Purchase RNDR Tokens
Guide on how to purchase tokens from exchanges or from MetaMask directly using its swap function.
In order to use, earn or purchase RNDR Tokens, you need to have an ERC-20 compatible wallet that is NOT an exchange wallet (for example do not use a Coinbase Wallet).
[NOTE] Ensure that you have enough Ethereum (ETH) to cover Gas fees required for every transaction you want to execute.
After your MetaMask wallet is set up and ready to go, just copy your Ethereum wallet address to clipboard. The address looks like "0x" followed by some numbers and letters.
Clicking on your account heading will copy the address automatically
Cryptocurrency exchanges aren't too different from their physical counterparts like the NYSE. On any exchange you can Deposit and Withdraw currency at market value.

[NOTE] Due to the high usage of the Ethereum blockchain its users currently face high fees. A swap is an extensive computational use of smart contracts running on the blockchain. Therefore it is not uncommon to pay fees of two digit dollar amounts. Therefore swaps only make sense to acquire tokens using swaps if you plan to purchase starting at a certain amount compared to the fees.
Please make sure you are directing funds to your MetaMask wallet address.

Once purchased, wait for a transfer to succeed and the coins will appear on your MetaMask.
[NOTE] The Render Network has migrated to a different RNDR token contract - please check that you have the current Render Tokens (RNDR) under the current contract address: 0x6de037ef9ad2725eb40118bb1702ebb27e4aeb24
If you have RNDR tokens with a different (old) contract address - please follow our Migration Guide to convert them to Current RNDR. You will also be prompted to migrate your tokens in the RNDR interface.
With the above steps completed - you are now ready to add your RNDR tokens to your Render Network account!
Your account balances will be listed as "Credits | Tokens" in the top right
In the top right corner you will see your RNDR balances, with RNDR Credits listed first, followed by RNDR Tokens. If your RNDR Token amount is zero, you have to move some RNDR tokens from your MetaMask wallet into your Render Network account.
Just click on the balance for the deposit window to appear (you might have to allow MetaMask to connect to the website).
Once your MetaMask is connected, you will see your current MetaMask balance
Enter the needed amount and press Deposit - then confirm the transaction in your MetaMask and voila! After the transaction is approved - the balance will appear in the system.
Now you can upload scenes, create jobs and render with Render Network. For a guide on getting started as a Creator:
