I hear you about the fees, but they are a necessary cost of doing business with a reputable American business and not a risky offshore exchange. Coinbase was the first US exchange that allowed US citizens to purchase bitcoin, and they are excellent about timely withdraws.

Marchas45,

Try getting an account at Gemini Trust run by the Winklevoss twins. I believe it’s the only registered BTC and Ethereum exchange in the US. They do require KYC registration but ask for their Active Trader screen and you’ll find that the fees are wayyyy lower than Coinbase

I agree, I am very pleased with Gemini. I don't trade, but my few transactions were smooth and simple.
