Learn how to buy Iron Bank EUR (IBEUR) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Iron Bank EUR in the UK

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

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

The ibEURO token takes the idea of stablecoins beyond US dollars. While an innovative idea, there are several risks associated with placing funds into this digital asset. Here are a few points to consider before investing in ibEURO:

  • Reliance on data oracles: The ibEURO token maintains its peg thanks to data price oracles. If the data price oracle were to malfunction, the peg between ibEURO and real-world Euros may be lost.
  • Young and untested protocol:While is a well-developed decentralised finance protocol, the idea of Fixed Forex was only implemented in late-2021. While it provides users access to synthetic stablecoins outside of the US dollar, the idea has not yet stood a true test of time. The product’s website contains a “Fixed Forex Disclaimer” which states that although the protocol has been audited it is still experiencing ongoing development
  • Cryptocurrency backed collateral: Although the token is pegged to the Euro, the collateral backing a loan of ibEURO would still be linked with volatile cryptocurrencies. If cryptocurrency markets were to fall, an ibEURO loan may dip below the collateral factor threshold. Cryptocurrency collateral would start to be sold to cover any losses.
