How to buy Polkadot (DOT) in simple clear instructions

Can anyone provide clear detailed instructions for how/where to purchase DOT and move to a Polkadot.js wallet. Can you buy DOT in the DeFi space yet or are we still stuck using exchanges? I am tired of having to repeatedly do new KYC’s for every new coin I want to buy. Would love to buy a DOT pair to exchange on Sushi, Uni, or something similar from an already KYC’ed exchange I am on.

Thanks in advance

Hey @jampyx welcome to the forum. Totally feel ya on the KYC fatigue. I don’t know of a DEX offering DOT as of yet. Well, I believe is decentralized and non-custodial, however they do collect KYC. I have had good luck with Kraken, personally. The withdrawal process to the JS interface would be a bit different depending on which exchange you go with, but generally speaking you want to triple check the withdrawal address so your DOT go where you intend for them to go. Then, send 'er off. In Kraken, withdrawals are managed under the “funding” tab. Let me know if you have other questions!
