How to Buy HempCoin (THC)

A Step-by-Step Beginner’s Guide

Buying cryptocurrency doesn’t have to be complicated!

Follow the steps below to get started investing in HempCoin (THC).

Step 1: Buy Bitcoin (BTC)

Exchange your fiat currency for Bitcoin at a top exchange.

I use Coinbase because it is one of the longest running and most reputable places to buy Bitcoin. It also has a well designed and easy-to-use interface.

After signing up and ID verification, you can buy Bitcoin with major currencies (USD, EUR, GBP, etc.) via online bank transfer or with credit/debit card.

Coinbase is currently available in these countries.

Other good places to buy Bitcoin are:

Step 2: Open an account with an exchange that trades HempCoin

Now that you have some Bitcoin, you need a place to trade it for THC.

Here is a list of online exchanges where THC can be bought and sold:

Exchanges are listed in order of trade volume (descending).

This list is current as of March 2018.

Step 3: Get your Bitcoin address

After opening an account at one of the exchanges above, obtain your BTC wallet address.

The details for obtaining a wallet address vary from exchange to exchange, but it is usually relatively straightforward.

Make sure to get your “deposit” or “receiver” address.

It will be a long string of random characters, looking something like this:


Copy this address for the next step. (Your own unique address of course, not the address above!)

Step 4: Send Bitcoin to your new wallet address

Send Bitcoin from your Coinbase account (or any other account/wallet funded with BTC) to your receiver BTC address from the step above.

Step 5: Trade BTC for THC

After you receive the BTC in your “secondary” exchange account (it usually takes a few minutes) you can trade it for HempCoin within the exchange.

The details for trading currencies vary depending on the exchange.

Generally, you will look for the THC/BTC trading pair and buy or “place an order” to buy THC with your BTC balance.

Your order may fill immediately or after a short while. If there is a delay, it is usually to find sufficient matching “sell” order(s) for your buy order.

Voila! Now you have some HempCoin 🙂
