Get Funds on your Wallet

Avalanche Tokens (AVAX)

For transacting on the Avalanche Blockchain you need it's native Token AVAX to pay for transaction fees. The good thing is that transactions are rather cheap and just for covering transaction costs you won't need a lot of AVAX.
There are several possibilities how to get AVAX on your Metamask Wallet:
  • You can buy AVAX directly in your Metamask Wallet via different services with the Metamask Buy Option.
  • You can also buy AVAX directly via some exchanges:

USDC

For investing into Brokkr's portfolio the stablecoin USDC, issued by Circle, is needed.
People and businesses use USDC because it's a faster, safer, and more efficient way to send, spend and exchange money around the globe. Developers power their apps with USDC to provide anytime access to payments and financial services.
Here you can find a well sorted overview of ways how you can get to USDC:
Always remember, that the Brokkr Investment App is operating on the Avalanche network, and that you need to make sure when you withdraw USDC from any of the services listed above you need to withdraw them to your Metamask Wallet on the Avalanche network.
If you are already fully set up on Avalanche chain and have your wallet with some funds available you can also use a decentralised exchange (DEX) to swap into USDC directly on Avalanche. Follow this link to swap from AVAX to USDC:
