How to buy and sell NEO digital tokens

As we mentioned in the previous lesson, users who have Neo tokens are getting paid with NeoGas, this happens only if they hold their NEO in a private wallet. If you buy NEO tokens and leave it in an exchange, you won’t have any Gas tokens to collect.

Here are some online exchanges where you can buy or sell Neo with Bitcoins:

Currently the only exchange with which you can purchase NEO with fiat currency is the Hitbtc.

NEO Wallets

There are three types of wallets to store your digital tokens, the paper wallets, the online wallets and the hardware wallets: 

1. Ledger Nano S


The Ledger Nano S is a hardware wallet. Your accounts are backed up on a recovery sheet and can be easily restored with compatible wallets. In order to store your Neo tokens you will have to use it in combination with the NEON wallet.

For more information see here.


2. NEO Wallet

The NEO wallet is a web wallet, allowing you to store both Neo and NeoGas tokens. It is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

NEON is a ‘light’ wallet, enabling users to interact with their currencies on the NEO blockchain  without having to store all of the data. Light wallets save a significant amount of processing space, time and money.

3. Ansy  


Ansy is a paper wallet, basically a document which you can print, with the public key and private key on it, which have the form of a QR code.

By using the QR code for the public address, the Ansy wallet allows you to send any amount of NEO to be stored. Using the private key, you can access their NEO tokens or GAS coins to spend them.

Paper wallets can be used for storing and spending NEO and GAS, but not to claim GAS generated tokens.

4. NEO tracker


The NEO Tracker wallet allows you to store, send and receive NEO and NeoGas and also to claim the GAS tokens generated from the amount of NEO you hold.

In addition, the NEO Tracker allows you to save your NEO into cold storage with the option to printing of paper wallets. It is a web-based wallet written in Javascript and an open-source project.
