Tap on the button labeled “Market” near the price chart. In this view, you will see a complete list of places you can purchase Namecoin as well as the currencies you can use to obtain it.

    Pick a platform to make your purchase

    Make the purchase on your chosen platform

    Every platform has a different way of doing things. Some platforms are very easy to use, others not so much.

    Generally speaking, purchasing crypto with a fiat currency like the U.S. Dollar will be easier than purchasing it with another crypto.

    If you do have to purchase Namecoin with another crypto, you’ll need to first create a crypto wallet that supports Namecoin, then you’ll buy the first currency and use it to buy Namecoin on the platform you chose.

    If you get stuck, most platforms provide guides. But if they don’t, there is a vibrant community of crypto enthusiasts that have likely posted guides on Youtube, Twitter, and elsewhere.
