Where to buy Nexus Mutual

It looks like NXM may not be available to purchase on an exchange in the US.

You can still purchase NXM by using a decentralized exchange (DEX) instead. Decentralized exchanges are web applications that run on blockchains like Ethereum and allow users to trade any asset directly with one another.

Decentralized exchanges (DEX) are unregulated and run using autonomous pieces of code known as smart contracts. To use a DEX you must interact with the blockchain directly, which is not recommended for novice users. Please learn about decentralized exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.

How to purchase NXM using a decentralized exchange.
  1. Find NXM on a decentralized exchange and make sure Nexus Mutual can be traded for ETH which is the native asset of Ethereum. Popular DEXs include Uniswap, SushiSwap and 1INCH.
  2. Buy ETH to trade for NXM using an exchange like Gemini. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for NXM as well as ETH to pay for transaction fees on the Ethereum network (known as gas). You can use a service like Etherscan to get an idea of how much gas fees currently cost.
  3. Transfer the ETH into a web 3.0 wallet like MetaMask to connect to the DEX.
  4. Trade ETH for NXM on the DEX of your choice, following the instructions on screen. Make sure to leave enough ETH in your wallet to pay for gas.
  5. Wait for the transaction to finalize and the NXM tokens will arrive in your wallet.
  6. You may now keep the tokens in your web 3.0 wallet or transfer them somewhere more secure like a hardware wallet.

You can follow the same process when you want to sell your tokens, or come back to this page to see if they can now be traded on an exchange in the US.

Best Nexus Mutual wallets to store your NXM

Is Nexus Mutual a good investment?

Cryptocurrencies are highly speculative assets that come with a range of risks. Additionally, buyers of NXM tokens may want to consider the following:
  • Unique business model: Nexus Mutual currently makes use of a unique business model referred to as a “discretionary mutual,” wherein the mutual can elect to pay claims at its discretion. The platform made its first payout last year after DeFi lender bZx’s native smart contract code was exploited by a group of hackers.
  • UK-based entity: The platform is registered in the United Kingdom as a “limited by guarantee business,” usually given to non-profit organizations. Furthermore, since Nexus Mutual’s business operations are largely decentralized, the platform is owned entirely by its members.
  • Low entry barrier: Anyone can make use of the platform to gain access to a wide array of insurance offerings. To make use of Nexus, users are required to purchase NXM tokens that they can then leverage in order to acquire coverage as well as participate in the protocol’s native governance processes.
  • Purchase and operational limitations: Unlike a wide array of cryptocurrencies, NXM tokens cannot be bought via regular cryptocurrency exchanges and are only available for purchase via the official Nexus Mutual platform. The tokens can only be swapped among members of the ecosystem, but can also be traded and sold as usual outside the ecosystem in the form of wrapped tokens (WNXM).
  • Wide coverage possibilities: In addition to providing users with coverage against smart contract hacks and cold wallet compromises, the platform also offers traditional offerings such as insurance against earthquakes and thefts.
