Buying Cryptocurrency with Digital Currencies (Altcoins)

It is possible to buy cryptocurrency with digital currencies (altcoins) on Paxful. This article gives you an overview of buying cryptocurrency using any of the supported digital currencies. 


Before buying cryptocurrency with digital currencies, make sure you have enough coins on your wallet. Also, make sure you have studied all specifics related to the cryptocurrency you chose and be aware of any possible transaction limitations or specialties. 



The first step to buying cryptocurrency with digital currencies is to look for an offer that accepts that specific cryptocurrency you’re looking for. You’ll also need to enter the amount you wish to purchase and the currency you prefer.

Note: You still have to choose preferred fiat currency as it will be used as a reference point to the market price of a cryptocurrency. However, it is advised to choose USD as cryptocurrency worldwide price is set in this currency.



注意:売却者は、正しいウォレットアドレスを提供する責任があります。 急いで取引を行うのではなく、ウォレットアドレスが最終的かつ100%正しいかどうかを売却者に再確認してください。


To buy cryptocurrency with digital currencies, you can also create your own offer.
Here are a couple of tips for your offer:

  • 取引中の交渉は禁止されているため、自分に有利だと思われるマージンを設定するようにしてください。
  • 明確なオファー条件と指示を書くようにしてください。
  • Make it clear which side is bearing the transaction fee if any.



Once you have paid the seller and uploaded proof of your payment (transaction number), click Paid. If you don’t click it, the trade will eventually expire and the cryptocurrency will go back from the trade escrow to the seller.

The last step is for the seller to confirm the payment. Please be patient because this may take some time. Once the seller has confirmed the payment, they should release the cryptocurrency to you and complete the trade.
