    To view more exchanges, visit the Integrations page.

  2. Purchase tokens using your preffered exchange.

  3. Withdraw any token supported by the Terra network from your exchange. Every exchange is different. Please visit your exchange’s web page for guides on how to withdraw tokens. Use the following steps as a generic guide.

    1. To receive tokens to your wallet, use your wallet address. Your wallet address will appear at the top of the Terra station app near your wallet name. Your wallet address will look like this: terra<random-numbers-and-letters>

    2. Double-check your wallet address is correct before sending.

    3. Send the tokens from the exchange to your Terra Station wallet address.

    Waiting times for transfers

    When you transfer tokens from an exchange to Terra, some time will pass before the tokens appear in your wallet. Don’t panic. This waiting period is normal and varies depending on the exchange. If a transfer does not appear immediately, check back after some time.

Now you have tokens on Terra!
