If you already own crypto currency or have an account on a preferred site like Coinbase then please proceed to STEP 3.

 

KuCoin


If you have decided that you will be using KuCoin as your exchange please follow the video and steps to fund your account. *IMPORTANT* Be sure you purchase “Tether USDT” as that will be your base currency Mythril will trade with.

In order for you to trade you must have funds in the “Trading Account” as thats where Mythril/Wunderbit will be trading from. If there are no funds in this account no trades will open.
