Binance is constantly reviewing and adding cryptocurrencies that can be used on the Binance platform. If you would like to buy AstraPad, which is currently not listed on Binance, you can follow the step-by-step guide below. It will show you how to buy AstraPad by connecting your crypto wallet to a decentralized exchange (DEX) using your Binance account to buy the base currency.
Download a Phantom Wallet
There are several crypto wallets to choose from within the Solana network and Phantom appears to be the most integrated. 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. Just make sure that you are downloading the official Chrome extension and mobile app by visiting the Phantom’s website.
Set up your Phantom
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 Solana as Your Base Currency
Send Solana From Binance to Your Crypto Wallet
Once you buy your Solana, go to your Binance wallet section and look for the Solana you purchased. Click on withdraw and fill up the required information. Set the network to Solana, provide your wallet address and the amount you want to transfer. Click the withdraw button and wait for your Solana to appear in your Phantom.
