To purchase Moonbeam tokens you will need to start on a centralized exchange (CEX) where the ticker is $GLMR. This can be purchased using stable coin pairs such as GLMR/USDT on the various exchanges.
The main exchanges to purchase GLMR on are:
Step by step: Kucoin
Step 1: Make sure you have USDT on Kucoin
This can be done by either depositing FIAT currency onto the exchange and trading it for USDT, or trading one of your other coins for USDT
Step 2: Navigate to the ‘Trade’ tab on Kucoin
Step 3: Click 'Spot Trading'
Step 4: On the trading screen, search for 'GLMR/USDT'
Step 5: Purchase GLMR using USDT by using a market order
Step 6: Send GLMR to your MetaMask wallet
Copy your wallet address on MetaMask and then withdraw it to that wallet address.
Step 7: Stake your GLMR
It is important to move your GLMR to MetaMask once you have purchased it so that you can start staking it to compound your investment returns.
