Changelly is one of the easiest methods to buy EOS. It is advisable to have other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum before using Changelly, but it is possible to convert your dollars or euros to EOS in Changelly. However, your conversion rate won't be as good as this.
Changelly works differently from most exchanges because it never contains your work. Send coins to the address and currency of your choice sent to your designated address, at the current rate. It is completely safe and is used by millions of people.
To get started, create an account on Changelly. They have a very easy registration process. Go to the Main Site page and select the input and output currency.
The input currency is the cryptocurrency that you send to the address and the output currency is the currency you want to receive. In the following example, I sent BTC and I received an EOS.
