Hi @Adalynn here is a really good post from one of the community member on how to buy Cardano.


Thank you antonietrigger

Unless you live in a few countries (like Korea), there’s no great ways to buy ADA. Coinmarketcap shows a list of all ADA markets available, most of which are ADA/ETH or ADA/BTC markets. This means you’ll first need to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum and then trade that for ADA.

GDAX, Bitstamp, and Kraken are a few of the lowest fee exchanges where you can buy Bitcoin or Ethereum with fiat currency.

Binance and Bittrex are two of the world’s most popular exchanges, neither of which accepts fiat currency. You can however use these exchanges to trade your Bitcoin or Ethereum for ADA. Personally I prefer Binance, as they have way less strict KYC and good initial withdrawal limits with no verification required.

Here’s a pretty good guide that shows the process for buying ADA on Binance step by step with pictures.
