There are two main ways to buy PRE:
1. Direct from Presearch via https://marketplace.presearch.org
2. From third-parties via external markets as listed here: https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/presearch
In this post, we’ll talk about the options, benefits and drawbacks of each method.
Buy Direct from Presearch
1. There are fewer steps involved
2. There are additional payment methods available, including wire transfer and credit card via Skrill
3. You are buying direct from the project, so the source is more trusted
Pricing of PRE tokens on the Presearch Marketplace is based on the reported CoinMarketCap price for PRE, plus an additional 10–25% to account for the ‘slippage’ that occurs with market pricing.
This mark up is charged to account for the lack of PRE currently available for sale at the reported price to purchase larger quantities of tokens. If you compare the total purchase price for say 25,000 PRE, you’ll likely find that the price is similar, even with the mark up.
How to Purchase directly from Presearch
To buy PRE direct from Presearch, visit https://marketplace.presearch.org and click the green ‘Buy Tokens’ button.
On the next screen, enter the number of tokens you wish to purchase, or the amount you’d like to spend by typing the quantity where the corresponding numbers are, depending on which payment method you’d like to use (Bitcoin, Ethereum or USD).
Choose your payment method with the blue button representing the currency you’d like to use.
If you’d like to pay with USD, you have two main options
- Wire transfer (better for larger purchases, as the wire fees can be from $30–50 USD)
- Skrill (better for small purchases, and for those looking to pay with their credit card)
The next step is to enter your contact information:
Then review and confirm your purchase details:
You will then be provided with a payment address (if paying with Bitcoin or Ethereum) or instructions (if paying with USD).

Buy Peer-to-Peer from Third Parties
If you are looking for the absolute best price for PRE, you can buy from other existing token holders via third-party exchanges.
This method is best for experienced cryptocurrency enthusiasts who already own Bitcoin, Ethereum or Tether and prefer to buy and receive possession of their PRE instantly.
You can monitor prices and venues on CoinGecko using this link:
If you buy from an external exchange or peer-to-peer, or if you are holding your tokens on an external blockchain wallet and intend to use your PRE for keyword staking, or node staking, you’ll need to deposit your PRE tokens back into the Presearch portal.
