Learn how to buy Hector Network (HEC) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Hector Network in the UK

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

You can still purchase HEC by using a decentralised exchange (DEX) instead. Decentralised exchanges are web applications that run on blockchains like Fantom 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 HEC using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find HEC on a decentralised exchange and make sure Hector Network can be traded for FTM which is the native asset of Fantom. The most popular DEX on Fantom is Spookyswap.
  2. Buy FTM to trade for HEC using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough FTM to swap for HEC as well as FTM to pay for transaction fees on the Fantom network (known as gas). Gas fees on Fantom cost a fraction of a cent.
  3. Transfer the FTM into a web 3.0 wallet like MetaMask to connect to the DEX.
  4. Trade FTM for HEC on the DEX of your choice, following the instructions on screen. Make sure to leave enough FTM in your wallet to pay for gas.
  5. Wait for the transaction to finalise and the HEC 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 UK.

Is Hector Network a good investment?

Cryptocurrencies are highly speculative assets that come with a range of risks. As a result, all altcoins should be thoroughly researched before any investment is made. Potential investors of HEC may want to consider the following:

  • Ambitious ecosystem: Hector Finance offers a vast range of services and products. Although on their own the products and services are not unique, all services and product are offered under a single roof which makes Hector Finance an all encompassing platform. The expansive range of features could help to attract users to the ecosystem and keep them within the ecosystem instead of drifting over to competitors. However, having too many subprojects may also deter from the quality and execution of the protocol. Future investors should test to see if all aspects of the ecosystem are competitive with industry equivalents.
  • Deflationary token: HEC is the native token of the protocol and the first-ever deflationary rebase token. It allows its holders to stake and earn generous rewards with an attractive annual percentage yield (APY). The staking mechanism creates scarcity through buybacks and burns, and thus it is also responsible for controlling token supply.
  • Audited: Hector Finance has been audited by Certik. Fortunately, no key issues were found during the report. Although an audit of smart contracts does not guarantee that the protocol won’t incur issues, the audit may provide some comfort to future investors. The full report can be found within Hector Finance’s documentation.
  • Future vision: In the future, the protocol hopes to add Hector NFT, Hector Launch, Hector University, and Hector Pay to its subproject lineup. Having a forward vision is encouraging to see from a project, but the project will need to execute this vision accurately to ensure it remains competitive within the Fantom ecosystem.
