Where to buy FLOW

You can buy FLOW from wallets, centralized or decentralized exchanges.

Check which services you can use based on where you live.

Centralized Exchanges

Through an exchange, you can purchase cryptocurrencies like FLOW using traditional payment methods. The exchange retains custody over your FLOW until you transfer it to a self-custody wallet.

Decentralized Exchanges

When you purchase FLOW through a decentralized exchange, you can buy directly from your peers without giving control of your funds to a centralized company.


Some wallets let you buy crypto with a debit/credit card, bank transfer or even Apple Pay. Geographical restrictions apply.

Keep your FLOW safe

Protect your FLOW in a wallet

Protecting your FLOW in a wallet instead of keeping it in an exchange gives you greater control. You’re also less likely to be a target for hackers.

Keep track of your non-custodial wallet keys

If you lose your keys, you often irrevocably lose access to your wallet. Be sure to follow your wallet’s instructions for saving your keys in a safe place.

Transfer FLOW using your wallet address

When you download a wallet it will create a public FLOW address for you. If you want to transfer FLOW from an exchange to your wallet, use your address as the destination – but remember to always double check before sending!

Always turn on 2FA

Whenever you have the option, turn on two layers of authentication to prove it’s you accessing your FLOW.

Always verify if a website is trustworthy

Double check the URL and Google service names with “scam” or “review”. Remember GitHub URLs are much easier to fake and much easier to miss – so always seek out the URL on your own, as opposed to downloading via Reddit or other third parties.
