If you're in a supported region, you can buy crypto-assets in your local currency from within the app. Simply tap on the BUY button for the asset you want to buy (BTC, BCH, or ETH) and follow the instructions.

Buying cryptocurrency

  1. From the app's home screen, tap the "BUY" button for the asset you want to buy (eg. BCH, BTC, ETH).

  2. Choose your preferred wallet for depositing. For example, if you're buying Bitcoin (BTC), you may want to deposit the purchase into your "My BTC Savings" wallet.

  3. Select the amount you'd like to purchase (you can enter the amount either in local currency or cryptocurrency terms).

  4. If it's your first purchase, verify your identity. After your first purchase, which includes an identification verification procedure, future purchases are completed in seconds!

  5. Select your payment method and confirm the transaction. You'll be notified when the cryptocurrency is deposited in your wallet.

Cryptocurrency is released once verification checks have been completed. For first time transactions, this can take between a few minutes and a few hours, depending on the additional verification that may be required.

Most subsequent transactions will be processed within about 20 minutes, but occasionally, during periods of congestion, it may take longer.
