HBAR is the native token of the Hedera network. It is used to pay transaction fees, similar to ETH on the Ethereum network. HBAR can be obtained through various methods:

Centralized Exchanges

HBAR is available on many exchanges, including Binance, Coinbase, KuCoin, and MEXC. A full list of exchanges that support HBAR can be found here: CoinMarketCap.

Fiat-to-Crypto Gateways

HBAR can be purchased using various payment methods such as credit/debit cards, bank transfers, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. These transactions can be conducted in your bank account's local currency through fiat-to-crypto gateways like MoonPay or Banxa. You can access these services either directly on their websites or via the HashPack wallet.

Discord Faucet

The SaucerSwap Discord server offers a faucet bot that dispenses small amounts of HBAR.

Here's how to get started:

  1. Open Discord and navigate to the SaucerSwap server.

  2. Follow the Wickbot prompts to verify your Discord account.

  3. After verification, navigate to the faucet bot channel and enter !sparechange <YOUR_ACCOUNT_ID>. Use either your Hedera account ID (e.g., 0.0.123456) or your EVM address from MetaMask (e.g., 0x1D66f32F...5d716DdC).

  4. Your account will be funded with a one-time allotment of $0.275 worth of HBAR.

The main goal of the faucet is to provide you with a minimal amount of HBAR. You should use this HBAR to cover the network fees for swapping any tokens you may have - such as tokens bridged through Hashport - for more HBAR. The newly acquired HBAR can then be used to pay network fees on subsequent transactions.
