How to buy sUSD (SUSD) in the UK

Learn how to buy sUSD (SUSD) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy sUSD in the UK

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

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

When deciding on whether to invest in sUSD, there are a few factors to consider that may impact the price:
  • Accessibility. Newcomers to cryptocurrency may be dissuaded from investment by the relative difficulty of buying sUSD. You cannot purchase this token using fiat currency and it is not available on most major exchanges. To purchase sUSD, you must first purchase another crypto coin (ETH or SNX). Not only can this be intimidating, it also means extra transactions and, therefore, extra transaction fees.
  • Use case. Typically, investors wouldn’t purchase stablecoins like sUSD with a view to its price rising. If the token is performing correctly, its value shouldn’t deviate more than 1 cent from $1 USD. Stablecoins have a number of other appealing features, including as a bridge between traditional finance and crypto, a stable value during periods of high volatility, and staking/liquidity rewards.
  • Competition. Stablecoins are continuing to be developed regularly, as the demand for DeFi platforms and associated tokens grows. Though stablecoins often have different purposes, there are still a number of synthetic coins that track the price of USD. Comparing the benefits of sUSD to competitors (like Tether and USDC) will help give you a more rounded perspective on the coin. .
