Ways to invest in Holochain

The first thing you should be aware of if you want to own Holochain outright is that you need to sign up to a crypto broker or exchange. They work slightly differently, though their application is similar, and they are the only two online services that allow you to buy, sell and trade your very own HOT coins. 

However, there are other options besides simply holding coins yourself. This includes things like ETFs that own Holochain or investing in a mutual fund with an altcoin focus. We outline these options below and provide links where appropriate to help reinforce your Holochain investing knowledge.

What is Holochain?

In development since 2016, Holochain is a framework for building applications without the need for any host server. It works like a torrent because apps are hosted locally by individual computers. Anyone who provides their computer as a host or donates storage is rewarded with Holochain. The main Holochain network has not yet launched, so for now, HOT tokens are the platform’s in-house currency. In the future, they will be replaced by the HOLO token.
