How to Buy SAN tokens
To use the SAN token with our platform, you need to have it in a MetaMask wallet or a wallet supported by MetaMask (like Trezor or Ledger). We'll describe the three steps necessary to achieve that.
Step 1: Install and set up MetaMask
For instructions on how to install and set up MetaMask, see https://metamask.io. You will need an Ethereum address that will be used to hold SAN tokens, as well as to interact with the Santiment platform. You can either create a new wallet in MetaMask, import an already existing wallet, or connect MetaMask to a hardware wallet like Ledger or Trezor.

Step 2: Add funds to MetaMask wallet
To get SAN tokens, you will need to swap them for ETH or another ERC20 token. You may acquire ETH from a centralized exchange like Bitfinex and then transfer it to your MetaMask wallet.

Step 3: Swap ETH to SAN Tokens
You can use decentralized exchanges or decentralized exchange aggregators to swap ETH or some other ERC20 token for SAN tokens. They all work very similarly. Connect your Metamask wallet first, and then swap ETH for SAN tokens.
The SAN token is also available on Uniswap at the best rates.
San tokens are also available on Kyber via Kyber Swap. If you don’t have any crypto, you may get it on Kyber using your credit card.
The SAN token is available on Bancor. Once you connect your Metamask, you can purchase ETH on Bancor using your credit card to swap for SAN Tokens afterward.
Decentralized exchange aggregators
You can use a decentralized exchange aggregator like ParaSwap.io or 1inch.exchange to get SAN tokens. Using an aggregator could sometimes give you a lower price than using an exchange directly.

What to do next?
Now just login with a MetaMask account, which holds the SAN tokens. Alternatively, you can connect your Sanbase account with your Metamask wallet in the settings.
We'll detect the SAN you're holding and grant you access to our discounts, based on the amount of tokens you hold.
