Binance is constantly reviewing and adding cryptocurrencies that can be used on the Binance platform. If you would like to buy Apex, which is currently not listed on Binance, you can follow the step-by-step guide below. It will show you how to buy Apex by connecting your crypto wallet to a decentralized exchange (DEX) using your Binance account to buy the base currency.
Download a Crypto Wallet
A crypto wallet is a tool that allows users to interact with blockchain networks where you can send, receive and store your crypto currencies. Go to the official website of the Apex to check the supported crypto wallet. If you are using a desktop computer, you can download Google Chrome and the wallet Chrome extension. If you prefer using your mobile phone, you can download the wallet via Google Play or iOS App Store if it’s available. Make sure that you are downloading the official Chrome extension or mobile app by visiting the crypto wallet’s website.
Set up your crypto wallet
Register and set up the crypto wallet via the wallet’s Google Chrome extension or via the mobile app you downloaded in Step 1. You may refer to the wallet’s support page for reference. Make sure to keep your seed phrase safe, and take note of your wallet address. You will be using it later on Steps 4 and 6.
Buy NEO as Your Base Currency
Once your wallet is setup, you can login to your binance account and proceed to the Buy & Sell crypto webpage to buy the NEO. If you are not an existing user, you can refer to our How to Buy NEO guide on registering and buying your first cryptocurrency on Binance.
Send NEO From Binance to Your Crypto Wallet
Once you buy your NEO, go to your Binance wallet section and look for the NEO you purchased. Click on withdraw and fill up the required information. Set the network to NEO, provide your wallet address and the amount you want to transfer. Click the withdraw button and wait for your NEO to appear in your crypto wallet.

Choose a Decentralized Exchange (DEX)
There are several DEXs to choose from; you just have to make sure the wallet you selected in Step 2 is supported by the exchange.
Connect Your Wallet
Connect your crypto wallet to the DEX you want to use by using your wallet address from Step 2.
Trade Your NEO With the Coin You Want to Get
Select your NEO as the payment and select the Apex as the coin you want to acquire.
If Apex Doesn’t Appear, Find its Smart Contract
If the coin you want does not appear on the DEX, you can refer to Layer 1’s block explorer and find the smart contract address. You can then copy and paste it into your selected DEX. Beware of scams and make sure you got the official contract address.
Apply the Swap
Once you are done with the previous steps, you can click on the Swap button.
