To buy crypto:
- From the Home screen, tap the asset you want to buy.
- Tap Trade
- Press Buy
- Enter an amount of crypto to buy
- Press the Buy button
- Slide to confirm
Crypto is purchased by entering the amount of the asset you want to buy. Once an amount is entered, an estimated Total will appear below, estimating the total USD required to purchase the entered amount. You can enter different asset amounts to reach the desired total to spend. Slippage can occur changing this total amount the order settles for, and there is price protection in place to prevent orders from filling at more than 2% off the spot price, so you will need to hold 2% more funds than the estimated total for the order.
If you enter an amount and get an “insufficient funds” error, you are likely placing an order that could slip past your available funds. You can then try entering a slightly smaller amount.
Once you buy, the trade will list as “Pending” on the asset screen. You can wait a few moments, and pull down on the screen to refresh and see once settled.
Buying crypto is restricted to certain regions. You can check your eligibility in the Services section of the Account tab within the LVL app.
