How to legally obtain NANO in WA State USA? How do people from Washington get NANO legally?

I have been researching cryptocurrencies the past couple days and am interested in getting some NANO. (currently I don't have any). I am pretty new to it all, (I just have a little bit of crypto on Coinbase that I got from watching videos on there). Coinbase doesn't have a NANO trading pair and I live in Washington State which seems to be banned by all the other exchanges I have looked at. So basically, how can I legally get any NANO? Is there a crypto-only exchange that trades NANO somewhere I can use that doesn't have to comply with any USD regulations or something?
There are about 7 million people who live in WA State, and we have Seattle and Amazon and a lot of tech companies like Microsoft, so there has Got to be some people out there from Washington that know how to get NANO right?
I wanted to put some of my birthday money towards investing in it, but it seems like such a pain in the ass just to be able to buy a few bucks worth! Anyone from Washington who is legally compliant, able to help me out here?

I have Coinbase, I just need a way to get NANO from here without breaking the law!

Hey there!

I can't provide you with the full picture of availability in your state but it looks to me like Washington State is supported by both Moonpay and Simplex - which are common gateways for USD and are implemented by lots of exchanges and services.

Recommend you take a look into these and decide if they are what you are looking for,

All the best!

According to this link

Moonpay says only non US residents can purchase NANO.

Apparently US residents can only purchase the following cryptocurrencies on MoonPay:

0x (ZRX)
Basic Attention Token (BAT)
Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Chainlink (LINK)
Dai (DAI)
Ethereum (ETH)
Litecoin (LTC)
OMG Network (OMG)
Paxos Standard (PAX)
Stellar (XLM)
Tether (ERC-20) (USDT)

NANO is not in the list. :pensive:

Simplex doesn't do SWIFT bank transfers...only SEPA.

Okay. I have successfully acquired a little bit of NANO. I used and it worked. Hopefully this helps someone.

If you want to show your appreciation for this information, I would be most thankful!
