It is highly recommended to familiarize coin's basic characteristics on one of the following services before converting coins:

Convert coins via Console


Open the Console, go to the Convert tab and choose one of the next exchange options:

  • Sell coins - in this case, you can indicate the exact number of coins for sale and choose a coin for a commission payment.
  • Sell all coins - in this case, you can sell all the coins by clicking one button so that commission is automatically charged on the number of coins sold, and all remaining coins are exchanged. It’s useful if you do not want "Crumbs" to remain in your wallet.
  • Buy coins - a mode for accurately indicating the number of coins purchased. Similar to the first mode. It is useful if you need to buy only a certain number of coins, for example, to make a payment for some service.

In any of the modes you have to:

  • Choose a coin for sale from the list available in your wallet
  • Write coins Ticker. It is better to copy it from the above services, otherwise, if you make a mistake in writing, you will get a completely different coin
  • Enter the amount of the purchase/sale of coins
