The official Sebfor Ether tool to buy Ether (Ethereum) with Bitcoins.
How does it work?
Currently there is no credible way to buy Ether directly with fiat currency. You will first have to purchase Bitcoins, and exchange your Bitcoins for Ether. Keep your eye on this page as more currencies will be added. Please read our article here on how to safely buy Bitcoin if you don’t have any yet.
If you have Bitcoins you can start right away without any registration required! Everything will be explained in slow and easy steps.
First you can either store your Ether on an exchange, such as poloniex.com or store them safely yourself. We always recommend storing the coins yourself.
Download and install one of the following Ethereum wallets to store your Ether:
- Jaxx by kryptokit
Make sure that it’s running the latest wallet version. We have a article explaining how to use the Myetherwallet that you can check out.
Start up your Bitcoin wallet and synchronize it with the Blockchain or log into the exchange where you have your Bitcoin stored.
Place the amount of Ether you would like to purchase, or the amount of BTC you want to spend in the tool.
Copy and paste your Ethereum address from your wallet. Keep in mind that if you make a mistake, such as providing an incorrect Ethereum address by accident, you will not receive your order.
Insert the amount of Ether you would like to buy, or the amount of BTC you would like to spend. Currently there is a max limit of 1 BTC worth of Ether per transaction. If you wish to order more, you will have to repeat this process.
Provide your E-mail address to receive updates on the order process. You will receive your first update immediately after you clicked the green button.
Once you have pressed the green button you will be in the final step to completing your order. Scan the QR code as shown in the picture if you have a QR scanner integrated in your Bitcoin wallet. If you do not have one, simply copy paste the address and the required amount to your Bitcoin wallet and transfer it through there.
Congratulations you have now finalized your order!
Once the transaction has been recognized on the Bitcoin network, a confirmation mail will be send out. Between 5-10 conformations will be required until the actual exchange is performed. The Ether will be automatically transfered to the address you provided.
