Buying AE from different countries

Hello, all. I would like to start a thread about how you buy (or sell) AE from your country. This is to hopefully crowdsource information and have the community collaborate on a Wiki that would help beginners learn how they can access AE tokens, depending on where they’re from. I will start by adding how I purchase AE tokens from the Philippines. Feel free to comment in the thread on how you access AE tokens from your country.

Currently, I have to go through BTC, ETH, or BCH before getting AE. To go from fiat to crypto, these are two primary options I have. There may be more but these are the ones I use.

Fiat to Crypto

1. PDAX

Pro’s: Better rates than Coins.ph (option 2) because of easy access to their exchange.

There are three options to cash in:

  • Paymaya (virtual debit card) 3.1% fee
  • Credit (or debit card) 3.1% fee
  • GCash

2. Coins.ph

Pro’s: Easy access through mobile app. More cash in methods.
Con’s: Higher rates. Exchange was very buggy the last I tried. Gave up on that.

Cash in methods:

  • Bank transfers
  • Western Union / Palawan etc

BTC/ETH/BCH to AE

Once I have some crypto it’s easy for me to get AE. I normally use Gate.io simply out of habit. I should probably explore other exchanges. For reference, here is a list of exchanges that have AE trading pairs.

Additionally, you can also easily swap BTC/ETH to AE on JellySwap
Buying AE directly with a credit card is also possible through Changelly. There are fees for Changelly, of course.

Please feel free to contribute your knowledge. Your input is definitely valuable. Thank you in advance. :heart:
