There’re currently two places to buy CST.
You can buy CST on memo.cash or on CCTip.io.
This post will take you through the process of buying and selling CST on cctip.io and on the CCTip mobile app.
What is CCTip?
CCTip means “cryptocurrency tip.
It is a cryptocurrency tipping tool that also doubles as an exchange.
You can use CCTip to tip people with different coins and tokens on Telegram, Twitter, Reddit, and Discord.
You can also use it to buy, sell or swap one cryptocurrency for another easily.
However, you must understand that it is a centralized platform.
And it’s not ideal for “storing” your coins and tokens as you don’t control the private keys.
With that said, let’s get you a CCTip account so that we can proceed with buying your first CST on the platform
How to create a CCTip account
CCTip comes in both web, mobile app and bots for the various supported platforms.
If you have a Twitter, Telegram, Discord, or Reddit account, then you already have a CCTip account.
All you have to do now is to login to the website or mobile app with any of the above-mentioned accounts.
And you will be able to buy or sell CST, swap any crypto for another, and even do yield farming by providing liquidity to the different pools on the platform.
Let’s get started already.
How to login to the CCTip website
First, go to the website cctip.io.
You will land on the above home page.
From there click on the My CCTip button at the top-right hand corner of the page.
This will take you to the next page where you can login with your Twitter, Telegram, Reddit, and Discord account.
For the purpose of this tutorial, I will be logging in with my Reddit account.
So I click on “Reddit” as in the above screenshot.
Just click that orange “Allow” button as in the above screenshot.
For the other platforms, just follow the screen prompt to login.
This will automatically log you into the CCTip website.
Your CCTip account is up and running. But we’re not done yet.
CST is paired against BCH on CCTip.io. That means that you need BCH to buy CST on CCTip.
How to deposit BCH to your CCTip account
To deposit coins to your CCTip account, go back to your dashboard by logging in again as shown previously.
Then scroll down a little and click on “deposit” in front of BCH.
Your BCH address and QR code will pop up as shown below.
Copy the address and transfer as much BCH as you want to use to buy CST to it.
And then wait for it to be confirmed and credited to your account.
Once your account is credited with your BCH deposit, it’s time to buy CST.
Buying CST on the CCTip website
The next step is to click on the “Exchange” button just below your “$$” balance from your dashboard.
And then select “Swap” from the dropdown list.
You will be taken to the below page.
The above is showing us ETH and USDT pair.
But we’re not interested in swapping ETH for USDT or vice versa.
We want to buy CST with BCH.
So, where you see ETH, click and select BCH from the dropdown list.
And where you see USDT as in the above screenshot, search for and click CST from the dropdown list.
Just enter the amount of BCH you want to spend or the amount of CST you want and click the blue “Swap” button as shown above.
Finally, click “Confirm Swap” to complete the transaction.
Congratulations, you have successfully purchased your first CST.
