Web3 wallets can have their own token, too. Brillion’s $DUA powers an internal economy where Brillionaires will be able to use it for things like in-app transactions, proving their online identity, and receiving rewards.

… So If you’re new to using Brillion as your go-to web3 wallet, it’s probably a good idea to fund it with some $DUA — maybe even stake some. Let’s see how we can do that:

Where do you get $DUA? On a crypto exchange. You can take both the decentralized and the centralized route to purchase $DUA. The token is currently available on the Uniswap decentralized exchange (DEX) and on Coinstore and MEXC if you prefer to use centralized exchanges (CEXes).

Should you get $DUA on a DEX or a CEX? The truth is that, for immediate purposes, there’s not much of a difference. It all depends on what’s more convenient for you at any point in time. Many people prefer DEXes because they’re a more decentralized and web3-native approach where you don’t have to transfer your funds to an external account (self-custody). CEXes, however, are usually faster and cheaper.

What do you need to get $DUA? Regardless of which route you take, to get $DUA you’ll need to make sure that you already own crypto, specifically $USDT or $ETH for DEXes. If you don’t own any $USDT or $ETH, the same steps below apply to getting either via the trading pair that’s relevant to you.

All set? Now let’s dive into getting $DUA on Uniswap, Coinstore, or MEXC.

Get $DUA Token on Uniswap

Uniswap is what people think about when they think about DEXes because it’s one of the most liquid DEXes in web3. Having liquidity means that getting and trading $DUA is easy on Uniswap because there’s always a large amount of tokens available to quickly buy and sell on the exchange.

To get $DUA on Uniswap, all you have to do is:

  1. Go to the Uniswap web3 application and connect your browser wallet that holds $USDT.
  2. Select $ETH or $USDT on the You pay field of the application.
  3. Select $DUA on the You receive field of the application. (It’s always a good idea to copy and paste the smart contract address for security purposes.)
  4. Enter the amount of $ETH or $USDT that you wish to use.
  5. Click Swap and sign with your web3 wallet.
  6. Wait for confirmation times to receive $DUA directly in your wallet.

Get $DUA Token on Coinstore

Coinstore is a CEX that counts with a $360 million trading volume and a bid-ask spread below 2% at the time of this post. Its robust infrastructure and fast trading times make it a market leader in Asia.

If you already have a Coinstore account, all you have to do to get $DUA is:

  1. Go to Coinstore and confirm your account is funded with $USDT in the Spot tab of the Assets page. If not, you can make a deposit to your account’s specific $USDT address. (Make sure you’re on the right chain!)
  2. After that, go to the Trade dropdown menu in the navigation bar and select Spot trading.
  3. Select the DUA<>USDT market from the hamburger bar on the upper left corner and choose between placing a Limit Order or a Market trade.
  4. Enter the amount of $DUA you’d like to purchase or scroll across the percentage bar.
  5. Click Buy Dua and then Confirm. This is a CEX which means your $DUA should be available in your account’s address almost instantly, as soon as the order is filled.
  6. Now proceed to withdraw your funds from the account and send them to your Brillion wallet by going to the Transfer page back in your Assets and following the instructions.

Get $DUA Token on MEXC

MEXC has a $1.5 billion trading volume and is currently one of the leading CEXes in the space. These volumes are spread across a wide variety of assets via over 2,800 token pairs, including DUA <> USDT.

If you already have a MEXC account, all you have to do to get $DUA is:

  1. Just like Coinstore, go to MEXC and confirm your account is funded with $USDT. If not, you can make a deposit to your account’s specific $USDT address.
  2. Next, we can look for the DUA <> USDT market in the Search field at the top.
  3. Once there we select Spot trading and enter the desired amount.
  4. Click Buy DUA.
  5. Go to your MEXC account’s Wallet at the top, check your Spot funds and confirm that you now have $DUA.
