How to buy Dash in the exchanger

The main ways to buy Dash are:

  • Purchase from the online currency exchanger. The process consists in the fact that you transfer to his account the currency that you have. In return, the exchanger sends the required amount of cryptocurrency to the specified address. In addition to the Dash cryptocurrency, other most popular crypto-coins can be purchased at exchange offices: bitcoin, zcash, litecoin, ethereum, etc.

The most important point is the correct choice of service, its reliability. I recommend those I work with: Prostocash, Xchange, 60cek. They are reliable online exchangers with a good reputation, reviews, large reserves and exchange boards.

I’ll show you how to buy cryptocurrency Dash using one of them as an example: Prostocash.

The exchanger works with banks (Sberbank, Alfa-Bank, VTB-24 and others), with Visa and Mastercard RUB cards of any bank, with electronic money: Yandex, qiwi, advcash, perfectmoney, etc.

To buy Dash, you just need to select the exchange direction and enter the amount. Look at the reserves, if there is enough (the screenshot shows that the reserve is 12 DSH). For example, buy Dash for Russian rubles of Sberbank:

0.05% discount – only after registration on the service. Next, enter the information on the exchange: card number; FULL NAME. cardholder and Dash address (starts with X) where to find it, see a bit above.

There is online support on the Prostocash website, so if you have any difficulties, please contact.

Buy Dash cryptocurrency on the exchange

The second way to buy Dash is through a cryptocurrency exchange. Various cryptocurrencies are traded on their platform.

The buying process is as follows:

  • Creating an account on the exchange
  • Account balance replenishment
  • Acquisition of cryptocurrency
  • Withdrawal and transfer to another local wallet for storage

Let me show you on the example of Exmo – the first in the ranking of cryptocurrency exchanges in Eastern Europe in terms of popularity and one of the top 30 largest in terms of trading volume. It is also a recommended exchange from Dash cryptocurrency developers.

Official website:

In addition to the Dash cryptocurrency, other valuable coins can be purchased, exchanged:

After a simple registration on Exmo, you need to replenish any of the fiat accounts: USD, EUR, RUB, UAH or cryptocurrency. This can be done from the “Wallet” tab by selecting the desired account and clicking “Replenish”. Choose any of the ways.

From time to time, payment systems Yandex Money and Qiwi appear for accounts in RUB rubles, but the limits of the payment gateway quickly end and remain: advcash, perfectmoney, moneypolo, payeer, okpay. The screenshot shows that replenishment is still available through Qiwi.

A good alternative is to buy the exchange’s internal currency – Exmo-code in the exchanger, and then upload it on the website in the “Wallet” section – Ex-code. For example, in the Prostocash exchanger, a purchase from a Visa or Mastercard:

After replenishing the balance, to buy Dash, you can go to the “Exchange” tab. Select an account and cryptocurrency, specify the amount and make an instant exchange at the market price:

You can do it differently and create a buy order at the market. To do this, go to the “Trades” tab, select the Dash / USD cryptocurrency pair (Dash rate in relation to the dollar):

Below, under the charts, select the type of order – by market:

You can enter the amount in Dash cryptocurrency or specify the amount in USD. The purchase will occur instantly at the current value, if the required amount is on the balance sheet. The purchased Dash cryptocurrency will be stored in the “Wallet” section, from where it can then be transferred to local wallets, which I discussed above.

Also, you can make money on the change in the value of an asset by trading every day on the stock exchange (buy cheaper, sell more expensive). You can also place an “By Limit” order – in it you yourself indicate the price for which you will purchase the Dash cryptocurrency and it will be executed when the rate becomes equal to it.
