Once you’ve set up your crypto wallet, you can buy ETH from a cryptocurrency seller or exchange.
Popular exchanges include Coinbase, Gemini, and Kraken. You will likely be asked to register your personal information, enter your bank details, and verify your identity.
Tip from an Artsy Specialist: You may be subject to “Know Your Customer” checks, and transfer of funds can take 3–5 business days. We highly recommend setting up your wallet and purchasing your ETH at least 7 days in advance of the auction to give you the best chance of success.
Note: Cryptocurrency transactions are irreversible, and the value of cryptocurrencies such as ETH can fluctuate unpredictably and substantially. Artsy is not responsible for any issues that you may encounter while setting up a wallet or purchasing and maintaining cryptocurrency in general, nor for the purposes of this sale.
We encourage you to exercise caution before carrying out any transactions and when transferring funds.
