Learn how to buy Olympus (OHM) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Olympus in the UK

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

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

OHM is the token that is required to facilitate any internal operation taking place within the Olypus ecosystem. Here are a few key pointers to bear in mind before investing in the asset:

  • Unique value proposition:As per the official project whitepaper whitepaper Olympus’ reserve asset ‘OHM’ is designed to help weaken the crypto market’s overt reliance of the US dollar by pegging it to alternative stores of value, all while affording users the many benefits afforded by famous stablecoins such as USDT, USDC, etc.
  • Novel liquidity creation mechanism:While a number of DeFi platforms suffer from the issue of ‘liquidity migration’, causing their financial mechanisms to time and again be faced with various operational issues, Olympus is able to mitigate this problem by owning its liquidity pool via a process call bonding — wherein the platform generates liquidity from its users in return for discounted OHM tokens.
  • No details about dev team available: Even though the project is self-governing, thanks to its use of a DAO-centric framework, it should be mentioned that there are no details about any of Olympus’ core team members.
  • Crypto-based pegging model: As per the project websitewebsite Olympus works as ‘decentralized reserve currency’ that is governed by the OHM token, with each coin being backed by a number of different cryptos including DAI, FRAX, amongst others. As a result, the asset cannot ever fall below a set intrinsic value, giving it a unique economic framework that regular stablecoins cannot achieve.
