1. Download a Cardano wallet

▫️A Crypto wallet gives you 100% ownership of your crypto & NFTs. You must have your own wallet to buy & sell NFTs. ▫️Make sure to securely save your seed phrase. ▫️There are many wallets, these are the ones most widely used.

▫️Vespr: Mobile wallet, great UI: https://vespr.xyz ▫️Gero : Desktop & mobile wallet: https://gerowallet.io/ ▫️Eternl: More robust, with advanced features: https://eternl.io/app/mainnet/faq

▫️Once you have Ada, set a 5₳ collateral in you wallet, found in your wallet settings. ▫️This may be necessary when using some DEXs and other Dapps on Cardano.

2. Fund your wallet

Two most common ways

  1. Buy directly through your Cardano wallet with your credit card.

  2. Through a Centralised exchange.

Exchange ▫️Once you have created an account, passed KYC, you can buy Ada and send to your Cardano wallet. ▫️We would advise you not to hold Crypto on a Centralised exchange, as who ever holds the keys (seed phrase) owns the Crypto. If something were to happen with an exchange, you may lose access to your Crypto.

Centralised Exchange ▫️Gemini: https://www.gemini.com/ ▫️Binance: https://www.binance.com/en ▫️Coinbase: https://www.coinbase.com/ ▫️Kraken: https://www.kraken.com/en-gb

Decentralized Exchange ▫️Changelly: https://changelly.com/ ▫️FixedFloat: https://fixedfloat.com/en/ ▫️ChangeNOW: https://changenow.io/

Swap from other chains ▫️Simpleswap This is a very easy way to move from one exchange to another, for example from Ada to Eth. We have found this to be among the cheapest to use.
