How to Buy Sui (SUI)

Sui is a layer-1 blockchain created to reduce delays or lag times in processing transactions. It emphasizes "transaction finality," and aims to ensure that once transactions are confirmed and added to the blockchain, they cannot be reversed or altered. 

Its architecture was designed to quickly handle a large volume of transactions, making Sui potentially suitable for applications requiring high throughput. As such, this network could be of use in gaming and financial sectors that require the support and security of real-time applications. 

SUI is the native cryptocurrency of the Sui blockchain. It serves as a store of value, to facilitate transactions, and incentivizes network participants, such as validators and developers, through fees and rewards.

In this article, we’ll explore where and how curious participants can buy SUI.
