How to buy GoChain (GO)
GoChain is a blockchain project with its cryptocurrency, which was created in 2018. The project has become the highest quality in terms of scalability, capable of handling as many transactions as there are in the VISA network. It makes the project an ideal candidate for DApps.
This is how the creators of GoChain see their mission. They are going to solve fundamental problems with speed, transaction volumes, decentralization and energy consumption that all cryptocurrencies face.
GoChain developers think it’s time for a change. Their original goal is to achieve tangible improvements over Ethereum. Thus, the project aims to improve decentralization by 10 times, increase the number of transactions per second by 100 times and use 1000 times less energy for network operation.
So, GoChain is a scalable Ethereum-based blockchain. That’s why the developers of the decentralized application and smart contracts are switching from Ethereum to GoChain to increase their productivity.
You can buy GoChain using cash, debit and credit cards, or even through PayPal. However, you will have to go through several stages before doing this: purchase a more popular cryptocurrency, transfer tokens to the exchanger, and finally exchange it for GO.
