If you’ve decided to get started with BitBay, you are at the right place! You have most likely read up about the project and understand the basics of what BitBay is. If not, we encourage you to read the About section to get a grasp on things.

The following is a simple list of things you can do to get involved in the world of Bay.

1. Download the software

2. Get some $BAY

The BitBay market is supported by our digital currency, $Bay. Now that you’ve downloaded our software, you should get at least a little Bay so you can play around with the new features of the client.
