How do I purchase/earn MKR tokens?

Sorry if this is a repost, but my searching has failed me. I’m interested in learning more about how MKR is distributed and traded. I read that it is auctioned off in the whitepaper, but its kind of vague on how that works. I’ve also failed to find an exchange that lists it for trade.

Are there any guides for obtaining MKR?

The best place to buy it is on Uniswap. More liquidity there than anywhere else. It’s a trustless decentralized exchange. You trade directly with a liquidity pool and there is no counterparty.
