Frequently asked questions

Why should I choose Luno?


We're industry pioneers, having been in the cryptocurrency industry since 2013. We've facilitated more than 21 billion USD worth of transactions on our exchange for customers in over 40 countries. Today, we're trusted by more than 7 million customers around the world and have received praise for our easy-to-use app, secure wallet, and range of features.

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 focus a great deal of our resources in ensuring 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.
