Learn how to buy Dawn Protocol (DAWN) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Dawn Protocol in the UK

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

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

DAWN has been growing strongly over the past couple of years and, in April 2021, was added to the popular FTX exchange, improving token liquidity and spreading the word about the project to a large new audience. Along with a USD pair, token perpetual futures can also be traded on FTX, adding to the depth of the market available.
  • New games. Dawn says it has plans to launch 20 new titles on its platforms to inspire new gamers to join the project. The latest support comes for Free Fire, a popular mobile battle royale game, with Dawn hosting its first tournament focused on central South America. If the protocol can continue to expand into new markets and pick out the most popular games, then the DAWN token could continue to rise in value in future.
  • Market size. The future of Dawn Protocol is heavily dependent on the ongoing popularity of e-sports and online gaming in general. According to market research company Ovum, the global market for this section of the gaming industry was $733 million in 2017 and could reach as much as $1.9 billion by 2022. If the market does not continue to grow in line with these bullish forecasts, or the number of players declines over time for any reason, this reduced market size could affect the price of DAWN.
  • Token interoperability. Dawn Protocol uses the ERC-777 token format. While it comes with some security benefits over ERC-20, it is not as widely used as the ERC-20 format. ERC-777 is focused on allowing more complex functions in trading and swapping tokens between users, but not every project uses this standard. If the market and Ethereum developers in general decide to go in a different direction to ERC-777 in future, Dawn Protocol could become obsolete.
