What will I need to buy Quantstamp?
To create an account on any cryptocurrency exchange you will need an email address. Some exchanges may also ask for a phone number and photo ID, so it's a good idea to have those ready.
An increasing number of cryptocurrency exchanges will ask to verify your identity before you can deposit funds and start trading Quantstamp.
- This process is known as Know Your Customer (KYC) and usually requires photo ID and a webcam or smartphone. You may also need to prove your address by uploading a copy of a recent bank statement or utility bill.
- Some exchanges allow you to deposit and trade cryptocurrencies without passing KYC, but they will not allow you to transfer local currency from your bank account. So if you are planning on purchasing QSP with your local currency then you will need to pass KYC.
- Once you have verified your identity, it is a good idea to enable 2-factor authentication (2FA) before depositing any funds. This will increase the security of your account and help keep your funds safe.
What is the easiest way to buy Quantstamp?
The easiest way to buy QSP is by placing an 'instant buy' order to purchase it for a fixed price but not all crypto exchanges offer this feature.
Alternatively, you can open a trade on the spot market which allows you to set your own price – this is the most common way to purchase cryptocurrency. Using the instant buy feature is straightforward but typically more expensive than using the spot market.
Before buying QSP, you may want to check the market conditions. To help you decide if now is the right time to buy, you can take a look at our Analysis tools to get an idea of how the price of Quantstamp has been performing recently.
Best Quantstamp wallets to store your QSP
You can keep your QSP 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 learn more about wallets and compare them with our comprehensive guide.
Is Quantstamp a good investment?
Cryptocurrencies are complex and speculative, so you’ll need to be fully aware of all the risks involved before buying any cryptocurrency. If you’re thinking of purchasing QSP, make sure you consider the following factors first:
- Market competition. Smart contract development and auditing is a very common goal for companies within the blockchain sector, as smart contracts are seen as the key to advancing crypto-tech mainstream. For starters, QSP's protocol is open source and can easily be appropriated by competitors. Other players in smart contract security include Etherblue and Hacken.
- Risk of failure. Quantstamp's software, and the success of the company, is predicated on identifying weaknesses and insecurities within smart contracts. If a contract they audited were hacked or exposed, it would have a massive impact on trust and desire for the Quantstamp software. This would negatively affect the price of QSP tokens.
- Use-case. Quantstamp tokens are essential to pay for Quantstamp’s verification services, and any user who wants a smart contract verified will need to pay QSP. QSP is also used to reward those who provide verification, as software developers receive QSP for contributing software that verifies Solidity programs, while people who run Quantstamp validation nodes get QSP tokens in return. Finally, those who find bugs in smart contracts are rewarded in QSP.
