How to Buy MultiversX (EGLD)

EGLD is the native cryptocurrency of the MultiversX (formerly Elrond) blockchain network, a platform built to support developing and deploying decentralized applications. It utilizes Adaptive State Sharding, which splits the MultiversX infrastructure into smaller groups, or shards. The project aims to provide fast, secure, and scalable transactions. 

EGLD serves as the primary means of value transfer within the MultiversX ecosystem, enabling participants to pay transaction fees and participate in governance. Additionally, EGLD holders may also engage in various activities within the digital economy, such as staking, yield farming, and liquidity provision. Here’s a quick guide on how to buy EGLD with a credit or debit card instantly. 

Where can I buy EGLD?

Eligible participants can acquire EGLD through Instant Buy, Convert functionality via CEX.IO Wallet, or using CEX.IO Spot Trading. Before purchasing EGLD, it’s recommended that users conduct thorough research, and consider factors like security, liquidity, customer support, and available payment methods to choose the platform that meets their unique needs.
