Where can I purchase and trade these new cryptocurrencies?

All these tokens are available on the PDAX mobile app and will be made available on the web exchange soon.  

What do I need to trade these new cryptocurrencies?

The new coins are paired with PHPT, so you would need to convert your PHP to PHPT before trading. Conversion between PHP and PHPT is free of charge.

What is PHPT?

PHPT is the  internal utility token for the PDAX mobile app. There is no blockchain or distributed ledger technology behind it and it is used only for trading with the newly launched cryptocurrencies and to differentiate from PHP which is used for cashing in and out. 

How can I convert my PHP to PHPT?

  1. Deposit PHP to your PDAX account.
  2. Click the Trade icon at the bottom of your screen.
  3. Select the PHPT/PHP trading pair.*
  4. Enter the amount of PHPT you wish to convert. Alternatively, you may choose “Max” and the system will automatically calculate the PHPT amount for your maximum available balance. Then click Convert to proceed.
  5. Be sure to double-check your order details before tapping the Confirm button.
  6. Return to Wallet and click Recent Wallet Transactions to view your order's status.

Currently, the PHPT trading pairs and trade activities are only available through the PDAX mobile app. PHPT-related transactions are currently not viewable in the web app (trade.pdax.ph).

How do I trade with these new cryptocurrencies?

  1. Sign in to your PDAX mobile app.
  2. Make sure you have enough PHPT balance.*
  3. Tap the Trade icon at the bottom of your screen, then select the cryptocurrency you wish to buy or sell.
  4. Enter the amount of PHPT you wish to trade for the selected cryptocurrency. Alternatively, you may choose “Max” and the system will automatically calculate the PHPT amount for your maximum available balance. 
  5. Tap the Convert button.
  6. A new window will appear asking you to confirm your order. You will see the quoted price which will automatically update every 15 seconds.
  7. Click Confirm.
  8. Return to Trade and tap the clock icon at the top right to view the status of your order.

Currently, the PHPT trading pairs and trade activities are only available through the PDAX mobile app. PHPT-related transactions are currently not viewable in the web app (trade.pdax.ph).

  1. Sign in to your PDAX mobile app.
  2. Tap the Trade icon at the bottom of your screen
  3. Select the PHPT/PHP trading pair.

Why are my new cryptocurrency purchases not appearing in my portfolio?

Orders may take a minute to process and reflect in your portfolio. You can check the status of your order in Trade History.

Why can't I buy the new coins for their minimum amount in pesos?

The minimum price is based on the price multiplied by the minimum order quantity. The price of the coin may have increased, but the app has not received the updated price, causing the quote to fail.

How do I set a price when trading the new coins?

Limit orders are not yet available for these new trading pairs.

Is it possible to send the new coins held in my PDAX wallet to another PDAX wallet address?

Yes! Transferring new coins from one PDAX wallet to another is free of charge.

Please note that you may see the total amount quoted with an additional transaction fee before sending your coins to another PDAX wallet. But don't worry, the receiving PDAX wallet will still get the total amount after the transfer.

Why am I getting errors when viewing my GMT or GST wallet address?

We are aware of an issue that causes users to experience an error when viewing their GMT or GST wallet address. Please be patient while we work to resolve this. For the time being, you may view your SOL wallet address before viewing your GMT or GST wallet address.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us anytime.
