How do I find the best places to buy Mixin?

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.

What will I need to buy Mixin?

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 Mixin.

  • 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 XIN 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 Mixin?

Once you've created an account, you will need to deposit funds to buy XIN 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 XIN:

  • 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 XIN by trading it for another cryptocurrency like Bitcoin or a stablecoin. This varies between exchanges though, so you will need to search for XIN on the spot market to see what cryptocurrencies it can be traded for.

What is the easiest way to buy Mixin?

The easiest way to buy XIN 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.

Is Mixin a good investment?

Before rushing out to invest in any cryptocurrency it’s first worth researching the token, it’s associated platform and observe what factors might influence its price.
  • Competition. According to Mixin’s documentation, its goal is to address the blockchain trilemma (particularly speed and interoperability) and improve the ecosystem of decentralised finance as a whole. Most newly minted tokens and cryptocurrency networks are attempting to thwart issues with scalability, and XIN’s point of difference remains a little difficult to pinpoint. The app, Mixin Messenger, is in direct competition with social media giant Facebook, who is developing the ability for its users to send cryptocurrency to and from one another.
  • Tokenomics. The total supply of XIN is capped at 1 million; of that, 560,770 is in circulation according to the Mixin team. 500,000 XIN is reserved for the running of the network’s nodes, while the rest is distributed among Mixin Messenger adopters, the development team and public trading pairs. To stake XIN on the Mixin platform, users must delegate at least 10,000 XIN.
  • Price history. Upon release, XIN tokens were priced at over US$2,000. Soon after, the value plummeted, with the price never again exceeding US$1,500 and even dropping as low as US$90. Such volatility and uncertainty in price suggests purchasing XIN may not be ideal for those who are after a safe, steady investment.
