Circle - Better alternative for Coinbase
Circle Invest App is the newest app in the market for buying and selling cryptocurrencies. To give a little background, Circle company is backed by Goldman Sachs and it became the first regulated crypto exchange by acquiring Poloneix Cryptocurrency exchange for $400 Million.
Key Advantages of using Circle Invest over Coinbase
(1) Offers instant deposits from bank accounts
Deposits in Coinbase takes up to 7 days. Tried depositing $100 in Circle Invest today and deposit was made available within seconds.
(2) No commissions
Coinbase charges 1.5% fees.
Disadvantages of using Circle Invest over Coinbase
(1) No withdrawal
Coinbase allows withdrawal to other wallets. Not sure if Circle Invest has plans to implement this feature in the next release
(2) Cannot buy crypto directly
Coinbase allows you to buy crypto directly without having to deposit the money in USD Wallet. But just because deposits to Circle is instant, it shouldn't be a big minus.
How Circle Invest offers no commission
First of all nobody offers anything for free. Circle invest shows a different quoted price for selling and buying when compared to other major exchange which makes up for the commission fees. Even Coinbase shows a higher price for buying but they additionally charge commission fees as well which is ridiculous.
Even with a different quote price, Circle Invest app gives you a better deal than Coinbase
