After you have set your price you can choose the amount of coins you would like to buy. The ”Sum”, ”Fee” and ”Total” fields will adjust automatically.
If your ”Total” does not exceed your available BTC amount you can click ”Buy ETN” to submit the buy order. If someone is willing to sell Electroneum with the price you offered, your trade will take place and your ”Balances” page will show the amount of Electroneum you just bought.
Note that the market price changes constantly. If your trade does not take place, you can cancel your order by going to your Account → Open Trades → Click red cross after the order you would like to cancel.
You can now withdraw your Electroneum from Cryptopia to your Electroneum wallet!
