Today I’d like to introduce you to a great service: Coinswitch
You no longer need a Bittrex account to buy or sell IOP on the exchange.
Since Bittrex still isn’t accepting new accounts, I hope this article will help the many of you who are interested in getting hold of IoP but are currently locked out of Bittrex.
What you’ll need:
- A smart device
- Minimum 0.02 BTC (on a mobile wallet is probably easiest)
- An IoP Core Wallet (or Coinomi mobile wallet)
First, go to Coinswitch
Register for a new account or login if you already have one.
After clicking the verify link in your email, you’ll need to fill out your profile page:
After completing the profile page, you’ll need to verify your phone number via SMS. Just type in your mobile phone number and press “Save”.
You’ll receive a one-time password. Enter it as shown below:
Now that you’re verified, return to the exchange site by clicking “here”.
Select “IOP” in the upper right corner:
Now fill in the amount of BTC you want to convert to IoP in the upper left corner (minimum 0.02 BTC), and click “Exchange with Bittrex”
Now fill in your IoP address from your core wallet (or your Coinomi mobile wallet address)
Now click “I agree to Terms” and then “Next”
Now send the exact amount of BTC to the address shown (in this case 0.02 BTC). A mobile wallet is probably easiest for this. Don’t set the mining fee too low.
After the transaction is spotted on the network, the site will automatically switch to this page. Be patient: your transaction needs to be confirmed by the BTC network:
Once your transaction has been confirmed twice, the exchange will start:
A few minutes later you’ll receive a message that your coins have been sent.
And you’re done! IoP via Bittrex without a Bittrex account.
