Welcome to our guide on how to buy IXS tokens. We decided to create this guide due to the many requests from the community.
IXS can be bought on both the Ethereum network and the Polygon network. This article will go through the different ways you can purchase IXS. If you have plans to use your IXS to stake or provide liquidity, it is highly recommended to do this on the Polygon network as transaction costs are very high on the Ethereum network.
Please refer to our CoinMarketCap page to see where you can purchase IXS: https://coinmarketcap.com/.
IXS on the Polygon network is referred to as WIXS. IXS and WIXS are the same token and have the same value. 1 WIXS is 1 IXS if there is a small price difference it is due to the different exchanges. Note as well that if using QuickSwap to buy WIXS, you need to use MATIC as a purchase currency.
Before going to the QuickSwap Exchange, you need to have MATIC on your wallet with that amount you wish to purchase WIXS with. Or make sure that you can swap to MATIC from another currency on QuickSwap as an additional step.
Remember that when you click on the amount of MATIC you want to use to buy WIXS, it is important to not click MAX because you will need some MATIC left in your wallet to pay for transactions on the Polygon network as this is their native token used for transaction costs.
Once you have MATIC in your wallet, please follow these steps:
If you cant see your WIXS in your wallet, you have to add the contract address manually to your wallet.
On Metamask, for example, you can scroll down on the homepage and click import tokens. You can refer to this guide (https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015489031-How-to-add-unlisted-tokens-custom-tokens-in-MetaMask) if you need assistance or come by our Telegram channel!
Note: If you already own IXS on the Ethereum Network, these can also be bridged to IXS tokens on the Polygon network (WIXS). Please refer to this guide (https://ixswap.io/how-to-bridge-ixs-to-polygon/) to see how to conduct the bridge of your tokens.
If you want to stake or join the liquidity mining program on the Polygon network, check out these guides:
IXS tokens will gradually become listed/purchasable on more centralized and decentralized exchanges. Always ensure that the token address is correct before you make a trade/purchase, you may check the IXS token address on CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully gotten your IXS tokens on IX Swap (please ensure you have enough ETH for gas fees).
