Learn how to buy LUKSO (LYXE) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy LUKSO in the UK

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

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

Whether purchasing LYXe for future use or as an investment, any altcoin carries high risks and it’s important to understand the key features of the token. For LYXe, here are a few factors to consider:
  • Supply. There is a maximum supply of 100 million tokens. According to coin aggregator, CoinMarketCap, at the time of writing, the current circulating supply is 15 million. It is expected that when the network is launched in Q4 2021, the circulating supply will increase to 35 million.
  • LYX vs LYXe. Both LYX and LYXe represent the same asset, but they exist on different blockchain networks. LYX represents the native token of the LUKSO blockchain and will be used to secure the decentralised infrastructure. It will be used to pay for transaction fees on the blockchain and will be required for those wishing to stake and participate in block production. LYXe are pre-launch tokens that are situated on the Ethereum blockchain. Once LUKSO mainnet has launched, LYXe tokens will migrate to LYX.
  • Transaction fees. The future LYX token will be paid by users and collected by block producers. Transaction fees will prevent network spam and reward block validation. The transaction fee on the network will depend on transaction complexity.
  • Staking. Once LYXe tokens have migrated to LYX, any token holder can stake in the blockchain network to receive a share of the transaction fees and block rewards.
