Where and How Do I Purchase Axion?
How to get started
Axion is a standard ERC-20 token on the Polygon blockchain. It is not yet on any major exchanges, so it must be purchased either in our accelerator or from the market using ApeSwap. It can be stored in any EVM compatible wallet, but Metamask is required to interact with our staking platform. The token contract address is: 0x839f1a22a59eaaf26c85958712ab32f80fea23d9
Axion is a token on the Polygon blockchain, and you will need a wallet in order to purchase and store it.
To purchase Axion, you will need a MetaMask wallet in order to store it. Please read our tutorial here on setting up your first wallet and how to keep it safe.
In order to purchase Axion, you first need to have some MATIC in your wallet. If you need MATIC, you can purchase MATIC from a centralized exchange like Coinbase, Binance, or Crypto.com; know as a (CEX), or from a Decentralized exchange (DEX) like ApeSwap or Sushiswap by trading another token from it. You will need to send this Matic to the Polygon network using any supported chain bridges or the official Polygon Bridge. You can send MATIC directly to the Polygon nework using crypto.com or Counbase among many others.
Now you have a wallet and some MATIC; you are ready to buy Axion (AXN).
Now you've managed to purchase some Axion, what can you do with it?
You can keep it 'liquid' by leaving it in your wallet, or you can 'stake' it. By staking it, you you are able to earn additional $AXN over time.
By staking, you lock up your AXN for a selected period of time, up to a maximum of 15.2 years. Over that time, you will earn 8% annual interest, plus daily wBTC rewards from the accelerator which you can withdraw at any time. At the end of your stake period, you can withdraw the principal and interest in one lump sum.
