IOTA is pioneering a scalable distributed ledger with zero-fee transaction settlement and an innovative digital currency. This site offers realtime prices of various IOTA buying strategies and an updated overview of this remarkable coin & ledger.
The prices in the bars reflect the cost per mega iota using different ways to acquire them. Binance ETH means you're buying IOTA at Binance using ETH — which is another currency, but more on that later.
The second group of bars show some of IOTA's network stats such as the current rate of transactions being seen entering the tangle each second. Network stats are being sourced from the full node at kden.de.
If one or more (or indeed all) of the bars keep showing a "waiting" state, the underlying data source may be down or faulty. It is what it is. Come back later, email me at info@ or wait until Black Francis drops some Pixie dust yo. Word.

We monitor all established exchanges for the lowest rates and tell you where & how to get the most IOTA for your money. The IOTA buying process is best illustrated by the following graphic — showing which strategy carries the lowest price tag right now. The buttons will take you to the exchanges involved.
That's because you can't deposit USD to an IOTA exchange yet. Here's the step-by-step when buying IOTA — and you can also refer to the graphic above.
Crypto currencies are bought and sold at an exchange. For now, Bitfinex and Binance are the only major exchanges trading IOTA. They're not accepting USD or EUR deposits though, which means you have to buy IOTA using Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH).
BTC & ETH are traditional cryptocurrencies that are more readily available at exchanges that'll take your dollars. So you buy BTC or ETH at a traditional exchange and then transfer them over to your preferred IOTA exchange. Note that you may need to signup at these exchanges.
Trustless transaction settlement has the potential to revolutionize our economies. IOTA development is ongoing, but the network's been live —and its token traded— since June 2017.
Its ledger tech is leaps and bounds ahead of Bitcoin, Ethereum — in fact, anything else out there.
In an always-on world, we're in urgent need of a free, decentralized micropayment and automated contracting system. You can read more about what those are on our Crypto Currency? and IOTA Breakdown pages.
These are the current prices of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) at the major exchanges accepting USD deposits. They were last updated ago and are being sourced from Cryptocompare. All other graphs and strategies on this page use the most affordable BTC or ETH listing.
By traditional exchange, we mean any sizeable and reputed currency exchange accepting (at least) USD deposits and offering ETH trades. In order to buy IOTA, you'll first have to register an account at both a traditional exchange and an IOTA exchange. We recommend you pick the exchanges currently facilitating the best buying strategy. You can reach them through the buttons below:
The signup process at these exchanges is usually very straight-forward. Look for a register or sign up link on their homepages and follow instructions. Here are some links you may find useful at this juncture:

A lot of exchanges will ask you to verify your identity before accepting a deposit. If you opt for a wire or SEPA payment, make sure the name on your bank account matches the name you used to register at the exchange.
In order to transfer your BTC or ETH over to the IOTA exchange, you need to know which address to send it to. That's like a bank account number for crypto currencies. Each exchange will give you a bunch of unique addresses that are just for you. So when you're trying to send BTC over, you look for your BTC address at the exchange you're sending it to. They're usually found under a deposit section since we're about to instruct our traditional exchange to deposit a crypto currency to the IOTA exchange.
A local wallet is an application that allows you to log in to the IOTA network (Tangle) using your password (called a seed) so you can manage your balance and your addresses. It lets you view the tangle remotely and request transactions to be broadcasted for approval. It does not store anything on your computer. So if your laptop should get stolen or otherwise spontaneously combust, no problemo. Your iotas are safe as long as your seed is safe. Keep your in a safe place (e.g. written down) and you'll always be able to log in to the Tangle to consult & manage your balance.
