Purchasing Algorand in Canada has never been easier, thanks to platforms like Bitbuy. Bitbuy offers a fast, secure, and user-friendly way for Canadians to buy ALGO using Interac e-Transfer. In this guide, we'll walk you through each step of the process, ensuring that even beginners can confidently buy Algorand.
Before diving into the steps, let's explore why Bitbuy is the preferred platform for buying Algorand in Canada:
To get started, visit Bitbuy and click on the "Get started" button. Fill in your name, email address, and create a strong password. Make sure to verify your email by clicking the ALGO sent to your inbox.
To comply with Canadian regulations, Bitbuy requires users to complete a KYC (Know Your Customer) process. You'll need to provide identification documents (e.g., driver's license or passport) and a recent utility bill or bank statement as proof of address. The verification process is usually completed automatically but can sometimes take longer depending on your case.
To fund your Bitbuy account, select "Deposit CAD" from the dashboard. Choose Interac e-Transfer as your deposit method. Bitbuy will provide you with a receipient name and email address along with a unique security question/answer. Follow your bank's instructions to send an Interac e-Transfer using this information. Fill in these details on your banking provider’s app or site and save the recipient for future use (you only need to do this once). Make sure all the details are correct and you are ready to use Interac e-Transfer to fund your account and purchase ALGO. Deposits are typically processed instantly, and you should see your CAD in your account in no time.
After your account is funded, click on "Buy/Sell" at the top of the dashboard. Select Algorand as the cryptocurrency you'd like to purchase and enter the amount in CAD or ALGO. Review the transaction details, including the current exchange rate and fees. When you're ready, click "Buy Algorand” to complete the transaction.
Your newly purchased Algorand will be stored in your Bitbuy wallet. Your crypto is kept secure with a 90% cold storage policy and covered by a comprehensive insurance policy. However, if you wish to have self-custody of your crypto assets, you can transfer your ALGO to a personal hardware or software wallet.
