We’ve created this guide to tackle this specific problem - this page brings you from zero to hero in buying and using Verge (XVG).
Because you can’t purchase Verge (XVG) directly from your bank account balance or credit card today, you must purchase Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH) from a secured online platform that accepts these payment methods first. We recommend Coinbase for your Country.Create a Coinbase account
