SimpleSwap exchange intends to make your experience with cryptocurrency convenient. With our service, you don’t have to worry about swapping your crypto for various assets, including the most famous fiat, such as EUR and USD. In case you would like to exchange, buy or sell KSM, you are welcome to SimpleSwap.

Kusama was created in 2019 to provide an opportunity for developers to test their Polkadot projects before releasing them. Official Polkadot upgrades also go through testing on Kusama before going live. It becomes possible because Kusama reflects the main features of Polkadot, including two types of chains: the main one and parachains.

KSM is a native Kusama token. It is used for governance and payments between parachains. It can be staked in exchange for rewards.
