Learn how to buy Hedget (HGET) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Hedget in the UK

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

You can still purchase HGET 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 HGET using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find HGET on a decentralised exchange and make sure Hedget 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 HGET using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for HGET 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 HGET 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 HGET 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.

Best Hedget wallets to store your HGET

Is Hedget a good investment?

Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile and speculative assets. Buying any cryptocurrency comes with a high level of risk, so make sure you’re aware of the following factors before buying HGET:
  • Investment. CoinDesk reported in August 2020 Hedget raised $500,000 in seed funding. The funding was led by FBG Capital and NGC Ventures.
  • Competition. The DeFi sector is a growing and highly competitive space, so it’s worth considering which other players are targeting decentralised options trading. Some of the competitors you may want to keep an eye on include Hegic and FinNexus, among many others.
  • Token supply. The maximum supply of HGET tokens is fixed at 10,000,000. 10% of those tokens are allocated to the Hedget team, 50% are set aside for liquidity mining, and 20% are locked in reserve with their future usage to be determined by the platform’s DAO. Check the Hedget whitepaper and website for more details of token distribution.
  • Still in development. It’s still early days for the Hedget platform. Whether the Hedget team can continue to achieve the goals on their development roadmap, and whether the platform has any widespread appeal, remains to be seen.
