Learn how to buy Sifchain (EROWAN) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Sifchain in the UK

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

You can still purchase EROWAN 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 EROWAN using a decentralised exchange.
  1. Find EROWAN on a decentralised exchange and make sure Sifchain 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 EROWAN using an exchange like CoinJar. You will need to purchase enough ETH to swap for EROWAN 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 EROWAN 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 EROWAN 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 Sifchain 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 eROWAN, here are a few things to consider:

  • Relationship between eROWAN and ROWAN: eROWAN is the Ethereum-based equivalent of the native ROWAN token. While ROWAN exists on the Sifchain and, therefore, within the Cosmos ecosystem, eROWAN is the coin’s equivalent developed for the Ethereum blockchain. eROWAN can be swapped 1:1 for ROWAN using the protocol’s bridging mechanism. All eROWAN coins need to be converted to ROWAN to access the native cryptocurrency benefits such as staking and voting rights within the SifDAO.
  • Solving a clear problem: By focusing on interoperability Sifchain is aiming to tackle one of the key issues that plague the cryptocurrency industry. If Sifchain can execute its vision well, the project has a chance of capturing market share within the interoperability niche.
  • Competition: Although tackling a clear problem, there are several other projects looking to tackle issues faced by interoperability and the exchange of digital assets. Sifchain will need to continually innovate to stay ahead of competing protocols. Future investors should pay close attention to the integration of Sifchain with other layer-1 blockchains such as Avalanche, Polygon, and Terra.
