Some cryptocurrencies don’t really require much introduction. That is because they are the pioneers and also doing some things that no other crypto is. And without a doubt, Monero cryptocurrency is one of those and is also one of my favorite anonymous currencies out there.

For those of you who don’t know about Monero, here is a brief intro to it:

Monero (XMR) is an open-source cryptocurrency created in April 2014 that focuses on privacy and decentralization that doesn’t take Bitcoin core’s code to start with their cryptocurrency.

Monero should be a part of your portfolio because if and when governments around the world launch a crackdown on cryptocurrencies, Monero-like anonymous coins will have great use cases to offer.

And precisely because of all these reasons, many investors want to buy it. Therefore, in this post, I will tell you different ways by which you can buy Monero.

Where & How To Buy Monero (XMR)

Binance, one of the busiest cryptocurrency exchanges out there today, has supported the buying/selling of Monero (XMR) ever since its launch in 2017.

However, Binance is a crypto-to-crypto exchange which means fiat currencies like USD, EUR is not supported. Here you can deposit BTC, ETH, etc to convert it into Monero cryptocurrency. Following are the supported pairs on Binance exchange for Monero:

To make the exchange autonomous and governable they have introduced HT tokens so that’s why in sort they are decentralized governed platform.

Monero cryptocurrency is rather famous, especially in the dark markets but it has other use cases of privacy, security, and fungibility also. And that is why, in last 3-4 years, it has developed a significant market share and is also being traded on many exchanges.

Some other exchanges/websites that you can use to buy Monero cryptocurrency:

  • Don’t use these exchanges as a wallet to HODL your cryptos.

It is okay if you intend to store the cryptocurrencies on these exchanges for a few hours or even a few days for the sake of trading. Storing your cryptos on them for any longer can put you in losses.

Therefore, you should get a secure wallet for your Monero cryptocurrency too. You can find the details here – Monero Wallet: How to Create & Use Monero Wallet Address Online; and here.

    Hi Sudhir,

    That was quite an informative article considering Monero is still underrated in comparison of other altcoins such as Dash, Lightcoin, and Ripple. But in the real world, I would Monero is the real cryptocurrency even better than Bitcoin as far as secrecy factor is concerned.

    1. Sudhir Khatwani

      I agree with you!!

  2. Gautam Roy

    Thanks, Sudhir for this useful article. I think these type of article helps Crypto buyers a lot. But I have a question about. What is the future of Monero Coins? I have also written a similar article on Monero exchanges but didn’t give any information on future of Monro as I was in suspect too.

    What is your point of view?

  3. Andrej

    You mention MoneroForCash, but how come you don’t mention LocalMonero? They’ve been operating for almost a year now and have been endorsed by Monero core dev team members and are trusted by the community.
