If you are new to Elacity and Elastos more broadly, you will need some ELA to mint and trade. Gas fees are cheap, costing less than 1c per transaction on Elastos.
We recommend first heading over to our Discord and asking our community for help. In most cases, we will send some ELA to your wallet to help you get started. You can otherwise buy ELA on Uniswap here and then bridge to Elastos using the Glide platform here.
Any questions or help you need please ask via our Discord.
