How to Buy FLOW at CEX.IO

Flow is a permission-less Layer 1 blockchain intending to become an efficient and effective ecosystem for creating decentralized applications (dApps), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and blockchain-based games. It aims to provide a scalable environment for fast transactions without congestion, indulging both developers and crypto enthusiasts alike. 

FLOW is a cryptocurrency that runs on the Flow blockchain and serves multiple purposes. It is used as a medium of exchange to cover transaction fees, and is crucial in securing the network through staking and delegation processes. Also, FLOW is the main currency to buy and sell digital collectibles and in-game items on the Flow blockchain. 

In this article, we discover the most intuitive way to acquire FLOW with a credit and debit card. 

Where to buy FLOW securely? 

FLOW is available on various crypto exchanges, including CEX.IO, which offers a comprehensive ecosystem of crypto-related products and services, including a dedicated crypto digital app for on-the-go aficionados. 

By registering with CEX.IO, eligible users can acquire a free crypto wallet, which may be used  to buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies on our Spot Trading platform.

In addition, we offer our qualified customers numerous gateways to earn crypto beyond trading, which could benefit less crypto-savvy enthusiasts: 

  • Staking crypto is the way users can potentially increase their holdings over time. It requires locking up crypto holdings for a specific period of time.
  • Crypto savings allows customers to withdraw their holdings or trade them anytime. It offers potentially lower reward rates than staking but is also generally considered less risky. 

Disclaimer: Customers are advised to conduct thorough research and consider their risk tolerance before engaging in staking or crypto savings. Continually assess the potential rewards and risks associated with these crypto services before participating.
