How to access Binance.com from the US
A short and simple introduction on how to access Binance.com from the US.
Are you one of the thousands that lost access to your funds on Binance before the restrictions were implemented? Do you just wish to day trade coins that are not on other exchanges? Or do you simply want to quickly buy some crypto and instantly withdraw to your wallet? Well this guide is for all of you.
Step 1: Find a solid VPN
The first thing you need is a VPN. A VPN hides your IP address by letting the network redirect it through a specially configured remote server run by a VPN host. This means that if you surf online with a VPN, the VPN server becomes the source of your data, wherever it may be located in the world. In essence this means that if this VPN is hosted in a country in Europe, the exchange will experience that you sit in this country, even though you really sit in the US.
There are several VPN’s to choose from, but this is the one I have ended up using on a regular basis, even outside of cryptotrading. It is stable and very intuitive, and the phone app is by far the best one i have ever tried. I’m personally not changing provider anytime soon
Step 2: Signup for Binance.com
Activate whichever VPN you have chosen or already were using, and create an account on Binance.com using the below link. This link will give you a 10% lifetime trading fee discount when trading on Binance.
Binance.com is one of the biggest crypto exchanges there is and at the same time one of the cheapest with regard to trading fees. Also it contains several activities you can occupy yourself with in order to further grow your portfolio, such as staking and saving.
Step 3: Fund your Binance account
Step 4: Start investing/trading
You are now ready to start trading and/or investing into cryptocurrencies on Binance.com from the US. I suggest you consider transferring the crypto you buy as long term investments onto your personal wallets where they cannot be touched by anyone but yourself. Your wallet your coins!
This is not advise for anyone to circumvent or break the rules/laws/ToS of your country or the exchange, it is merely information on how some people choose to access blocked exchanges as US citizens. Accessing blocked exchnages through VPN as an American may be against the Exchange ToS and may result in loss of funds.
