After installing the wallet of your choice, Two most import steps to be followed are –
1. Set Password for your wallet
2. Take backup for your wallet (Keep the backup of your someplace secure like USB drive & dropbox etc)
Sync your Wallet
I know next step should be buying ByteCoins but for all cryptocurrencies it is very important to sync your wallet before you see any transactions because you may get panicked if you buy BCN & that doesn’t reflect in your wallet for hours or may be days.
Option 1 (Complete Sync)
You can choose to download the complete blockchain which is slower, need plenty of hard drive space on your computer and would take 2 – 3 days depending on your internet connection.
Option 2 (Light Wallet)
You can also run your official wallet as light wallet and get synced up in 5 – 10 mins again depending on your internet speed. To use your wallet as light wallet, just go to settings/preference and choose “Remote Daemon” (as shown in image below)

Once you are all synced up, its time to move further.
Buy ByteCoin (BCN)
You can easily buy BCN for US Dollars using your Credit/Debit card regardless of your home country. Though there are certain limitation when you buy using credit card like first transaction can be of US$ 50 only and then subsequent transaction could be of higher value. Below are the sites that offer BCN to USD buying –

Remember the first line of the article, Long term investment. If you are planning to do intra day trading there are plenty of other pump coins but BCN is a futuristic coin meant for long term investment. So, hold your coins for a year and it could be your retirement plan as well.
