Don’t see my exchange on there. Would I have to create some other wallet?
Use the filters on that site to narrow down which exchange to use.
Then use this link find a wallet:
Personally I use the Kraken exchange and Natrium wallet.
I have a MetaMask wallet but it doesn’t seem to have it. I’ll check out other exchanges and wallets. Thank you
Yes I think MetaMask is for the Ethereum Blockchain.
Nano doesn’t run on the ETH block chain?
No, it has its own blockchain
Nope, nano is an L1 crypto, the block lattice structure and ORV consensus mechanism allows for extremely fast, feeless an green transfer of value.
You lost me with some of those technical terms. Do you know where I can read/learn more about this from?
I usually recommend my [Basics to Nano](https://senatus.substack.com/p/the-basics-of-nano-why-its-such-an), it's a fairly short read. To answer your question of what Nano runs on - it's a blockchain of its own. Most cryptocurrencies are either a clone of Bitcoin, or are "built on Ethereum", the built on Ethereum ones are the ones you can use on Metamask. Nano stands on its own as a crypto - it's not built on ETH but is a completely separate chain.
I see. I’ll def take a deeper dive into it
Sorry for the jargon, senatus is a much better communicator than me, listen to them
All good! Thanks to the way you communicated it peaked my interest to learn more. Appreciate it
Yeah. I hate paying those gas fees. But if Nano eliminates that. I hope to see one day other cryptos built off the nano chain
Yeah I’m def going look into it! Thank you
Why do you want other cryptos? What's wrong with just sticking to Nano?
Im going try Nano out. But I trade with crypto & the way it’s all set up on ETH blockchain we’ll always have fees.
NANO is not a platform, like Ethereum. It's its own coin
Will check it out
What I have been doing is buying XLM (Stellar) on Coinbase, and sending that to Kraken to exchange for Nano.
You can’t purchase Nano with regular USD?
Getting USD into Kraken requires a wire transfer, which usually costs more than the fees of going the long way around.
I see. Smart thinking
You can buy with a linked bank account or ACH on Kraken but the fees are not great
Alright. Noted. Thank you
You can on crypto.com
I just buy mine on Crypto.com
Binance is holding deep nano bags for you. Get nano there and put it in your Natrium wallet. You can get Natrium inside Play and App Store,
indeed they are the largest exchange with the most nano owned. take them off, they are also smart to apply the withdrawing fee of 0.01 nano. the highest of all exchanges approximately. dirty AF
The withdraw fee will get reimbursed by the community
Right? I think community faucets paid any withdrawal fees I had tenfold.
Kraken has a withdrawal fee of Ӿ0.05
I’ll check them out. I’m surprised Gemini doesn’t have them rn
Here is a rough list of exchanges where you can obtain Nano:
For storage I recommend Natrium (for smartphone), or if you intend to hodl large amounts, ledger+nault
Kraken or Crypto.com are good.
Going check both out 👍🏻
I recommend Kraken as a first resort.
For Crypto.com, you need to mind the fact that if you're in the USA, you only have access to the in-phone mobile applications for now.
These applications are pretty good but you better buy your Nanos *during the first month*, as the transaction fees are waived, and after that they're relatively high. (Soon the Crypto.com Exchange will be available in the USA, which is accessible on a proper computer, and whose fees are much more reasonable).
Kraken, Binance and BinanceUS, and I think one or two more
[You can also get some as your ETH mining rewards using the 2miners pool.](https://2miners.com/blog/how-to-get-payouts-for-ethereum-mining-without-fees/)
For your nano wallet I recommend you use Natrium on mobile and Nault.cc on desktop (Atomic Wallet is great also). Don't forget to save your seed phrase.
Bitvavo if you are from Europe
Binance i think
Creating a new account for /u/PartyLifeAnt and sending ```0.01337 Nano```. [Transaction on Nano Crawler](https://nanocrawler.cc/explorer/block/7ED060854B9889BFA87258E2AA1A64798D574C4745FC9BCE04849C90C6D7BFB2)
