Once you have deposited funds into your account, you are eligible to buy, sell, and trade on our platform. You can watch this quick video posted on Twitter or read the instructions below.

Exchanging a Currency:

Go to your dashboard and click on the Buy/Sell tab on the top navigation bar.

You can click on either the "Buy" or "Sell" tab. See the screenshot below for the labels:

#1 - For example, you want to Buy BTC using ETH, click on the "BUY" tab
#2 - Select Bitcoin from the currency list
#3 - Select Ethereum under "Paying with"
#4 - Type in the amount of BTC you want to purchase using ETH
#5 - Check how much ETH it will cost you. The fees, rates, and the summary of the trade will be displayed on the right side of your page

We encourage you to review the summary to check the exchange rates of your trade. In case you don't find the rates favourable for you as they are based on the order book from the Advanced View, you may limit orders on the Advanced View instead. After you've reviewed the summary, you can then click on "Buy Bitcoin" button located below the summary on the right to finalize the trade.

Keep in mind the currency exchange rates are not fixed and fluctuate throughout the day. The figures shown in the screenshots above are the values at that period of time and your values might be different. The best way to check the exchange rate is the Rates section in your dashboard which shows current currency exchange rate as well as historic prices which can be sorted by time period.

Alternatively, you may also use the Advanced View to sell or buy cryptocurrencies. See our fees page here.

Limiting orders - you have the option to limit orders, which allows you to set both your own price (exchange rate) and the amount you want to buy or sell; however, this could take some time depending on the orders on the queue and the rate you've set on your order as it will go through the bids and will only be fulfilled once a user sells or buys a rate that matches yours.

Scaled orders - You can use this feature to execute a trade in multiple orders at your desired rates, number of orders, and sizes, thus, speeds up the matching of orders.

Amount Variance - this is the % difference in the amount/size of each order
Price Variance - this is the % difference in the rate of each order
Total Amount - refers to the number of coins you wants to sell
Order Count - the number of orders that you want to execute
Price Lower - refers to the lowest price of the order
Price Upper - refers to the highest price of the order

Feel free to play around the scaled order feature by clicking on the "Preview" button before you execute the orders.
