How To Buy¶
GoByte can be purchased and sold in several ways, each with different advantages and disadvantages. The following options are available:
- Exchanges are one of the most popular ways to trade cryptocurrency. A wide range of exchanges exist, each offering slightly different features. Some serve different markets, some are in direct competition, some have cheaper fees, and some are subject to more or less strict regulatory requirements. Most exchanges are centralized, meaning they are operated by a single company, which may be obliged by the laws of the jurisdiction in which it operates to collect data on its customers. Others are decentralized, but as a result have higher escrow requirements since you are dealing peer-to-peer instead of with a trusted entity. Exchanges can be broadly broken down into two categories: exchanges which accept national currency (fiat money) and exchanges which deal in cryptocurrencies only. For safety, exchanges should not be used as wallets. Exchanges are for trading, not for savings.
- Instant exchanges perform a similar function to normal exchanges, but without the requirement to log in. They effectively convert one currency to another, with some limits on the amount to be exchanged and usually at a less advantageous rate. Others may even offer to sell cryptocurrency as a credit card purchase.
- Over the counter exchanges have recently appeared to facilitate sale of GoByte directly from a company to the individual at a specified price, or peer-to-peer between individuals at a negotiated price. Volume may be limited compared to exchanges, but these services are usually much easier to use. More advanced peer-to-peer sites offer escrow services for a fee to prevent cheating during the sale between two parties who have never met.
- ATMs accepting card and cash payments in return for crypto are widely available. Mapping services can show the specific location of these machines, or you can even set one up at your own business and earn a percentage of sales.

Cryptocurrency exchanges exist to convert national currency, also known as fiat money, into cryptocurrency. Many exchanges do not accept fiat money, and exchange between various cryptocurrencies only. Trades are handled on markets, and trades are created between pairs of currencies, identified by their ticker codes. GoByte is widely accepted on exchanges and many pairs exist against both fiat money and cryptocurrency. This means it is possible to exchange EUR for GBX, or GBX for BTC, for example. The volume traded on an exchange provides a good indication of how quickly a buy or sell order you place will be filled. This section introduces some of the most popular exchanges for trading GoByte.
