We’re delighted to share that Elrond eGold (EGLD) is now live for purchase for MoonPay customers in the US!

Elrond is a fast and secure blockchain for digital payments, distributed apps (DApps), and enterprise use cases built for the new internet economy. The network runs on minimal fees (as low as $0.001 per transaction), which are used to support security and transaction speed.

Due to regulatory reasons, Elrond purchases are available in every state except Hawaii, New York, Rhode Island, and the US Virgin Islands.

EGLD is available for purchase via MoonPay or through Maiar, a completely decentralised and non-custodial wallet. Maiar, which also allows users to store Binance (BNB), Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin (BTC), rewards EGLD through staking, delegating, or running a validator node.

MoonPay has made the buy flow significantly faster and we now offer a fixed quote, guaranteeing the amount of crypto you will receive.

We couldn’t be more excited about providing US users access to Elrond’s global digital economy!

You can buy EGLD now through MoonPay or with your Maiar wallet.
