I've been looking online for quite sometime but it doesn't seem like I can find this exact answer. I've been looking to buy some cryptocurrencies but I'm hoping to be able to buy them with USD.
I know that I can go to coinbase, open an account, buy bitcoin, or ether and then transfer it to an exchange such as bittrex or bitstamp and get coins using those two main cryptocurrencies.
What if I want Ripple or DASH and want to buy it directly at the price that it's at, and i do not want to buy Bitcoin or Ether to get it (since the prices are so high).
Basically I'm not interested in buying Ether or Bitcoin, i'm looking to buy some other cryptocurrencies that are very low in price.
Am I able to do that - or do I HAVE to use Bitcoin or Ether to buy the desired ctyptocurrencies.
