I'm new to Bitcoin, so I'm grateful for anyone's patience with my perhaps uninformed questions.
I live in NYC and I'd like to buy some Bitcoin. I understand that due to a recent law, exchanges aren't operating here, but there are several ATMs. Is there a downside, other than the service fee, to the ATMs? I'm prepared to lose some money on that, especially since it doesn't seem to be possible to purchase them another way here. Ultimately, this is a gift for my husband, and we see it for the high risk investment that it is.
Assuming I do purchase some at an ATM, what happens next? I know I come across like a total idiot, but I really haven't figured that part out yet. How do I keep track of them? Where do I store them? How could I give them to someone else?
