I learned about EGLD through a 2nd connection on Linkedin. I did some reading, and decided I'd like to invest.
I am located in the US, and the only option recommended by elrond.com for me was Moonpay. Alas, Moonpay would not allow me to purchase EGLD - some error about not allowing the purchase for buyers in US, or using USD.
Today I purchased EGLD through BINANCE.US
I thought it was worth suggesting that the official elrond site point to a website where Americans can actually purchase EGLD. It certainly would have made my life easier, and I suspect it'd lead to more investors.
