money but its only available to business accounts).  It usually takes about 2-3 days for the money to be put into your account but note, the first time you add money is the longest as their payment processor has to manually check it.  This ended up taking 9 days for me, as something went wrong along the way, but that was no problem for me; Buttercoin gave me 10$ credit “for my patience”.  Once the funds arrived, you can either set your own price to buy/sell bitcoins at or use the market price.  The moment I hit buy, it went through and a short while later I had 30$ worth of bitcoin in my Trezor hardware wallet.  It was super easy to buy bitcoin, and the customer support was very helpful and did a great job (Thanks for giving me the 10$ credit, it was really nice that even though the transaction got stuck in pending you guys gave me credit).  Buttercoin is a really easy exchange to use, I definitely will be using them again in the future.

My referral link here, if you sign up by the 16th of February and buy bitcoins before the 23, you can get 20$ free.  After that it drops down to 15$.
