How can I buy LBC with a credit card?

« Back to FAQ

On lbry.tv and the Desktop app, you can purchase LBC directly with a credit card through MoonPay via an integrated buying process. Once the purchase is complete, the LBC is deposited into your wallet.

Some users/regions may require additional verification, potentially via government ID, by MoonPay in order to complete their purchase.

Please see these MoonPay FAQs for more information about using their services:

Who can use MoonPay?

What are the daily and monthly limits?

Note: Currently, this service may not be available in all countries. LBRY will continue working on expanding availability.
