How to Buy HEX
What is HEX?
HEX is a cryptocurrency designed on the Ethereum blockchain. It is the world’s first blockchain certificate of deposit. You can find more info by visiting hex.com.
HEX is the high-yield blockchain certificate of deposit.
CDs, known as Certificates of Deposit or Time Deposits, are worth Trillions of dollars. CDs are worth more than gold, credit card companies and cash. CDs pay higher interest than savings accounts, requiring money to be deposited for a fixed time.
Banks profit on poor customer service, early withdrawal fees and auto-renewing you at worse rates. They pay pitifully low interest. New money is printed all the time, making yours less valuable. HEX monetizes the time value of money in a totally new and better way. It takes the concept of CDs to the next level: HEX replaces inefficient currencies, banks and payment networks with verifiably secure peer-to-peer technology.
In HEX, you’re the bank. The more you learn about it, the more you’ll love it.
HEX works on the Ethereum blockchain.
Buying HEX is really quite simple. As of this writing HEX works on the Ethereum blockchain. However, because of the high Ethereum gas fees this will change to the Pulsechain blockchain in the near future. But for now, in order to own HEX we must first buy Ethereum.
