As cryptocurrency grew in popularity, so did the exchanges. With over 500 to choose from (and that number is growing weekly!) its a far cry from the earlier days of digital currency when your choices in exchanges were limited to around 8!
With that knowledge, we have compiled a list of some of the most reliable and popular exchanges out there to help you choose the best one for you. Every exchange varies in attributes; some support specific coins, some charge higher fees than others, some are more suitable for beginners with a simplified user-interface, and some simply can be location dependent. It is recommended you do your research before joining an exchange so as to ensure you trust the platform with your coins. All the exchanges we list here are verified and popular, but always take your time before committing to any platform in the crypto space.
A common rule of thumb is to never store your coins on an exchange. Exchanges – being online – are at high risk for hacking and coins left on the exchange can be subject to thievery! So invest in a wallet to keep your coins safe. To help you choose one of those we compiled our favorite wallets list here.
But first, we need to get you some cryptocurrency! and to do that you need to find a good exchange. Read on to find out about our favorite ones.
