How do I find the best places to buy Ignis?

Cryptocurrency exchanges offer similar services, but differ in a few key ways – mainly fees, the range of cryptos available and payment methods. You can use our table to compare the features of popular cryptocurrency exchanges available in Canada to help you choose the one that's right for you.

Some other factors you may want to consider are customer support, user reviews, ease of use and whether or not the exchange is registered with a local regulator. This information can be found by clicking on the exchange name in the table which will take you to its review page.

What will I need to buy Ignis?

To create an account on any cryptocurrency exchange you will need an email address. Some exchanges may also ask for a phone number and photo ID, so it's a good idea to have those ready.

An increasing number of cryptocurrency exchanges will ask to verify your identity before you can deposit funds and start trading Ignis.

  • This process is known as Know Your Customer (KYC) and usually requires photo ID and a webcam or smartphone. You may also need to prove your address by uploading a copy of a recent bank statement or utility bill.
  • Some exchanges allow you to deposit and trade cryptocurrencies without passing KYC, but they will not allow you to transfer local currency from your bank account. So if you are planning on purchasing IGNIS with your local currency then you will need to pass KYC.
  • Once you have verified your identity, it is a good idea to enable 2-factor authentication (2FA) before depositing any funds. This will increase the security of your account and help keep your funds safe.

What are the best ways to buy Ignis?

Once you've created an account, you will need to deposit funds to buy IGNIS with. You can either deposit local currency from a bank account or credit card, or transfer cryptocurrency from another exchange or wallet. Here are some popular ways to buy IGNIS:

  • Bank account: Transfers from local bank accounts are usually free, but you will need to double-check this with the exchange you choose – this information can be found in our table by clicking on 'view details'.
  • Credit or debit card: Linking a card to your account is another convenient way to top up your account, but be aware that it usually attracts an additional fee. An advantage, though, is that you can use a card to make instant purchases or set up a recurring purchase.
  • Cryptocurrency: You can usually purchase IGNIS by trading it for another cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or a stablecoin. This varies between exchanges though, so you will need to search for IGNIS on the spot market to see what cryptocurrencies it can be traded for.

What is the easiest way to buy Ignis?

The easiest way to buy IGNIS is by placing an 'instant buy' order to purchase it for a fixed price but not all crypto exchanges offer this feature.

Alternatively, you can open a trade on the spot market which allows you to set your own price – this is the most common way to purchase cryptocurrency. Using the instant buy feature is straightforward but typically more expensive than using the spot market.

Before buying IGNIS, you may want to check the market conditions. To help you decide if now is the right time to buy, you can take a look at our all-time high tool to get an idea of how the price of Ignis has been performing recently.

Is Ignis a good investment?

Cryptocurrency purchases should always be evaluated as digital assets can be extremely volatile. Here are some factors to consider before purchasing Ignis:
  • Ease of use: Owing to the fact that Ignis is a completely permissionless protocol, it can be used by anyone without any developmental restrictions. Since the platform is compatible with all of Ardor’s native functionality modules, it is able to support the latest contracts and main-net features.
  • Distribution: The maximum supply of IGNIS coins was capped at just less than 1 billion. 440 million were sold during an initial coin offering. 500 million were airdropped to holders of a predecessor coin, Nxt. The remaining 60 million have been kept by Jelurida.
  • High security: Using IGNIS it is possible to add another layer of security to an Ardor account. According to the official project whitepaper, Ignis allows users to establish an “approval account” that monitors all outgoing transactions — much like a decentralised 2FA system.
  • Asset issuance: Ignis offers users the ability to mint new digital tokens, which can be completed within minutes. All a user has to do is set the number of tokens to be minted and define the intrinsic monetary properties. This could be attractive for new projects wishing to establish themselves on the blockchain.
