Where to buy Near
To buy Near, the best option is to use the Binance platform. Although there are other exchanges where you can also buy Near, Binance offers the best options and the largest variety of cryptocurrencies.
If you don’t have an account with Binance, you can create one here. Now I leave you with a video, so you can see how to buy Near in the best and easiest way, step by step, so you don’t have any doubts.
Step by Step
To buy Near, the first thing you need to do is to log in to your Binance account, deposit your funds, whether it is Euro, USD or another currency.
Once you have funds in your account, go to markets, and select your currency pair against USDT (Tether).
You will then be able to buy Near. Once you choose the pair, you have to go to sell, and indicate the amount you want to exchange your currency for USDT, and then buy Near.
With the USDT purchased, you can go back to the main menu to see that you already have it in your account and the order has been executed. Go back to the market, and look for the NEAR/USDT pair, and click on it.
Here, you will see again the same buy and sell panel, where you have to go to buy, to exchange your USDT for the amount of Near you want. Once you have chosen the amount, click on buy and you will have it.
If you go back to the dashboard, you can see how much Near you have. Now, you can keep it in Binance to sell it whenever you want, or take it to a wallet for more security.
If you follow these steps, you can have NEAR in less than 5 minutes. Sign up with Binance today so you don’t miss your chance.

To finish, let’s summarize all the steps we have seen in a simpler way:
- Create your Binance account or login if you already have one.
- Deposit funds into your account (It is recommended to use a credit card to avoid waiting).
- We will use the deposited currency to get USDT (in this example, the EUR/USDT pair)
- Go back to the markets and search for NEAR, where you will find the NEAR/USDT pair.
- We will go down and buy the amount you want by clicking on BUY NEAR. Indicating the market and the amount we want to buy.
- It’s time to enjoy your new cryptocurrency.
We have already seen how to buy NEAR with Binance, but there are also other places to get this token. In case you already have an account or prefer to use another platform, this list can be of great help. To find out where you can buy NEAR, it’s as simple as going to coinmarketcap or coingecko. Here, search for the cryptocurrency, in this case NEAR. And once there, click on markets.
Thus, you can see the entire list of platforms where it is available in real time. In order not to waste your time, you can see the main platforms in the image below.
Unfortunately, this option does not currently exist. Since there is no exchange or platform to buy and sell cryptocurrency that allows deposit with PayPal.
The only platform we have been able to find is eToro, but it does not have NEAR listed yet. So we will have to wait until it is on this platform to be able to buy using PayPal.
Although keep in mind that eToro does not allow withdrawals or deposits of cryptocurrencies. Since really when you buy, you are buying an etf that tracks the price of the cryptocurrency, but you do not really have the cryptocurrency to withdraw as happens on other platforms such as Binance.
In order to sell NEAR, you will see that it is not complicated at all. You will only have to do the same steps that you already did when buying, but with the difference of going to the red sell button.
We will look for the NEAR/USDT pair, and click on it once you find it. We go to the center, below and we look at the red sell part. We indicate to the market on the top right, the amount you want to sell and exchange for USDT. Click on sell and it will be ready. We will already have the NEAR sold and we will have USDT again.
To withdraw NEAR to your wallet, you can see the following steps:
- Go to wallet and spot wallet.
- We will search for NEAR and once you find it, click on withdraw.
- Now you will see the Binance withdrawal panel
- Open your wallet and we will copy the address. Usually the NEAR network.
- It indicates the correct network where to send the tokens. In this case, the NEAR network.
- Enter the amount and check all the information.
- With everything correct, click on withdraw and confirm with the confirmation codes.
- Your NEAR tokens will be on their way to your wallet.

In case you want to withdraw your funds to another platform, for example from Binance to KuCoin, the process is the same as we have seen in the wallet, with one difference.
In the step of opening the wallet to copy the address, in this case we will have to open the platform where we want to send the tokens. Here, click on deposit, and select NEAR. Select the network you want to use to send the cryptocurrency, the most common is to use the Near network and you will see the address to copy.
With the copied address, go back to Binance and paste it. Indicate the same network as in the other platform. The other steps are the same as we have seen when withdrawing to your wallet.

If you want to have your NEARs in the safest possible way, the best way is to have them in a hardware wallet. In my case I used Ledger, and you can buy it here.
Ledger is the most used hardware wallet in the world and it will give you full control of your funds. It avoids the risk that they can hack the platform where you have your tokens, or even hack your computer and have access to your wallet. With a hardware wallet, without the physical object they will not be able to move your funds.
