Do you have any ETH, QTUM or BTC in a crypto wallet?
If the answer is YES, please go to Instruction 2 on pg. 3.
If the answer is NO, a quick guide on how to buy BTC is detailed below in Instruction 1.
INSTRUCTION 1: INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL CURRENCIES FOR NEW USERS
Converting real currencies to a digital currency
If you’re new to digital currencies, your first step will be to find an exchange that allows you to deposit traditional money to buy a digital currency. Due to regulations that exchanges have imposed upon themselves, exchanges will typically require you to verify your account before depositing your funds, through the submission of identity proof and other personal information, such as a proof of address.
While you are free to use any crypto exchange to buy your initial digital currency, for the purpose of this guide, we have suggested using Localbitcoins.net to acquire Bitcoin, also known as BTC, that you will then use to participate in the FENIX ITO.
Bitcoin is the most widely adopted digital currency and is offered on almost all exchanges – as such, it represents a gateway to purchasing other coins. In other words, if you want to buy any other coins, such as FENIX Tokens, you may do so by following the instructions set out below:
Set up a wallet to hold your BTC
- Go to localbitcoins.net, and click ‘sign up free’ or if you have an account already, skip this step and move to “Purchasing BTC”.
- If you want to switch interface language – you can find language switch at the bottom of the page under ‘Services’.
- Fill in the required fields to register a new account and click the ‘Register’ button
- Check your email after completing the registration and confirm your email address by clicking the link set out therein.
- Once you have clicked the link to verify your address, you will be redirected to a page confirming that your account is now active.
- Congratulations – you now have an active account and a valid crypto wallet!
With your verified account, you can now buy the BTC with which you will subscribe for FENIX Tokens.
- Go to the main page of localbitcoins.net and in the search box fill in the form with the amount you want to buy in your currency, your location and choose a payment method.
- If you’re unsure how you want to pay, choose “All online offers” as your payment method.
- The site will list BTC traders available in your region.
- From the list of advertisements, choose one from a trader with a good reputation score and a high amount of trades.
- You can click the ‘Buy’ button to view more information about an advertisement.
- After you press the ‘Buy’ button you’ll see more information about the advertisement, including the terms of the trade.
- Read through them before submitting the trade request – if you don’t agree with them, you can go back to the previous page and choose another advertisement.
- To start the trade, type in the blue box how much you want to buy, enter a message for the seller and click the Send trade request button to the start the trade.
- Be sure you’re ready to pay when clicking the button, if you don’t pay before the payment window is over, the trade will be automatically cancelled.
- Once you have made the payment, click the I have paid button.
- Once the trader has verified that your payment has been received your BTC will be released from escrow and they are instantly available in your LocalBitcoins wallet.
- Congratulations – you now are a proud owner of BTC.
