How to Buy Immutable (IMX)

Immutable is a Layer 2 (L2) blockchain that supports creating non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and building fast, secure, and scalable apps for play-to-earn games. It also aims to solve blockchain congestion issues, and provide a smoother experience for participants who mint and trade NFTs. 

IMX is the native cryptocurrency of the Immutable blockchain. In addition to serving as a store of value, this ERC-20 utility token functions as a reward for participants who help uphold network operations. This includes maintaining adequate liquidity provisions, and a balanced tokenomic structure. Additionally, decentralized applications (dApps) built on the Immutable network can integrate with IMX for a comprehensive user experience.
