How to buy Polkadot in Canada?
It doesn't matter if you are in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary or anywhere in between, NDAX gives you all the tools and support to buy and sell Polkadot in Canada.
Why buy DOT?
Polkadot aims to solve the problems of interoperability and scalability of blockchains and uses the DOT token for maintaining and operating the network. Buying and staking DOT allows the owner to be involved in Polkadot’s governance by proposing changes and by making decisions to approve or reject changes proposed by others. Staking also provides an opportunity for rewards. Polkadot uses a variation of proof-of-stake consensus and investors who purchase and stake DOT can earn a return on their investment.
