How to Buy Kishu Inu (KISHU)

Step 1: Find an exchange

KISHU can be purchased on a decentralized exchange (DEX), such as Uniswap. Uniswap is a cryptocurrency-only exchange, meaning you will need to connect your digital wallet and use crypto to purchase KISHU. The KISHU ecosystem also includes a DEX called Kishu Swap, where users can purchase KISHU tokens.

Step 2: Purchase ETH to swap

To purchase KISHU, you will need to purchase Ethereum (ETH) and transfer it to your digital wallet. The ETH will be used to exchange for KISHU and to pay Ethereum network fees for the transaction. You can purchase ETH on a centralized crypto exchange, such as Coinbase or Gemini.

Step 3: Transfer ETH to digital wallet

When you purchase ETH, you will need to transfer it to your Ethereum compatible digital wallet (such as MetaMask wallet) to use with a decentralized exchange. Most exchanges allow you to withdraw your coins by inputting your digital wallet address and transferring the coins off the platform. There may be network fees to withdraw your tokens.

Always ensure that you transfer your coins to the correct wallet address and that your wallet supports the coins. If not, your funds may be lost.

Step 4: Connect digital wallet to decentralized exchange

To connect your digital wallet to a decentralized exchange (such as Uniswap or Kishu Swap), you will need to ensure that your wallet supports the Ethereum network. You will also need to have a balance of ETH tokens to pay for the network "gas fees" when purchasing KISHU on the exchange.

Step 5: Trade ETH for KISHU

When you have connected your digital wallet to the exchange, you can now execute the trade. Select the KISHU token, select the amount of ETH you want to trade, and confirm the details. When you are sure of the order details, confirm the trade, and you will purchase KISHU. You will be charged a fee paid in ETH to process the transaction.

You will now have KISHU in your digital wallet.

Is KISHU a Good Investment?

KISHU can be purchased for fractions of a penny and has a supply of coins at 100,000,000,000,000,000 in total. But is it a good investment? Though KISHU (like all cryptocurrency) is a speculative investment, here are some things to consider before investing in KISHU:
