Buying PCHAIN is very easy nowadays. If you want, you can use cash, card — even PayPal! However, you still need to follow a few steps to do this — that’s why we’ve made this tutorial easy for you! It is separated into parts — just follow the one that matches your purchase method.
What is PCHAIN (PAI)?
Plian (Previously PCHAIN) is setting out to take what they have learned through developing enterprise subchains for applications in a wide variety of fields and focus it into a highly scalable, multichain smart contract platform and decentralized finance (DeFi) toolset that satisfies all the requirements of public and enterprise DeFi while also simplifying integration.
This strategy will be accomplished by developing tools for simplifying smart contract and DApp deployment, adding on-chain oracles as well as creating novel technologies for adding programmable liquidity to further simplify integrating with Plian.

How to buy PCHAIN with credit card or debit card?
No matter what people say, it’s easy to buy PCHAIN with a credit card. Your first step will always be to buy Bitcoins or Ethereum with your credit card. They can then be converted to PCHAIN. Follow these steps: Buy Bitcoin or Ethereum on an exchange you like. Transfer Bitcoin or Ethereum to an exchange that supports PCHAIN currency. Finally, exchange Bitcoin or Ethereum for PCHAIN. Please follow our step-by-step guide below to buy PCHAIN.
1. Create a Coinbase account
Click on the ‘subscribe’ button and fill in the form. Enter your name (it has to be exactly the same as what is written on your photo ID), email, password and location. Coinbase is regulated by the US government and follows strict financial rules. As such, they need to verify your identity. It takes some time and effort, however, this makes Coinbase reputed to be the most reliable way to convert regular currency to cryptocurrency.
Verify Coinbase account
As Coinbase needs to verify your account, you must provide your phone number, upload a picture of your photo ID and verify your card (credit or debit) or account back. Only then will you be able to buy cryptocurrencies. If you use a card on Coinbase, your fees will be higher, but your purchases will be instant. It’s cheaper to use bank transfers, but it’s slow — it can take up to a week to receive your coins. When your payment details are verified, click on the ‘buy/sell’ button in the top menu.
Select ‘Ethereum’ and enter how much money you want to spend/how many coins you want to buy in the windows at the bottom of the page. Once this is done, click on the ‘Buy’ button. Now you will have to confirm your purchase. Do this by pressing the ‘Confirm purchase’ button. You now own some Ethereum. However, don’t close Coinbase just yet — we’ll use it later!
2. Open an account on an exchange that accepts PCHAIN (PAI)
Now that you have some Ethereum, you should find a place to exchange it for PAI. Here is a list of online exchanges where PAI is traded: Exchanges are listed in descending order of trading volume (i.e. how much trading takes place on these sides).
3. Transfer Ethereum from Coinbase to Exchange
After opening an account with one of the exchanges in the list above, you should find your ETH wallet address. The details for finding the address may differ depending on the website, but it’s usually easy and straightforward. Make sure you get your “deposit” or “receiver” address. Copy/note your ETH wallet address for the next step. The address (Your own unique address, of course, not the address above!)
4. Transfer Ethereum to your new wallet
Transfer Ethereum from your Coinbase account or any other account/wallet where you hold your ETH to the receiver/deposit ETH address from step #3.
5. Exchange Ethereum for PAI
When Ethereum appears on your new exchange account (it may take a few minutes), you are ready to exchange it for PAI on the new exchange. The trading process depends on the exchange but is quite similar across platforms. Generally, you will want to find the PAI/ETH trading pair and “place an order” to buy PAI with your ETH funds.
The order may work immediately — any delay is usually because the exchange is trying to find enough “sell” orders to fulfill your “buy” order. Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of a certain amount of FATHER!
