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).
You can do this in a number of ways, by taking part in the accelerator or purchasing directly from the market using ApeSwap.
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.
