Where to buy LA in the UK

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

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

Due to the volatile and risky nature of the cryptocurrency markets, it is highly critical that you conduct thorough research and due diligence before investing in a certain token. There are a few aspects you should consider before adding LA to your cryptocurrency portfolio:
  • Supply: LA has a circulating supply of 61 million tokens with a maximum supply of 400 million. Since only 15% of the maximum supply of the token is currently in supply, this is an inflationary asset.
  • Largest IEO market: According to Inwara, a research firm, LATOKEN is the largest Initial Exchange Offering market. Since its establishment in 2017, it has connected with over 130 startups and has over 400,000 users of the platform with 1.5 million visitors every month. Entrepreneurs can access funding through LATOKEN IEO Launchpad.
  • Tokenisation: The unique value proposition that LATOKEN brings to its users is the tokenisation of assets ranging from stocks, commodities and debt instruments to real estate and artwork. They do this by offering you assets to tokens directly linked to the price of these assets.
  • Decentralised Finance (DeFi): The company has launched a decentralised exchange (DEX) that supports ERC-20 standard tokens, LADEX. They are also building a product for the security tokens market called LACHAIN.
