Prepare tokens

Since the majority of CEXs currently support ICP, you have complete freedom to choose where to make your ICP purchase(s). The most popular Dfinity-supported exchanges include Binance,, KuCoin, and OKEX.

Supported CEX

In the following section, I'll go into details about which exchange you should use to purchase ICP.

Prepare your ICP wallet to store tokens

It is necessary to have a non-custodial wallet after you buy tokens on CEX to store tokens and interact with DeFi. At this time, there are a number of wallets that can store ICP coins such as Plug Wallet, Stoic, and Earth Wallet.

Following these simple steps, you can store ICP and other Dfinity tokens. We take Plug Wallet as an example.

Step 1: Go to the Plug Wallet website and download the app.
Step 2: Create Wallet then select “Deposit” to receive ICP.
Step 3: Copy the wallet address or scan the QR code address and send your assets to this address

After buying ICP and having a Dfinity wallet (Dfinity), you can participate in events or skin in the game in the Dfinity Ecosystem, such as joining lending, yield farming or staking activities on this chain.

To make it easier for you to visualize, I'll walk you through the process for the two methods listed above.

Buy tokens on CEXs & withdraw to a Dfinity Wallet

To begin with, you'll need USDT or USDC stablecoins in order to purchase. US dollars (USD) or other currencies in your country can be used to buy USDT if you don't have any stablecoin yet.

Step 1: Login to the Binance Mobile App. I recommend reading this “How to use Binance'' article.

Step 2: Choose “P2P Trading” in your Binance Homepage.

Step 3: In this step, you will see:

Number 2 indicates which fiat currency you’re using to buy USDT.
Number 3 indicates which token you want to buy (e.g. USDT, BTC, BUSD, etc.).
Number 4 displays a list of sellers who will sell you USDT in exchange for your fiat currency.

After you've decided on your preferred sellers, simply follow Binance's instructions to complete the transaction (Remember to read the instructions carefully).
