Similar to HitBTC, this exchange supports crypto-crypto trading and has a range of altcoins available (currently 88 tradable pairs), many of which aren't available on HitBTC at the time of writing this.

Binance is a “real” bitcoin trading site. Its ICO was announced on June 2017, and phase I started on June 27 @15 hs (GMT +8). The original team was composed by Changpeng Zhao (CEO), Roger Wang (CTO), James Hofbauer (Chief Architect), Paul Jankunas (VP of Engineering), Allan Yan (Product DIrector) and Sunny Li (Operations Director).

When the operations started, the initiative was apparently based in Shanghai, but later was moved to Hong Kong where still is today. The servers, on the other hand, are hosted in the Republic of Korea and, Japan. The platform used to be available worldwide, but they decided to restrict access from Chinese IPs after their government banned ICOs.

As of December, 2017, Binance is consistently within the top 5 exchanges by trading volume on CoinMarketCap.



HitBTC is a popular crypto-crypto exchange. Compared to CEX.IO which, at the time of writing this, has 15 tradable pairs of currencies, this exchange currently has 302, allowing many smaller altcoins to be bought and traded.

This exchange has had lots of complaints recently, with many people reporting being unable to withdraw funds. But looking at many related Reddit posts, this seems to be more a combination of human error & a delay in responding to support tickets.

As a security measure, it looks like HitBTC has enabled email verification for withdrawals on many accounts. In some cases users no longer have access to these email accounts and are unable to withdraw funds or change their email address. Try contacting them on Reddit if you have issues yourself, they're fairly active. There may be other factors at play here, but we've never had any issues ourselves. If we see any legitimate proof of foul play, we'll stop promoting this exchange immediately.


This exchange has grown significantly in popularity in late 2017, offering over 1,100 trading pairs at the time of writing this, with a 24-hour trading volume of $200M.

The platform complies with the laws of New Zealand, but operates worldwide with no exceptions. Its trading volume is considerably lower than that of other exchanges, with just over 600 BTC every day (roughly 1.6 million USD).

Local media recently reported that Cryptopia launched a new cryptocurrency  (NZDT) whose price would be pegged to the New Zealand dollar (NZD). The site is known for listing many altcoins, in the order of hundreds, including some not incorporated anywhere else. The only drawback on the matter is that, due to personal views of the staff, Ethereum is not accepted.


This exchange is more useful for experienced traders, offering very high leverage for margin trading (up to 100x). Trading with leverage is very risky, so we tend to only refer this exchange when writing about margin trading, and give warnings when we do.
