How to deposit USDT to OKX using your bank card
1) Before you buy $WIFI, you will need to deposit USDT.
What is USDT?
USDT or Tether is a cryptocurrency designed in such a way that the price of one USDT is always equal to $1. It’s like having digital dollars that you can use to buy other cryptocurrencies or trade on exchanges including OKX.
2) Select how much you’d like to purchase, and press Continue.
3) To get USDT you have two options:
Buy using P2P Express directly from verified sellers
Buy using Third Party provider.
4) In this example, we will buy USDT using P2P Express. Out of all options, in our case, Payoneer offers the best price per USDT.
5) Preview the order details and press Confirm Order
6) You will have 10 minutes to make the payment before your order is cancelled. Check the details again and press Continue.
7) Follow the steps on the screen one by one. Once the payment is sent, press the Payment completed button.
8) Confirm the payment one more time. If you made the payment correctly, the purchased USDT will be transferred to your account within a few minutes.
Congratulations on buying USDT! In the next part you will learn how you can buy $WIFI using USDT.
Buying $WIFI using the OKX spot trading panel
To buy $WIFI we will need to activate the Pro mode.
1) Please go to the OKX account dashboard by pressing the button with 9 dots in the upper-left corner.
2) Press the Switch to Pro button to get access to Spot trading.
In spot trading, you buy a stock or a cryptocurrency with your own money and wait for it to rise in value. Other ways to trade are when you buy or sell something for a future price or date, or when you borrow money to trade more than you have. Spot trading is safer and easier than other ways to trade, but it also makes less money and takes more time.
3) Right now, your funds (USDT that we purchased earlier) are located in the Funding account. Before we can start trading, let’s move your funds to your Trading account in the Assets menu.
4) In the Assets menu select Trading to view your Trading account balance. Press Transfer to transfer your USDT from the Funding account to the Trading account**.**
5) Choose that you want to transfer your funds from Funding to Trading. Select USDT in the Crypto field and the Amount of USDT you wish to transfer and press Confirm.
6) Now that we have money in our Trading account, we can finally buy $WIFI. To do this, let's go to the Trade menu.
7) You will see the Trading menu. First of all, we need to choose a WIFI / USDT trading pair.
8) Here you can select how much you’d like to pay for 1 $WIFI, and how much $WIFI you’d like to purchase. In our case, we are spending 50 USDT to purchase 830 $WIFI tokens. To place the buying order, press the Buy WIFI button.
9) Your order will appear in the Orders section below. Usually, it takes several minutes to find a seller and complete the $WIFI purchase. You will receive a notification from the OKX App once the purchase is complete.
