Introduction

Due to the de-pegging of UST, LUNA is experiencing extreme volatility. Please proceed with caution. 

Some cryptocurrencies are harder to obtain than others. Terra 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 Terra that works for you.

Step-by-step

  1. 1

    Download Coinbase Wallet

    A self-custody wallet like Coinbase Wallet is required to purchase Terra. Coinbase Wallet is available as a mobile app and browser extension. Download Coinbase Wallet.

  1. 2

    Choose a Coinbase Wallet username

    As part of setting up your Coinbase Wallet, you will need to choose a username. This username lets other Coinbase Wallet users easily send you crypto. You can keep your username private, but you will need one to access the account.

  1. 3

    Securely store your recovery phrase

    When you create a new self-custody wallet, you'll be given a recovery phrase that consists of 12 random words. The recovery phrase is the key to your crypto, meaning anyone with your recovery phrase has access to your crypto. Do not share your recovery phrase with anyone.

    We strongly recommend writing these down on paper and storing them securely, as well as using Coinbase Wallet's cloud backup feature.

    Remember, do not share your recovery phrase with anyone. Coinbase will never ask you for your recovery phrase. And if you lose your recovery phrase, Coinbase cannot help you access your wallet.
