How to buy Serum

Some cryptocurrencies are harder to obtain than others. Serum is one of them. It’s not available on the Coinbase app or Coinbase Wallet. But don’t worry, we’ve provided some hints to help you find a way to buy Serum that works for you.


1. Check CoinMarketCap to see where you can buy Serum and with which currencies

For each cryptocurrency, CoinMarketCap provides a list of purchasing options (also known as market pairs). Go to CoinMarketCap and search for Serum. Tap on the button labeled “Market” near the price chart. In this view, you will see a complete list of places you can purchase Serum as well as the currencies you can use to obtain it. Under “Pairs” you'll see the shorthand for Serum, SRM, plus a second currency. The second currency is what you can use to purchase Serum. If you'd like to purchase SRM with the U.S. Dollar, look for SRM/USD.


2. Pick a platform to make your purchase

Different platforms have different levels of security, reliability, and liquidity. Before creating an account, do your research.


3. 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 Serum with another crypto, you’ll need to first create a crypto wallet that supports Serum, then you’ll buy the first currency and use it to buy Serum 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.
