How do I get ETH?

Centralized exchanges (CEX) are businesses that allow you to buy cryptocurrencies like ETH using traditional currencies. They have custody over the ETH you buy unless you send it to a wallet that you control. Some wallets allow you to buy ETH using a debit/credit card, bank transfer or Apple Pay. Exchanges and wallets have restrictions on where they can sell cryptocurrencies. You can find a centralized exchange or wallet that serves your country by clicking here and scrolling down to the ‘What country do you live in?’ heading. Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) allow you to trade other cryptocurrency tokens for ETH. DEXs allow for peer-to-peer trading by using smart contracts to execute trades. They aren't for beginners as you'll need to already have some ETH to pay for the gas fees if you want to use them. Some popular DEXs are Uniswap and SushiSwap.
