Tips from my Telegram chat group:
If you just want to buy BTC with USD, I’d still say GDAX (which is part of Coinbase) is the best. Coinbase is a $1.6 billion company, and trading using limit orders is absolutely free on GDAX. USD deposits are protected under some US scheme, but I’m not sure if that applies to Canadians too. Bitfinex has the highest BTCUSD volume (I think), but I’ve heard of some dodgy stories coming out of Bitfinex. Whatever exchange you use, do not keep cryptocurrency on there for any extended period of time; transfer to a desktop/paper wallet, or even better, a hardware wallet such as Ledger Nano S or Trezor. If you’re using a decentralised exchange (such as EtherDelta) then of course you’re deposits are safe since it is all handled with Ethereum smart contracts.
Bittrex don’t have BTCUSD, only BTCUSDT (which is Tether, a cryptocurrency supposedly pegged to USD). I’ve never used Gemini, but I’d still prefer Coinbase I think, purely because it’s backed by some rather important people.
Most of the APIs are RESTful/HTTP, and as such, are language-agnostic.

Bitcoin on Gemini or Coinbase, then transfer the Bitcoin to an exhange like
Bittrex. Poloniex was the best, but they have no customer service and have
had many people leave for Bittrex. Bittrex and Poloniex trade dozens of

Gemini.com is much faster to get funds in and out between BITCOIN and cash. Coinbase has security issues and holds your BITCOIN for a week after you purchase it. They do give you the current exchange rate at time of purchase. They also have a high commission.
