How to Buy Holo in the US

Quick reference instructions, followed by more detailed instructions and screenshots below.

  1. Open an account on Coinbase.
  2. Open an account on Binance.
  3. Buy Ethereum ETH on Coinbase. ETH has a lower exchange and conversion fee and is faster than Bitcoin.
  4. Fund your Binance account with the Ethereum you just purchased. Note: Coinbase will charge a transfer fee, so make sure you purchase and send enough to make it worth it. I recommend at least $500 at a time.
  5. Open the Exchange page on Binance and trade as you will.

The reason you must fund Coinbase first is the company accepts FIAT currencies, i.e USD, EUR, etc. From there, you can take your FIAT converted to ETH and purchase Holo, or any other coin at Binance.

These two companies are the most reputable I have currently encountered and used. Fees are reasonable compared to other options I’ve tried.

Fee roundup:

Coinbase: $8.25 to transfer to Binance

Binance: 0.1% trading fee.

Binance: Free to withdraw from Binance back to Coinbase  – currently 0.1 Holo.

Coinbase to Bank Account ACH: Free.

Total estimated fees on a $500 investment based on January 2018 rates: $13.25

Holochain helps people:

  • Own their own data
  • Control their identity
  • Connect applications to suit their needs
  • Transact without centralized systems
  • Build lighter, faster, cheaper applications

Holochain apps help:

  • Governance & Collaboration
  • Social Media, Social Networks, & Vendor Links
  • Sharing Economy & Platform Co-ops Apps
  • Supply Chain Wins & Social Communities

Holochain applications (hApps) are held entirely by people. No trusted third parties. No central points of failure. They enable direct architectural consent and cryptographic communication that are low risk, for less cost.

Each agent owns an immutable hash chain and stores public data as a monotonic DHT node. Think lightweight, secure decentralized computing possible on mobile devices!

Every application runs its own holochain on its own terms, with cheaper hosting overhead. Since users are hosts, as more agents use an app, more hosting power and storage becomes available. The load gets lighter!

Each agent’s source chain holds the app’s “DNA”—the code that runs the app. Its peer validation requirements ensure secure apps. That data cannot be counterfeited, tampered with, or lost. Each app stores its data in a validating DHT creating redundancy of public data across randomized nodes. When nodes go offline, the DHT is self-healing and rebalances the data to different nodes. And if someone alters their own app code they effectively fork themselves out of the shared DHT space into an entirely different application.
