The Best Bitcoin Exchanges of 2017 - Buy Bitcoin with Paypal, Credit Card or Debit Card!

in bitcoin-exchange •  2 years ago

Original post by @arnoldwish.

Bitcoin exchanges can be classified into three main categories:

  • Bitcoin exchanges that specializes in trading Bitcoin against fiat currencies with some limited support for other cryptocurrencies. These exchanges tend to have low trading fees and high trading volume, specially for pairs of Bitcoin against fiat currencies.
  • Cryptocurrency exchanges that specializes in trading cryptocurrencies against Bitcoin or fiat currencies. These exchanges tend to support a huge number of cryptocurrencies, they offer low trading fees and high trading volume, specially in pairs that involve Bitcoin against another Cryptocurrency,
  • Bitcoin exchanges that provide a service for Buying or Selling Bitcoin With a convenient payment methods like Paypal, Credit Card, Debit Card, etc. These exchanges provide a service for people who want to buy Bitcoin easily and instantly. So if you are looking for a way to buy Bitcoin with Paypal, or Buy Bitcoin with Credit Card, or Buy Bitcoin with Debit Card, this type of exchanges is for you.

What Are The Best Bitcoin Exchanges You Can Use In 2017 ?

The word "Best" is considered to be a subjective word in most cases, and sure it is in the case of Bitcoin exchanges.
Everyone has different criteria that should be met by the bitcoin exchange for him/her to even consider using it.
(Note that most of Bitcoin exchanges in this list can be used as a cryptocurrency exchange too.)
For Me these criteria are:

Bitcoin Exchange rate - Bitcoin Price:
In a perfect world, all exchanges should offer relatively the same price for you to buy or sell Bitcoin, but in the real world, each exchange has its order-book with Bids (Price offered by people who want to buy Bitcoin) and Asks (Price offered by people who want to sell Bitcoin).
This means that Bitcoin exchange rate may differ from one exchange to another, so when you want to sell or buy Bitcoin, choose wisely on which exchange to trade.

Trading fees:
These are the fees that you pay for when you want to buy or sell Bitcoin. These fees can vary from 0% to 0.5% in most popular exchanges. If you are a long-term investor, trading with an exchange that has 0.1% or 0.2% trading fee won't affect your investment outcome. But If you are a day trader that trades multiple times a day, this will be the difference between being in the green or in the red.

Deposit/Withdrawal fees:
These are the fees that you pay for when you want to deposit/withdraw money to/from the exchange.

Payment method:
Most exchanges use bank transfer as their method for funding your exchange account, but you can still find exchanges that offer other options to fund your account, like with Paypal, Neteller, Payza, Credit Card or a Debit Card. At the same time don't forget that deposit fees depend also on the option you use for funding your account. So, choose the exchange that offer a funding method that is cheap and most convenient for you.

Verification requirements:
If you are only trading between Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, most of the exchanges won't require more than an email verification, some exchanges won't ask more than that, even if you trade fiat money as long as you don't deposit or withdraw fiat.
On the other hand, if you are going to deposit/withdraw fiat money prepare to verify your account with an ID, Passport or Driver licence number.

Finally, here is the Bitcoin exchange list which I will update regularly to reflect any change in the future. (Currenctly this list of Bitcoin exchanges contains 39 exchanges.)

when it comes to crypto to fiat exchanges.. there are so many scam sites that never pays.. so all these list you made.. are they all safe? have you checked them and got results?

·

DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!

this is also my research.. and don't expect me to check every single exchange and experiment which is real and which is fake by making a transaction on every single site.. I already got scammed once by megachange.is

I would use Coinbase https://www.coinbase.com/join/5955358402bf5b00b597da36 (USA) to convert USD to BTC then transfer BTC out to Binance https://www.binance.com/?ref=12558281. Binance 0.1% per purchase. If you purchase BNB tokens (directly from Binance) your trading fees is 0.05% per order while Coinbase/GDAX is 0.5%.

Thanks. It's been about 4 months since my last post, so I decided to break my hiatus by a well researched post that took me close to 1 week to finish.

wow. amazing, spent a fairly long time

Such a great in depth post that is missing one of the most important exchanges, Bitsquare.io Please edit post and include.

RIP Circle.

