How do I find the best places to buy Sentinel?

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 Sentinel?

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 Sentinel.

  • 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 DVPN 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 Sentinel?

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

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

What is the easiest way to buy Sentinel?

The easiest way to buy DVPN 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 DVPN, 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 Analysis tools to get an idea of how the price of Sentinel has been performing recently.

Is Sentinel a good investment?

There are several things to consider before buying DVPN, the native token of the Sentinel platform.

  • Growing demand: Public opinion on VPNs has shifted as of late. Originally thought of as a gateway to accessing illegal content in other countries, they are now seen as a first line of defense against censorship and data distribution. In 2020, the VPN industry grew by 15.57%, and Sentinel’s whitepaper suggests it will be worth $75 billion USD by 2030. If this growth occurs as projected, the demand for products like Sentinel will also rise.
  • Bandwith mining: Investors that are drawn towards sustainable assets may want to consider Sentinel’s bandwidth mining. dVPNs are hosted atop idle, ‘already existing’ bandwidth capacity, reducing the network’s strain on the environment.
  • Development and accessibility: For Sentinel to achieve widespread adoption, it must continue to grow its list of compatible products. If dVPNs are unavailable on desktop PCs or iOS devices for an extended period of time, it could heavily impact the platform’s eventual adoption.
