To use Particl Marketplace and enjoy its privacy features, you need the PART coin. It can be purchased or exchanged using cryptocurrency exchanges and various online services.
While cryptocurrency exchanges are mostly regulated and privately held companies out for a profit, they are the most common way to obtain coins. In some cases, owning Bitcoin is a prerequisite to purchasing PART.
