Obtaining cUSD/cEUR/cREAL/CELO
To take part in our Celo Savings Pools, you will need some cUSD, as well as a small amount of CELO to pay for transaction fees. At the time of writing, 0.01 CELO is sufficient.

How to obtain cUSD/cEUR/cREAL on Celo

Different options
  1. 1.
    Buy, or mint, directly on Celo via a third-party
    There are multiple service providers that offer the possibility to directly buy Celo network stablecoins into your wallet. For example:
    Make sure to select the 'Celo Network'. Most often you can pay by either a Bank Transfer (e.g. SEPA deposit) or a debit or credit card.
    ⚠️ These are external services - not related to the GoodGhosting project! You will most likely be required to verify your identity and pay a fee for using their service. We'd like to make clear that this is NOT an endorsement or recommendation of any type. ⚠️
  2. 2.
    Withdraw from a centralized exchange
    cUSD is listed on several exchanges worldwide, such as KuCoin, Huobi, Bittrex and Okcoin. See the full list here. You should be able to withdraw the cUSD into your own personal wallet. cEUR and cREAL are yet only available on a handful of centralized exchanges.
    ​
  3. 3.
    Bridge tokens from Polygon/Ethereum/Solana/... to Celo πŸŒ‰ and swap into cUSD.
    If you already hold digital tokens on Polygon, Ethereum, Solana or other chains, you can move them to Celo.
    You can use the official Wormhole (preferred) or Optics bridges. Alternatively, you can use the O3 Swap bridge to go directly from USDC on Polygon, to cUSD on Celo.
    Supported assets for O3 Swap: USDC on Polygon, Arbitrum, Gnosis, Fantom, BNB, Avalanche, Optimism, Cube and Metis. Supported assets for Optics:
    Ethereum -> Celo: USDC (US Dollar Coin), WBTC (Wrapped Bitcoin), wETH (Wrapped Ether)
    Polygon -> Celo: USDC
    Solana -> Celo: USDC, SOL and others
    After bridging you will often have to swap the bridged token into cUSD. And then swap the bridged assets through Mobius, Uniswap or CeloTracker. See next option.
  4. 4.
    Swap on a decentralized exchange on Celo πŸ”„
    If you already hold other assets on Celo (e.g. CELO or cUSDC or cETH or pUDSC or another token), you can use the Mobius, Uniswap, CeloTracker or Mobius exchanges to easily swap them for cUSD. You will need a very small amount of CELO to pay for the (negligible) transaction costs.

CELO is listed on several exchanges worldwide, such as Binance, Coinbase, KuCoin, Bittrex, Huobi, Gate.io, Upbit and Okcoin. See the full list. You should be able to withdraw the CELO into your own personal wallet.

Use a Gas Station

Tools like https://o3swap.com/gas-station can be used to swap an asset on Polygon, for CELO tokens on Celo. This will get you the gas required to pay transaction fees on the Celo chain. This way you can bypass centralized exchanges.
