You can check the price of BTC using

or you can go to to see the prices of Bitcoin plus all the other cryptocurrencies.

Good luck!
Sadly, I went to the one at 1silverag & did a top-up for bitcoin. First time trying even at this late stage. I created a bitcoin wallet on n had successful top of to my Blockchain wallet.
After learning all the fundamentals, I did a test trade buying some lite coin on Poloniex exchange. Alamak, not only my trade didn't go thru but my btc balance in my wallet suddenly Zero!!! I tried recover of funds many times over next 3 days, yet my Blockchain wallet still shows '0 btc', no trade effected n no transactions whatsoever!! search thru the Blockchain website but cannot email or feedback access to them to highlight my missing funds. Bloody hell, for nothing lost about usd250! 😝 an expensive lesson trying to buy stupid cryptos!! Curse and swear LA!!

Beginners ass luck, as usual. I wonder got any expert in gca can teach me how to recover funds but using the '12 phrase' recovery supposed to be correct n secure but for the life of me, I cannot retrieve my lost btc as kept showing me zero balance!!! Sad man
