There is currently only one exchange with significant trade volume of the Genesis Vision Token, but it does not accept fiat currency (USD, EUR, etc.) deposits. Smaller volume exchanges also include Kucoin , HitBTC and Etherdelta , but we recommend Binance and will be further focusing only on Binance.

For a quick video tutorial on buying GVT, you can check out this video here.

If you don’t already own another cryptocurrency and want to purchase GVT, you’ll first need to buy Bitcoin or buy Ethereum.

You can then send your Bitcoin or Ethereum to Binance to trade them for GVT :

Login on your Binance account :

Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be taken to your Binance account page.

We always recommend that you enable 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) on any exchange you use to trade cryptocurrency to improve your account security. Specifically, we recommend using the Google Authenticator app, as SMS 2FA has a variety of security vulnerabilities. Google Authenticator is free to use from both the Google Play Store and Apple IOS Store.

Initially your account withdrawal limits will be set to a 2 BTC equivalent every 24 hours, but you can raise these limits by completing Binance’s Identity Authentication.

There’s a large number of cryptocurrencies available to deposit onto Binance , although trading pairs are denominated in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and USDT (Tether). For this example, I’ll be depositing Ethereum.

Whichever crypto coin you choose, click deposit then send funds to the given address.

You’ll be able to view pending deposits as you wait for the transactions to be confirmed.

When your deposit is fully confirmed, you’ll now see it shown in your available balances.

After your Bitcoin or Ethereum funds are deposited, go to the Binance BTC To GVT exchange page or the ETH To GVT exhange.

Then, place a Buy GVT order using either a limit or market order. If you’re placing a market order, you can choose the percentage of your Ethereum (or Bitcoin) balance you wish to use to buy GVT.

A Market order will purchase the maximum amount of GVT available for the Ethereum amount you’ve chosen to spend. It will purchase the cheapest available GVT until it has filled this amount.

The Genesis Vision Token should instantly show up in your Binance account.

Since GVT is a long term investment, it should not be taken lightly, and tokens are not advised to be stored on exchanges ( due to the inherent risks of centralized exchanges getting hacked ). Binance allows for the tokens to be withdrawn to your personal Ethereum wallets ( since GVT is an ERC-20 compatible token ), which you can access via myetherwallet.

For ultimate safety of your Genesis Vision Tokens, we suggest buying a hardware wallet for cold storing your coins. Both Trezor and Ledger support storing your GVT coins.
