Step 1

Getting Paired Coins

Convert your government fiat money to (BTC) or (ETH)

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.
