I’m extremely unhappy with my first DPI experience. I clicked “Buy with Cash” at Index, read the notice that “Transak allows you to easily buy the DeFi Pulse Index,” paid about 5% in Transak fees, paid 5% in credit card fees, and paid 5% “slippage” only to find that I had purchased not DPI but ETH. I explicitly did not want to purchase ETH, and exchanging ETH for DPI is a taxable event.
Now I own ETH I did not intend to purchase, paid 15% in fees, and still do not own DPI. I understand that crypto is the wild west at the moment, but this purchase funnel is misleading at best. I see that there are more in-depth instructions about purchasing DPI on the website, but that is not an excuse for a misleading purchase funnel. This should be fixed.
