In our example, we purchase BTC with CNY. 

In the case of CNY, the block trading page of OKEx only lists the offers with the minimum purchase amount of 100,000 CNY. For VND and INR, the minimum purchase amounts are 30 million VND and 30 million INR.

Finally, confirm your transaction details and click Buy BTC to proceed.
