Step 4 - Obtain 3 CyBlocs#Copy URL to this article section
To get CyBlocs, you can buy your own CyBlocs, rent CyBlocs from another person, or get a CyBall scholarship.
Buying CyBlocs#Copy URL to this article section
Go to the CyBall Marketplace and connect your software wallet. CyBlocs in the CyBall Marketplace can only be listed and bought with Binance USD (BUSD), so you will need to prepare the sufficient BUSD beforehand.
Browse for CyBlocs. The NFT Marketplace has different filters for convenience such as Class, Traits, and Skills. You may use them to narrow down your search.
After deciding on which CyBloc to buy, you may click on the CyBloc to buy it.
Confirm the transaction by signing on to your wallet.
After confirming that the transaction succeeded, wait for around 2-5 minutes for the CyBloc/s to reflect on your account.
