Learn How to Exchange Litecoin into Thai Baht
Would you like to see how I exchange Litecoin into Thai Baht (THB) and have the money transferred directly in my Thai bank account because this will be useful for you if you live in Thailand and want an alternative to Bitcoin or PayPal?
In my previous post I showed you a step by step on how to register for BX.in.th, the Thai cryptocurrency exchange that I am now using to transfer money from my country or cryptocurrency I have on different wallets.
If you are still not registered with BX.in.th, would you please use my referral link to register https://bx.in.th/ref/428Ht5/ because I will get 15% on all trading fees that you pay to them, at no additional cost to you? It is free to join BX.in.th.

Learn How to Exchange Litecoin into Thai Baht
The purpose of this tutorial is to offer you an alternative to Bitcoin, which has very high fees and takes a long time to send and receive.
I have a Coinbase account, which has my French bank account connected to it, I could connect a Credit card as well, but I haven't done that. Coinbase supports Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH) and soon Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
So, in order to send money to Thailand using Coinbase, you can use Litecoin and Ethereum. For this tutorial I used Litecoin, fees are cheap and it's very fast.
Maybe you already have your Litecoin in Coinbase, or you can use your country's connected bank account to buy Litecoin that you then send to BX.in.th. If you have another Litecoin wallet online or on your computer this will work the same, and if someone has to send you money, you can give them directly your BX.in.th Litecoin address.
If you don't have a Coinbase account and need one, would you use this link http://pantika.us/coinbase so you and me will get $10 in Bitcoin when you buy or sell $100 in Bitcoin?
Let's get started!
How to send Litcoin from Coinbase to BX.in.th
In order to receive Litcoin on BX.in.th you first need to be verified and have a Thai bank account approved as well. Read my first post if these steps are not completed: How To Exchange 10 Altcoins Into Thai Baht?
You have to login in BX.in.th and locate your Litecoin address first.
Click the "My Funds" tab and click "Deposit." You can scroll down or select "LTC Litecoin" in the menu.
Copy the deposit Litecoin address like you would do for Bitcoin.
That's the LTC address you will send your Litecoin to.
Now, go to Coinbase, or another Litecoin wallet to send your Litcoin.
Go to the Litcoin wallet and click "Send."
Enter the Litecoin address you just copied from BX.in.th in the "Recipient" field.
I sent 100 Euro, which is 0.46879 LTC from the Litceoin wallet. Notice that the network fee is only 0.19 Euro!
Coinbase will summarize your transaction, ask for your 2FA code and when you click "Send" you will get this confirmation.
Coinbase also send an email to confirm your transaction. If you use another Litecoin wallet I believe this will a similar process, just use the BX.in.th Litecoin address the same as the recipient of the transfer.
Now, let's see what's happening on BX.in.th.
Almost immediately, you will see that your Litecoin is being received, but you need 4 confirmations before it's there.
It will take about 15 minutes for your Litecoin to arrive and you will see it in different ways.
In the balances.
As a notification.
Under the "Transaction" tab.
How to exchange your Litcoin into Thai Baht
Now that you have received your LTC in your Litecoin wallet on BX.in.th, this is how to exchange it to Thai Baht (THB).
The first step is to go to the "Trading" tab and click on the "THB Markets."
Click on the Litecoin market and create a "Sell" order.
Click on the small "All" link to sell all your Litecoin, and select, "Limit Order."
If you chose "Market Order" it will change at the best rate for you.
Look at the buy orders and click on the best price, this will populate the price per LTC and give you a value in Thai Baht.
Enter your 2FA code and click "Create Order."
You will have to confirm.
Click "Yes, Confirm Order."
The trade is almost instantaneous and you will receive an email when it's done, as well as a notification on the dashboard.
Under the "Transactions" tab, you can see the details like how many trades it took to exchange all your LTC and fees.
Go to the "Balances" tab and you will see that you have now Thai Baht (THB).
How to withdraw your Thai Baht to your Bank account
This is the last step and then your money will be in your bank account. It is relatively fast for BX.in.th to confirm your transfer and send the money to your bank, but depending on your bank it will take several hours to show in your account.
For this example I used my UOB bank account and the money showed up 24 hours later, the next day. On my second withdrawal, that I will show in my next tutorial, I used my Bangkok Bank account and the money showed up the same day, five hours later.
On the "Balances" tab, click on "Options" and then "Withdraw."
You will see this page and you can also go directly to it if you click "Withdraw" in the menu.
Select the amount you want to withdraw and your Bank account, it will show the small network fee and the final amount you will receive.
Enter your 2FA code and click "Withdraw."
Then you will see the transaction pending.
You have to check your email and click the link in the message they sent. This is an extra step to make sure you have initiated the withdraw, not someone else.
You will then see that it is processing.
It's in the notifications as well.
When the transfer is done, around 15 minutes later, you will receive an email.
You can also see the status "Completed" under the "Withdrawal History."
I received my Thai Baht (THB) in my UOB account the next day, 24 hours later.
Bangkok Bank is much faster and you will have to see how long your bank is taking to credit you the money.
