How to buy HNS

A walkthrough for purchasing HNS with Namebase.io

You will need a Namebase account to purchase HNS through Namebase.io. If you have not done so, please register here.

Buy HNS with USD

If you are a US citizen or person, the easiest way to purchase HNS will be directly with USD on Namebase, though you still have the option to purchase HNS with BTC.

Go to https://www.namebase.io/buy, click the drop down arrow next to “BUY WITH BTC”, and select "U.S. Dollars".

Click "Add a payment method", click "Continue", select your bank, and then complete your bank’s login procedures.

Input the amount of HNS you’d like to purchase, click "Buy HNS", and then confirm your order by clicking "Buy now".

If you’d like to unlink your bank account, go to your dashboard, click USD in your wallet, and click Remove.

Buy HNS with BTC

If you are outside the USA and want to purchase HNS on Namebase, you will have to first purchase Bitcoin to then transfer to your Namebase account. While there are numerous ways to purchase BTC, we show you 2 methods below.

The price your purchase settles at may be different than the current price because we confirm BTC transactions after 6 blocks (~1 hour). Additionally, large order sizes may incur price slippage that affects the final overall settlement price, depending on the liquidity available on the market. Check your dashboard periodically to confirm your HNS reception.

Coinbase BTC

If you haven’t already, first set up your Coinbase account. Once you’re set up, visit https://www.coinbase.com/price/bitcoin and buy however much Bitcoin you want to transfer to Namebase to convert into HNS. In your Coinbase Portfolio, select Bitcoin and its "Receive" tab, and then copy the receiving address of your Coinbase wallet.

Go to https://www.namebase.io/buy and enter roughly the amount of BTC you want to convert to HNS in the Step 1 section, paste the Coinbase receiving address in the Step 2 section, and then copy the address produced in Step 4 — this is your Namebase account’s receiving address where you will send the BTC in your Coinbase account to. Go back to Bitcoin in your Coinbase Portfolio and this time select the "Send" tab to paste your Namebase account’s receiving address into the “Recipient” field.
