How to Buy Blur

Blur is a decentralized non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace created to offer convenient NFT exchange between network users, without them incurring transaction fees. It caters to developers and professional traders, providing flexible creator royalties, airdrops for engaged participants, and advanced portfolio management tools. 

BLUR is the native cryptocurrency of the Blur Network. It is used for rewarding users through Airdrops, and enables token holders to participate in decision-making processes through a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). 

In this article, we explore how to buy BLUR with a credit or debit card instantly. 

What is BLUR cryptocurrency? 

BLUR is an ERC-20 token built on Ethereum. It allows token holders to propose and vote on governance measures that guide the direction of the platform, which is overseen by the Blur Foundation. 

Initially, these tokens were distributed as rewards through airdrops, allowing users to earn Care Packages containing BLUR tokens, by participating in specific activities on the Blur platform. 

BLUR also plays a role in securing its native network through the proof of stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. 

Similar to CEX.IO, which allows eligible users to stake cryptocurrency and earn rewards for participating in securing supported networks, Blur enables participants who stake at least 32 ETH to become validators on the Blur network, and potentially earn rewards in BLUR for validating transactions.

Disclaimer: Please note that BLUR is currently unavailable for staking at CEX.IO. We advise curious participants to explore our list of available coins and conduct thorough research before engaging with our staking service.
