I’m trying to make my first bitcoin purchase and everything I read/watch about bitcoins recommends using Coinbase at some point during the acquisition or set up process. So far, I’ve had terrible experiences with Coinbase. I tried signing up in May and around that time they apparently had issues with their authentication, ticketing systems, purchasing systems and various other features. My ticket has been sitting unanswered with them for almost 2 months now and I’ve been unable to verify a method of purchase with them.

TL;DR I’m looking for a good alternative for Coinbase for both setting up a wallet and getting an address and for funding that wallet. Do you have any recommendations?

Thanks!

Yes they suck, but other places suck just as bad or worse.  You could
try getting verified on kraken, as I heard they're OK.  There aren't many
places around that can do quick fiat--> btc transactions anymore.
Circle used to be the best alternative,  but they sold out and stopped
doing it.

You might consider doing deals on this forum,  but it'll probably cost
you a premium.

Try finding local bitcoin users who would be glad to buy and sell bitcoins directly to your currency. In that way you'll save some fees. You're likely to meet some in your neighborhood as the bitcoin community is huge.

Did you try GDAX? They have 0 $ limit trading fees, which is a huge advantage over CoinBase which charges an arm and a leg for every transcation as well as offers a different price for buy/sell differing by 0.30$ on each side of the actual price.

 Funding the wallet, the best in the West,  bitonic.nl  there margin might be a little steep, otherwise never no problems, cash in or cash
 out, only a phone call away if you need them, how business should be.
 From here you must send it to your btc wallet immediately.

 Setting up a wallet and getting an address are both the same and depends on what you want if for, gambling, investing, purchase
 online?

Are you looking for a wallet to use? For bitcoin? Well many suggest using wallets that you can have the private keys.. Coinbase is an exchange and not a wallet. You can use Electrum as a bitcoin wallet. You can fund by sending coins to its addresses..

I changed from coinbase to coinomi, because I can choose my own fees, its a multiwallet and I have my private keys. The only problem is, that adresses seem unabled to be siģned.

This is the first I have heard of coinomi - it looks pretty nice but the coin support is extremely strange. They support some really old coins that have long lost support and none of the recent hot ones which really throws me. I am trying to make bigger investments these days but I am too afraid to keep my coins I plan on long terming in an exchange for obvious reasons. Between this wallet and Jaxx I still do not have the wallets needed for the majority of my holdings.

Want increased coin support within AwesomeMiner? Try my free plugin to add support for nearly any coin!

I think up until now there aint no wallet that could support large amount of good alt coins, I dont know about cold storages like trezors. I think they're about to do so but only those who are hot.

Bittrex is decent with a good support of many good altcoins. You can only buy using ETH/ BTC there though, no fiat currency. Also you can't move money out until filling out personal info, which is a bummer.
