How to buy Presearch (PRE) in the UK

Learn how to buy Presearch (PRE) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Presearch in the UK

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

You can still purchase PRE 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 PRE using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find PRE on a decentralised exchange and make sure Presearch 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 PRE using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for PRE 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 PRE 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 PRE 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 Presearch wallets to store your PRE

You can keep your PRE on the exchange you purchased it on, or move it to a personal wallet:

  • Some people like to use their own wallets to guarantee total ownership over their assets, or to use them with other applications like DeFi services.
  • Hardware wallets are typically considered to be the safest type of cryptocurrency wallet, as they use a physical device to enhance security in a number of ways. You can take a look at some of our top hardware wallet picks for self-custody of your PRE below.

Is Presearch a good investment?

As with any investment, it is vital you understand the risks and potential upside of the asset before making any financial decision. With regards to PRE, here are a few things to consider:

  • Presearch Network: Presearch nodes process all users' search requests and power the wider Presearch network. For supporting the network, node operators are rewarded with PRE. The node software can be installed on any computer and runs in the Docker software environment, which is compatible with all operating systems allowing for a low barrier to entry.
  • Keyword Staking: Keyword Staking is a revolutionary concept that allows token holders to commit PRE tokens to specific keywords or terms. The new concept will grant free traffic by offering advertising space to the largest stake. Holders still maintain ownership of their PRE while staked. This innovative application of the PRE token could help to drive demand if the Presearch search engine is able to break into the mainstream.
  • Ambitious mission: Presearch aims to create open and transparent algorithms that leverage blockchain technology to ensure unbiased search results and censorship-resistance content curated by the community. Presearch also offers search choice and active personalisation, meaning each user controls their own experience. Built with the user and community in mind, Presearch has the potential to go mainstream and is already being added by Google as a default option for Android devices in Europe.
