How to Buy PACcoin (PAC)

A Step-by-Step Beginner’s Guide

Buying cryptocurrency doesn’t have to be complicated!

Follow the steps below to get started investing in PACcoin (PAC).

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 PACcoin

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

Here is a list of online exchanges where PAC 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 PAC

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

The details for trading currencies vary depending on the exchange.

Generally, you will look for the PAC/BTC trading pair and buy or “place an order” to buy PAC 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 PACcoin 🙂

  1. Can i buy paccoin by sending BitcoinCash to cryptopia also?

    • Yes, but after you send it you will need to sell your Bitcoin Cash for either LTC (Litecoin) or DOGE (Dogecoin) because those are the only two trading pairs for PACcoin on Cryptopia.
