How to Buy TRON

TRON is a new cyrptocurrency, and is currently tradable on a number of exchanges. These include Binance, Coinnest, Coinegg, Liqui and EtherDelta. We currently DO NOT recommend trading on either Liqui or EtherDelta. We instead recommend you buy TRON on either the Binance or Coinnest (Korea only) exchanges. Our favorite is Binance, as they have the highest volume, the lowest 0.1% trading fees, fun trading competitions with great prizes, and easy to set up accounts.

To buy TRON, follow these simple steps:

  1. Ensure that you have some Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH) to use to purchase TRON. Binance does not accept fiat currency deposits. If you need BTC or ETH, read our quick guide to buying cryptocurrencies with Bitcoin or Ethereum.
  2. If you do not already have one, open a new account with Binance. It is free and easy to setup. On Binance, click the Create Account link to get started. If you like, read our full Binance review.
  3. (OPTIONAL) After opening your account, setup Two-factor Authorization (2FA) to add another layer of security. You can skip this step if you want to buy TRX immediately, but we highly recommend setting it up afterwards to better secure your account.
  4. After successfully confirming your account via the email you receive from Binance, log in with your account details, and navigate to the Funds > Deposits Withdrawals menu option.
  5. On this page, click the Deposit link for either BTC or ETH and copy the Deposit Address that is shown. Note that is very important that you select the correct currency deposit address. Be careful to not send BTC to your ETH deposit address for example. We recommend using ETH currently since confirmation times are much faster (meaning your ETH will be ready to be used to purchase TRX more quickly than a BTC deposit).
  6. Utilizing your wallet or exchange where you hold BTC or ETH, request a withdrawal or transfer to the Binance deposit address you just copied. Double-check the address before sending!
  7. Wait for the deposit to be confirmed. You can monitor the status in the Funds>History menu tab. For ETH deposits, assuming there are no issues with the Ethereum network, they will typically be confirmed in 10-15 minutes. For BTC, the wait can be considerably longer currently!
  8. Once confirmed, navigate to the Exchange>Basic, enter TRX into the search box on the top right and click either the small BTC or ETH button as appropriate. This will display the TRX/BTC or TRX/ETH trading pair. Click the pair. If you like, also click the star icon next to the TRX/BTC or TRX/ETH pair to mark it as a Favorite for easy access in the future.
  9. You will now see the trading view for either TRX/BTC or TRX/ETH. Look for the Buy TRX box that is below the chart of recent trade activity. Enter in the price you would like to pay, and the number of TRX you would like to purchase and click the green Buy TRX button. Your trade will now be placed. Depending on the price you set it may be fulfilled immediately, or it may take some time if you set a price lower than the market.
  10. Once your trade has completed, you can find the details under the Orders>Trade History menu option, showing the exact number of TRX you have purchased and their price in BTC or ETH. Congratulations, you are now the proud owner of TRON tokens!

How to Safely Store TRON

TRON is an ERC20 token, and thus can be stored on any Ethereum-friendly wallet that supports ERC20 tokens. We recommend MyEtherWallet for a browser-based wallet to store ERC20 tokens such as TRX. However, we very strongly recommend that you purchase and utilize a hardware wallet such as the Ledger Nano S, which greatly improves your security and reduces the chance that your tokens can be stolen or lost through human error. The Ledger Nano S is easy to set up, supports all ERC20 tokens such as TRX, and makes managing your holdings quite simple while giving you great peace of mind. Be sure to only purchase the Ledger Nano S directly from Ledger. Do not purchase from Amazon, eBay or another reseller, since it is possible the security of the device could be compromised before you even receive it. Purchasing directly from Ledger ensures that nobody has accessed your device other than you.
