How to Buy Mina Protocol (MINA)


Have you ever wanted to participate in the blockchain economy by running your own node? 

The Mina protocol was created in 2017 with the aim to allow anyone, regardless of their computing capacity, to run a blockchain node. The team launched Mina as what they call a “compressed” blockchain platform, meaning that the entire chain is about 22kb in size, taking roughly as much space on someone's computer as a couple of tweets.
