Purchasing SOL

You can purchase SOL (the digital currency powering Solana) from a digital currency exchange like Coinbase, FTX, Kraken, Binance or Gemini. You will need to sign up with one of these exchanges directly and follow their instructions for purchasing SOL.

Transferring SOL into my Wallet

Once you have purchased SOL, you will need to transfer it into your newly created wallet to begin trading. This is where your unique wallet address will be used to identify the wallet. The different exchanges will have different methods for transferring SOL - we recommend following their instructions for safely transferring funds out of the exchange.
