Where to buy bZx Protocol in the UK

It looks like BZRX may not be available to purchase on an exchange in the UK.

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

Decentralised 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 decentralised exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.

How to purchase BZRX using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find BZRX on a decentralised exchange and make sure bZx Protocol 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 BZRX using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for BZRX 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 BZRX 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 finalise and the BZRX 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.

Is bZx Protocol a good investment?

Cryptocurrencies are high-risk assets to trade at the best of times, but there are additional risks that users should be aware of with bZx specifically.
  • Low liquidity. bZx is one of the smaller tokens on the market with a market cap of less than $60 million as of July 2021. And while bZx is listed for buying and selling on the largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, Binance, along with well-known exchanges like Uniswap and, the token’s own trading volume is rather low, with few buyers and sellers swapping the token back and forth daily. This means that it could be difficult to sell bZx tokens at the price listed, and if traders need to cash in their coins in a hurry, they could be forced to sell at a price point lower than they want.
  • Poor security history. bZx was hit by 3 large-scale hacks in 2020. According to CryptoPotato, the DeFi protocol lost $1.6 million in ETH across 2 successful attacks in February 2020, and a third, larger hack saw $8 million in ETH drained from bZx wallets.
  • Regulation concerns. DeFi platforms, crypto lending services and major exchanges are all having to accede to tighter regulations at the moment. For example, according to Benzinga, the popular crypto lending service BlockFi has been issued a cease and desist order by the Texas State Securities Board, decentralised exchange Uniswap says it has delisted 100 tokens that could be considered securities, and according to Cointelegraph, the popular FTX exchange has dramatically cut the amount of leverage available for margin trading tokens to a maximum of 20x. It is likely that bZx will be affected by this kind of concern, and as a DeFi and lending protocol, it could face the ire of market regulators if it does not fall in line, with a commensurate effect on the price of the bZx token.
