How to Buy with a Credit or Debit Card: A Complete Guide

ZetaChain is a Layer 1 blockchain specifically designed to empower developers. It provides a platform for building decentralized applications (dApps) directly on its network. The key innovation of ZetaChain lies in its ability to act as a bridge between blockchains. 

This means potentially allowing for information and assets to seamlessly flow between otherwise incompatible blockchain ecosystems, potentially unlocking a new level of interconnectedness within the crypto world.

This functionality allows users to access various cryptocurrencies and applications on a single platform. For instance, participants could potentially use a DeFi app built on ZetaChain to trade Bitcoin.

ZETA, the native token of the ZetaChain blockchain, can be obtained through CEX.IO, a recognized cryptocurrency exchange that allows eligible enthusiasts to buy and sell crypto in the U.S., as well as 200+ supported jurisdictions. 

In this article, we explore ZETA and how to purchase this token with a credit or debit card on CEX.IO.  

About ZETA

ZetaChain uses ZETA to pay transaction fees, including those using ZetaChain's Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and cross-chain transactions. This potentially helps prevent spam and DDoS attacks on the network.

ZETA contributes to ZetaChain's security through a staking mechanism. Network validators can delegate their ZETA holdings to participate in transaction validation and earn rewards distributed in ZETA tokens. This approach aligns with the CEX.IO program to stake crypto, where eligible users can lock up their holdings in supported cryptocurrencies to potentially earn rewards.

ZetaChain's native token also empowers governance by giving ZETA holders voting rights, and participation in liquidity pools to earn rewards from trading fees. This incentivizes users to hold ZETA and contribute to a more liquid marketplace for the token.

How to buy ZETA on CEX.IO

CEX.IO offers a comprehensive selection of over 200 cryptocurrencies, including ZETA, and provides crypto enthusiasts with diverse acquisition methods.

The most intuitive way to obtain ZETA tokens is through Instant Buy, which allows eligible customers to link their credit and debit cards with a free crypto wallet provided by CEX.IO. 

Those looking to trade ZETA against other crypto and digital currencies (USDT and USD) directly on their cryptocurrency trading account can explore Spot Trading, which offers more flexibility for experienced traders who might prefer using different crypto assets to complete purchases.
