How to get aUST out of Anchor?

Pre-crash, I had a lot of aUST in Anchor Protocol. If I look at my Terra Station wallet in Classic network, it’s still there. I am trying to find a way to withdraw it. I can click on the aUST and a “Send aUST” screen comes up. The problem is, it wants to charge a 0.25 UST transaction fee, and that UST has to be in my wallet, not on deposit in the form of aUST. So I have 0 UST to pay the 0.25 UST transaction fee. And I can’t figure out a way to get 0.25 UST. I don’t think it’s possible to buy UST anymore, and even if I could, how would I get it to the Classic network rather than the Mainnet network?

You can buy ustc on binance and send it to your wallet

I have a Binance acocunt, but it looks like they don’t sell USTC anymore. I can’t find anyone who does. Has anybody on here successfully purchased USTC recently, and if so from where?

You can also buy it from Kraken or KuCoin.

Thanks duncanday, I will try that.

FYI everyone, somebody named “hungmei” PMed me soon after I posted this and claimed that he is an Anchor Dev, and that I can solve all my problems by connecting my wallet to some website that’s “an official tool” to help people. He claims he can’t post this publicly because imposters might create copy links, and that only Anchor Devs can PM. I don’t believe any of it.

Update, in case this helps anyone: I was able to get my aUST to Kraken. Here’s what I did:

  1. I connected my Terra Station wallet to https://app.anchorprotocol.com. In order to do this, I had to install the mobile Terra Station wallet and use that to scan the Wallet Connect QR code in https://app.anchorprotocol.com. It was flaky and didn’t work one day, but did work the next.

  2. Once the wallet was connected, further down the My Page in https://app.anchorprotocol.com under Earn, I was able to withdraw my aUST from Earn. Then I could see my UST under “UST” at the top instead of under “Deposit”.

  3. I used the Send button at the top to send my UST to Kraken. Then in Kraken I was able to sell UST for dollars. (I wanted to actually realize the loss this year for tax purposes, rather than just have aUST/UST sitting there as unrealized losses that are never going to come back.)

The mobile wallet was essential because at various points in this process, you have to enter a password, and I didn’t have a password for my desktop Terra Station wallet. Only the mobile wallet made me set up a password.

I tried all this first with a small amount to make sure it worked, then I sent the remaining.

I hope this helps somebody.
