BitShares Wallet - Exchange - "buy BTS" easy way


In Bitshares GUI Release v2.0.171121, New Buy Model was mentioned by @billbutler.

This is, in essence, an in-wallet API to the functionality. It's a particularly easy way to purchase BTS. It removes the complications associated with explaining how to use the exchange.

So, I tried it myself.

BitShares Exchange - Direct Exchange Service


BlockTrades is a direct exchange service for several currencies. You can simply send in the desired amount of the cryptocurrency you would like to spend, and BlockTrades transfer to your wallet an equivalent amount of the cryptocurrency you are buying. So, you do not need to manage your balance on their website.
BlockTrades market engine will search across many different cryptocurrency exchanges to find the best price for purchasing one cryptocurrency with another one.

Let's start

buy BTS

This functionality makes us easy way to purchase BTS. When you are in BitShares Wallet Exchange, click buy BTS. It will open a form to simulate SEND and RECEIVE prices. And also it will give you address and/or Memo information.

If you could not find a correct pair...

(e.g.) How to find a pair: open.STEEM x BTS
