Buy WAXP on Binance.com
Binance is one of the biggest exchanges worldwide. You can buy more then 600+ cryptocurrencies on Binance. WAXP is one of them. To be eglible for purchases on Binance you need to register for an account and verify your identity (Personal Information, Proof of address, etc..)
If you are already registered on Binance, you can buy WAXP by using one of the following options:
- Bank Deposit (You need to deposit money using SEPA transfer) – Recommended for beginners
- Credit-Card (Buy crypto using your creditcard) – Recommended for beginners
- Cash Balance (If you have cash balance on your account already, you can use this to buy)
- P2P Trading – Not recommended for beginners
- Third-Party Payment (Using an external payment provider like Simplex and Banxa)
After purchasing the desired amount of WAX cryptocurrency, you need to withdraw them from your Binance account into your personal WAX Wallet.
You do this by selecting “Withdraw Crypto” on Binance and it will look like this:
The address field is where you will have to type in your WAX Wallet-ID. It’s recommended to double check the correct spelling.
When withdrawing from Binance to your Wax Wallet, there is currently no need for the Memo-field, you can use this just as a personal note. But you should always double check if a transaction requires a memo.
The minimum withdrawal amount is 7 WAXP and you have to pay a fee of 2 WAXP for the transaction. Within about 5 minutes the WAX currency should arrive within your wallet. Currently 1 WAXP = 0.1 USD
Buy WAXP on Crypto.com
If you prefer using the Crypto.com app you will have these options available:
- Buy WAXP with your Credit-card.
- Buy WAXP with crypto from your Crypto-Wallet
- Buy WAXP using your Fia Wallet.
If you successfully purchased WAX you should navigate into the crypto.com Crypt Wallet and select WAX/WAXP from your available assets.
You will find the option to “Transfer”. Select “Withdraw” and then “External Wallet”. Before withdrawing you have to add your Wax Wallet address to your address book and give it a personal name.
