Trading & Fees

The fees that you pay on the exchange are based on a maker/taker model. I’m not personally a day trader, I personally hold my crypto for the long term and therefore my trading volume is less than 250,000 which puts me into VIP1 tier.

Therefore, if I were to place an order at the current market value (and is therefore completed immediately), I am deemed as a taker of the market as I am taking the current market price and my trading fee is 0.16%.

However, if I were to become a maker of the market and define a new price that is not immediately matched by an order on the order book. I will pay less, at 0.10%. In terms of order types, a “Taker” is a “Market” order and a “Maker” is a “Limit” order.

You can also get discounted fees by staking their CRO token with varying percentage discounts depending on your staking amount. Trading Fees

Customer Support has a pretty extensive FAQ with user manuals to get you started and a live chat inbuilt for those needing further support. Although they state that the customer support team usually replies within a few hours, this is dependent upon traffic and in my experience, this has been a lot longer. In fact one query I had when ordering my card still remains unanswered and the card has since arrived. Support Exchange Referral Program

Similar to other crypto trading platforms has a referral program to entice new traders. However, its alittle more compliate compared to the like of Gemini ($10 BTC sign-up bonus) or Binance Exchange (10% off trading fees).

By signing up to using this referral link, you will receive $50 of CRO as a sign-up bonus, as long as you also stake at least 5,000 CRO. Users who stake below 5000 CRO will receive $10 of CRO as a sign-up bonus. is not a decentralized exchange like UniSwap for example, to follow regulation you will need to undergo KYC-verification to the advanced level. Once all the steps are complete your account will be instantly credited with CRO. sign up offers Referral Code
