Look, we all know that crypto can feel confusing at first. Heck, even the word crypto means secret or hidden. But we’re here to decode the process and make it easy for you to jump in with confidence.
Ready? Let’s go.
- Download the Coinbase app.
- Create a Coinbase account.
- Tap Buy > Ethereum > Purchase with card, paypal, or bank account.*
- Now download the Coinbase Wallet app.
- Tap “Fund your wallet” on the main screen “From your Coinbase Account” to transfer your ETH into your wallet.
That’s it! You’ve now successfully used the Coinbase marketplace to purchase your first crypto and safely transferred it to your crypto wallet. If you’re ready to take the next couple steps, we’ll show you how to use your ETH to purchase $BETTER.
- Open this Uniswap link.
- Click “Connect Wallet” and a QR code will appear.
- Use your Coinbase Wallet app to scan the QR code and your wallet will automatically connect to Uniswap.
- Now select the amount of ETH you want to swap for $BETTER.
- Hit “Approve” and then confirm on your phone (this gives permission to swap tokens).**
- Hit “Swap” and then confirm the swap on your phone.**
Yay! You did it! We’re super proud of you for taking the leap. We’re also proud of you for creating planet-positive impact with your purchase. Now let’s have some fun and see what else you can do with your $BETTER.
Note: BETTER isn’t yet listed as an official token on Uniswap, so you’ll see a notice confirming you want to swap for BETTER. Please confirm the token address is: 0x3fcf8c54e2de40e9da7373ae33767093d2998568
*It may take anywhere from a few minutes to a week for Coinbase to verify your account.
**Sometimes it takes a few minutes for transactions on the Ethereum network to go through, but you should see the $BETTER tokens hit your wallet soon.
