How secure is Luno?
At Luno, the security of your cryptocurrency is our highest priority. We've built one of the world's most sophisticated Bitcoin security systems and have industry-leading processes in place to make sure that these are never compromised.
Do I have to buy a whole Bitcoin?
No. Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies are divisible. This means you can buy or sell any amount of Bitcoin and it doesn’t need to be a whole number – whether it’s 0.1 Bitcoin, 1.7539 Bitcoin or something else. It’s completely up to you and your budget.
How do I actually buy Bitcoin?
You can buy Bitcoin through the Instant Buy function on our app, as well as on our Exchange. After you’ve signed up with Luno, you can deposit local currency to your account and then all you need to do is follow the instructions.
