So if you are new to crypto then you may have started by utilizing a large exchange such as Robinhood, Coinbase, or Binance. If this is the case then crypto is very easy to buy. However, if you are trying to find tokens that are not in the top Crytpo ranking it may be hard to purchase. Well, a good place to look is If you look at this site you will see a tab called “markets”. This is where you can find the particular exchanges that you can use to SWAP.

Understanding the Transaction

Now of course there is the GAS money. When SWAP Etherum there is always Gas money involved. Here is how it works. The large the investment into the token, coin, or currency, then the more that you get for that GAS money. So what do you mean by that? Well no matter what the cost will be on average between 50–80. That means that if you are only putting in 50 worth of ETH or at the time of writing this article may be .015, then you will basically pay that cost-plus 50+ on the gas money. The question will be is it worth it. So try to pay more than the travel money to make it worth the trip.

Great! Now you should be well on your way to understanding how to swap your Etherum or other currency for AltTokens. Happy Swaping!
