How To Buy¶
Liberty can be purchased and sold on a variety of exchanges.
- Exchanges are one of the most popular ways to trade cryptocurrency. A wide range of exchanges exist, each offering slightly different features. Some serve different markets, some are in direct competition, some have cheaper fees, and some are subject to more or less strict regulatory requirements. Most exchanges are centralized, meaning they are operated by a single company, which may be obliged by the laws of the jurisdiction in which it operates to collect data on its customers. Others are decentralized, but as a result have higher escrow requirements since you are dealing peer-to-peer instead of with a trusted entity. Exchanges can be broadly broken down into two categories: exchanges which accept national currency (fiat money) and exchanges which deal in cryptocurrencies only. For safety, exchanges should not be used as wallets. Exchanges are for trading, not for savings.

Cryptocurrency exchanges exist to convert national currency, also known as fiat money, into cryptocurrency. Many exchanges do not accept fiat money, and exchange between various cryptocurrencies only. Trades are handled on markets, and trades are created between pairs of currencies, identified by their ticker codes. The volume traded on an exchange provides a good indication of how quickly a buy or sell order you place will be filled.
