Learn how to buy Uquid Coin (UQC) in our step-by-step guide.

Where to buy Uquid Coin in the UK

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

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

Before buying UQC, there are a number of elements that can impact its viability as an investment:
  • UQUID Shop. While the eventual goal is to provide users with great, fee-less deals for products, there is still a lot of variability on the platform’s prices. For example, a $15 Australian Nintendo voucher is priced at over AUD$20 – significantly more than it would cost if purchasing directly from Nintendo.The shop’s user experience writing also has a number of grammatical and spelling flaws, which may detract from public trust and adoption.
  • Competition. UQUID are just one of many cryptocurrency developers aiming to create a seamless, cryptocurrency-based ecommerce service. That said, the ability to pay for bills in various countries is a great way to bring accessibility to those that cannot use bank accounts.
  • Development. UQUID have adapted to new, growing ventures in the blockchain space, including the ability to purchase NFTs and stake/trade on a decentralised exchange (DEX). As decentralised finance is constantly evolving, UQUID’s continued adoption of popular new crypto use cases will play a role in dictating UQC’s price.
