Learn how to buy Convex CRV (CVXCRV) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Convex CRV in the UK

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

You can still purchase CVXCRV 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 CVXCRV using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find CVXCRV on a decentralised exchange and make sure Convex CRV 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 CVXCRV using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for CVXCRV 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 CVXCRV 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 CVXCRV 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 Convex CRV a good investment?

cvxCRV is a token unique to the Convex Finance ecosystem. While providing higher rewards for CRV token holders, the aspects of the token should be fully understood. Here are a few key factors to consider:

  • Simple yet effective reward system: When receiving rewards from cvxCRV tokens, users are given the option of not only receiving trading fees but also a sizable chunk of the boosted CRV tokens that are otherwise distributed among the platform’s liquidity providers. This set-up establishes a balanced reward distribution system and allows for better capital efficiency within the ecosystem.
  • Low-fee environment:As per Convex’s website, the Convex ecosystem levies no withdrawal fees on its patrons and charges a minimal performance fee rate – the latter being used to cover the system’s internal gas costs for rewarding CVX stakers.
  • Exchanging CRV to cvxCRV:cvxCRV is minted at a ratio of 1:1 with CRV tokens that are locked within the platform. Users can then stake cvxCRV for higher rewards. However, it is important to note that once CRV has been staked in the Convex Finance protocol and exchanged for cvxCRV, the operation cannot be reversed. cvxCRV cannot be swapped back to CRV.
