How to Buy XYO on LATOKEN
As you might have heard, XYO is now available on LATOKEN.
Trading on LATOKEN is easy, but I wanted to take a few minutes to walk you through it.
Note: This is a very simple guide that just covers the basics of the exchange’s interface. We won’t get into any sort of complicated trades or trading strategy.
Step One: Sign Up For The Exchange
Signing up for the exchange is easy — you’ll just need to give them your email address and create a password. Make sure it’s a secure password, and not one you use anywhere else. You’ll then need to agree to the terms of service, and verify your email by clicking the link and, possibly, logging back in.
Step Two: Deposit ETH, BTC, or USDT
You can’t use fiat currency (like US dollars) to buy on LATOKEN. You’ll need to add cryptocurrency to your exchange wallet by sending it from another source. You can send ETH or BTC directly from another exchange like Coinbase, or from a wallet like Metamask or MEW. Keep in mind that some services, like Coinbase, don’t allow you to send cryptocurrency until a few days after it’s purchased.
From the login page, click “Wallet” or “Deposit” up top to access your online LATOKEN wallets.
You’ll see a huge list of currencies — select the one you want to send, and click “Deposit.” I’m sending ETH. If you aren’t seeing this list, make sure the “Hide zero assets” box is unchecked.
Here you’ll see the address to send your crypto to — I’ve blocked most of mine out in the screenshot. Copy and paste it, and send it using your original wallet (like Coinbase or Metamask). Check your wallet’s support page if you’re not sure how to send crypto out.
Then, click “Trading” up top.
Step Three: Making your purchase
On the trading screen, you’ll see all the different coins and tokens available to trade, and all the different pairings available. A “pairing” is a tradable combination — at launch, you’ll be able to trade XYO/BTC (Bitcoin), XYO/ETH (Ethereum), and XYO/USDT(Tether). Search for the pairing you want to trade. For this demo, I’m trading XYO/ETH.
This is the trading book — it shows you the historical trades of your trading pair and the open “Sell” and “Buy” orders. The most recent market rate will automatically appear in the “price” box.
To make a market order — in other words, to attempt to buy at that price — just enter the amount of XYO you want to purchase in the “Amount” field and hit the green “Buy” button.
Your purchase won’t go through immediately — there will need to be a seller willing to sell at that price. Until it does, it’ll appear in your “Order book.” Until a trade completes, you can cancel it by clicking the “X.”
You might need to refresh the screen to see if your order has completed. If it hasn’t, you might need to wait, or to try at a higher price. Once it’s completed, it will disappear from your order book and show up under “My trades.”
Step 4: Check your balance
Click the “Wallet” tab in the top bar. This will take you back to your wallet, showing all the coins and tokens you’re holding on the exchange, including your new XYO! Notice that I’ve now checked the “Hide zero assets” box to make it easier to navigate.
You can send your XYO to any ERC-20 compatible offline wallet, like MetaMask, Trust, or MEW. DO NOT SEND XYO TO ANOTHER EXCHANGE WALLET, SUCH AS COINBASE. You may not be able to access your XYO. We have heard from some users that there can be a delay when making a withdrawal from LATOKEN — please be advised that you may not be able to make an immediate withdrawal.
There you have it — the easy way to buy XYO from LATOKEN.