IMHO two the best exchanges are:

  1. Bitfinex (http://bit.ly/2jeOM8V) - because of the great experience in huge troubles
  2. Bitbay (http://bit.ly/2rj3XmP) because of offering Lisk;)

Thank you, @arnoldwish. This give me a nice collection to sift through. I need to convert USD to BTC. THe fund are sitting in a US savings account at a credit union. I have a US PayPal account linked to the savings account. Whether from the savings account or the PayPal account, I need to send USDsomewhere to buy BTC. Gemini doesn't transact with my credit union and I am spooked by Coinbase and Kraken. Hopefully I can find something here that works for me nd that does nt require me to know about calls, put, options, stop orders, etc. My list, thatnks to this post, for further exploration:

it really is a complete source, gonna save it somewhere. thanks :)

Great article! I just signed up to Quadriga because of this. Been looking for a Canadian way to buy bitcoin through bank transfer / interact. And it's a much better service fee than what I was paying.

Here is my referal link for Quadriga if anyone else signs up from this post.
https://www.quadrigacx.com/?ref=qq4tpfi0o9vzl79f3bkl81o6


Another one for the list if you are in Canada is QuickBT.
https://quickbt.com/ca/

Although it only lets you buy about $100 worth of bitcoin a day, it doesn't ask for verification besides your phone number to verify your country. So it's a good way to buy annonimously.

Excellent comprehensive post. I'm surprised you don't mention huobi. I use them a lot. Verification is fast and you can be trading within 30 minutes. No trading fees and 5x leverage. 1% per day on leverage and 1% for cash withdrawal if memory serves right.

On localbitcoins.com I find that bank transfer is also safe because it is irreversible and have done many trades like that. Just check your balance online to see if the deposit has arrived. DO NOT release coins until you see the transaction in your bank account. With that caveat it is safe. Someone who does this on a weekend should not release coins until balance shows up on Monday.

With localbitcoins you can also do cash ATM deposits directly to sellers account which usually appear instantly.

Thanks for all the info. I found a few here I didn't know about an am going to check out.

I'm curious. Is there a reason Poloniex didn't make the list?

It's good to see community members helping out with these guides. I would also add that when evaluating where to get bitcoin, users should read https://howtobuybitcoin.io/ which gives a throughout walk-through for beginners. Also, bitcoin exchanges are generally grouped into three distinct groups (in my experience):

  • Credit card bitcoin exchanges which can be instant but more expensive. Coinbase (USA) or Bitstamp (Europe) are good options for this.
  • Sites to buy btc with a bank transfer (SEPA or Wire). Usually cheaper but slower to deposit. Users generally recommend Kraken with works will in North America and the EU.
  • Places to buy bitcoin with cash which sometimes allows no verification of ID and anonymity. This can be slightly slower as you may have to buy with paypal, meetup in person, or simply go to a physical bitcoin atm. LocalBitcoins is the go-to platform for this method. There's aslo Paxful.

What a comprehensive amt of information !
I like the name "Yo Bit" - I see VirWox, which looks interesting - the fact you can use paypal for yr transactions is a boon.

And the virtual currency called Linden dollars - had never heard of that before! You are truly a knowledge bank !

you had researched a lot, very complete! thanks for that

Thanks for all the work that you put into this post... Helped me out quite a bitcoin... lol

An extremely high value post..... I do not resteem as a rule... but this one definitely deserves a vote and resteem...as well as 'bookmarked'

Nice read! You can also try us, https://CoinSwitch.co. We are new a altcoin exchange platform and we provide best exchange rates, prompt customer support, and seamless transaction process.

Even you can Buy BitcoinInstantly with Debit Card

I would follow you again if I could. Thanks for sharing this informative list!

I've been looking for an article like this. Thanks! Extremely useful.

Solid post. Interesting to see I'm not the only one that is thinking about this. I strongly advice people to only buy in to cryptos that have a solid background: A solid team, product, advisors, preferably VC investors, etc. Sell all cryptos that don't have this solid background. It's a waiste of money. An interesting website I found: https://www.coincheckup.com Since I use this site I make so much less basic investment mistakes. On: https://www.coincheckup.com/coins/Bitcoin#analysis For the Bitcoin Investment analysis.

nice artical.

Thank you for the overview. well done.

Does anyone know about bitsane is that a good platform to use trusted?

Thank you for this very informative post. You have explained the differences between the exchanges very well and provided lots of options to check into. I'm bookmarking it in my browser for future reference.

Awesome work, this is really comprehensive! I notice you don't list any CFD or forex brokers here though? For anyone else who's interested in trading with a regulated broker you might want to check this guide to bitcoin trading platforms such as etoro and Plus500
