How to buy Refereum (RFR) in the UK

Learn how to buy Refereum (RFR) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Refereum in the UK

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

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

Despite the gaming industry having huge opportunities for growth in the coming years, there are always risks attached to the projects, especially when combined with blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Here are a few key aspects you need to be mindful of before investing your funds in RFR:
  • Huge gaming industry: According to a report by Mordor Intelligence, the size of the global gaming industry is over $174 billion and is forecasted to reach $314.4 billion by 2026, putting the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) at 9.64%. This could mean that gaming tokens like RFR could take off in a big way along with the growth of the industry, especially with the integration of blockchain technology.
  • Metamask integration: The platform allows users to buy games using the native token directly through the browser. This is enabled through its integration with the widely used MetaMask Chrome plugin that makes the process quick, seamless and convenient. You can also sign your own blockchain transaction and execute the TransferToIcap() function on the platform’s smart contract to make the purchase.
  • Token utility: The token has a threefold utility. In addition to the governance function that the token serves for the platform, it can also be used to buy games on the platform. Finally, game developers can use tokens as payment to get their games featured and sponsor further user engagement on the platform.
  • Role of influencers: Since the main unique proposition that the platform brings is incentivising referrals, influencers play an important role in this ecosystem. They can use the platform to suggest relevant games for their fans and, in turn, earn rewards for the same, while the fans get access to cheaper games. This makes a win-win situation for all parties involved.
