So, what is Synthetix?
Synthetix is a protocol that enables the issuance of synthetic assets on the Ethereum blockchain. Synthetix supports synthetic commodities like gold and silver, synthetic cryptocurrencies, synthetic inverse cryptocurrencies, synthetic cryptocurrency indexes, and synthetic fiat currencies.
"These synthetic assets are collateralized by the Synthetix Network Token (SNX) which when locked in the contract enables the issuance of synthetic assets (Synths). This pooled collateral model enables users to perform conversions between Synths directly with the smart contract, avoiding the need for counterparties. This mechanism solves the liquidity and slippage issues experienced by DEX’s."

How to receive/deposit SNX

If you're depositing from another exchange, it is important to ensure they support sending funds to ETH contracts, or use a full ETH wallet as an intermediary.
Note: As CoinMetro uses smart contracts for Ethereum and ERC-20 token deposits, the amount of gas required is slightly higher than a typical transfer. To be sure that your transaction is successful, please set the transaction gas limit to 55,000 for ETH. The fee difference is minimal. If your gas limit is too low, the transaction will simply be rejected by the Ethereum network. There is no risk for loss of assets caused by a too low gas limit.
How to send/withdraw SNX
For all in-depth information on how to withdraw SNX from your CoinMetro account, please click here.
Important Note - To request a withdrawal, your account profile needs to be verified as well as having the funds to cover your withdrawal. The first time a withdrawal is made to a destination, the destination needs to be verified via e-mail. If you have 2-Factor Authentication enabled for withdrawals, you will be asked to input the code for each withdrawal, approved or not. We suggest enabling 2-Factor Authentication to protect your account.
Withdrawals waiting for approval can be cancelled and withdrawal status can be found by selecting the wallet on the GO! Dashboard. Approved withdrawals cannot be cancelled. If there is no Cancel button, there should be a transaction ID (TXID). This is a link to the relevant tx hash (Transaction Hash) on a blockchain explorer website.
We hope this article has given you all the information you need on buying, selling, depositing and withdrawing SNX.
