Go to Coinbase and create an account
Go to coinbase.com and create an account if you don’t already have one. This process takes about a minute, and all you need is your email address and a password. Make sure to use a real email and not a disposable one. This is how you will be sent your password if you ever forget it. Don’t lose this email, or they can’t send it to you! I’ve made this mistake before and it was very frustrating.
If you click this link you can get a free $10 in bitcoin after you buy $100.
TIP: You don’t have to put money in the bank account. As long as you are buying something at least once every few months with the coinbase wallet, your account is ‘active’. This is important because it allows the option of buying crypto instantly with a debit card.
Click on “Buy/Sell” and select the Apecoin/BTC pair
Now that you have selected the right pair, you will see a screen like this. The top left corner shows you the market rate of APE/BTC and the chart below it shows you the price trends over time. In this example, I’ve already placed an order, which is marked by a green ‘Buy’ button. I’m going to buy 100 Apecoins for approximately 0.0036 BTC. This is obviously a way of increasing my holdings, since the price is currently very low (I made an educated guess that it was going to decline). As soon as the order is filled, you will see it. If you want to check your order history, click on “Refresh” in the top right corner.
Now, to actually start buying Apecoins, click that ‘Buy’ button! It’ll now turn into a green ‘Buy/Sell’ button. Click it and you’ll see a screen like this:
Enter the amount of apecoin you want to buy and click “Buy”
Now you have to actually place the order. In this example, I’m going to buy 19 APE. The price of 1 APE is 0,00058 BTC. To place the order, click “Buy” and then enter your desired amount in BTC in the text box and click “Buy”. This is what my order looks like: https://i.imgur.com/J3q8oyI.png
You must note the “withdrawal address” before you click “Buy” or the transaction will fail and you will lose your BTC. My withdrawal address is: 1Bv7VuZ9qQGTooN4mLAe1noAnWjcEZNTFJ
This is how it looks like on block explorer: https://blockchain.info/address/1Bv7VuZ9qQGTooN4mLAe1noAnWjcEZNTFJ
Note: the order number is given on the right side of “Your Bitcoin Wallet”, it is not visible in the screenshot.
After a few minutes your order will be completed. The status will change from “Buy” to “Sell”. Now you have to withdraw your apecoins to your wallet. Click on “Status” and then on “Withdraw”. The status of the withdrawal is “Pending”. The transaction will be sent to the network after the network has accepted it. You will receive a notification in your email with a link to your withdrawal details:
Your apecoins will be deposited into your Coinbase wallet
Coinbase will send you an email when your Apecoins have been deposited into your account. The bitcoin network takes some time to confirm the transaction, so it can take a while before you see your APE in your account. It usually takes around 10 minutes. The email notification that your order has been placed will tell you when it has been completed. If you have any questions about the process, leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to answer.
What to Expect after Coinbase Deposits Your Apecoins
After your apecoins have been deposited into your Coinbase wallet, you can expect the following:
You will receive an email stating that your apecoins have been deposited into your “Coinbase Wallet”. The email will include a unique link that you can use to check the amount of apecoins you have in your Wallet. After following the link in the email, you will see a page that reads “Your apecoins have been added to your account”, where you can then click on the blue button with a plus icon to see your apecoin wallet address.
To withdraw your coins, go to “Wallets” and click on “Apecoin”. Select your desired withdrawal method and enter the amount of coins you want to withdraw
Now that your APE have been deposited into your account, you will want to withdraw them. Click on “wallets” and select the correct coin. In this case, it’s APE. Then click on “Withdraw”, enter the amount of Apecoins you want to withdraw and click “Send”. This is what my withdrawal screen looks like: Coinbase will send you an email with the confirmation of your withdrawal request. You can go to the link in that email and verify that you received your withdrawal.
APE is a cryptocurrency based on the NEM blockchain and is one of the few cryptocurrencies to offer a fully proof-of-stake (PoS) system. [edit: “fully” means as opposed to other popular PoS coins with hybrid PoW-PoS systems (like Ethereum which uses both)] Perhaps most importantly, APE allows users to stake their coins on the network and earn interest. This feature makes APE an attractive investment for those who want a passive income.
“How to buy ape coin on coinbase” : “To withdraw your coins, go to “Wallets” and click on “Apecoin”. Select your desired withdrawal method and enter the amount of coins you want to withdraw.”
APE are currently available on Coinbase, Bittrex, and CEX.io. CEX.io is a cryptocurrency exchange based in the UK. It offers INR, USD, and EUR markets for you to buy and sell your Apecoins. I have also seen images of APE available on Coinmarketcap and Coinwarz, but I’m not sure if they are referencing the exchanges listed above or if they are referring to the other exchanges that offer APE.
