Help! Any trusty exchange (FIAT to Crypto) who is currently accepting non US citizens but with relative low funding lets say 1000$?


#1

Help!!! I what to change FIAT to Crypto, I am not a US citizens and my country (Ukraine) is not listed in Coinbase, i find hard to find a trusted Exchange because most of the good ones are not taking new clients. Also i need a exchange with relative low funding maximum 1000$. I need any suggestion pls share your experience about fees per (buy or sell), fees and how much time take the withdrawals.

Note: i do not trust in Russian or Chinese exchanges. i will love an European or US exchange (But i cant find one who is accepting new clients ). For last resource i will consider then a Chinese exchange. Any case i need something to start. Thanks in advance

Try Coinmama or CEX.io


#3

share your experience in that exchange pls will be very helpful but thank i will do a research


#4

Kraken or Bitstamp?

Both work really well.

Fees are only really high if you use credit card I think.


#5

Both coinmama and cex are great exchanges for fiat actually… Good UIs and experience


#6

Coinfloor is a possible one as it’s uk based and peter recommends it


#7

kraken is been sued for 50 million for some clients losses in trading ethereum, Anyway kraken and bistamp are not accepting new clients.


#8

coinflor minimum funding 2500$ is too expensive for a newbie like me


#9

coinmama and cex.io from which countries are those exchanges ?


#10

Bitstamp website looks like they are accepting new customers.

And regarding Kraken, then I don’t see how that changes anything. 50 million is pocket change for a freakin’ fiat-to-crypto exchange.

They’re making so much money they literally say: “We don’t want to make anymore money right now, come back later.”

yeah a thief always start stealing penny’s.


#12

im waiting for bitstamp 3 week already and no answer kraken the same


#13

That’s really weird.

I’ve had a Bitstamp account for a long time, but before the recent dip I wanted to cash out a bit of LTC, and I tried on Bitstamp… But new phone, forgot to change 2FA, couldn’t be arsed to wait for them to reset the shit.

Made a Kraken account, and literally in the first login session, I had done everything. Moved LTC to Kraken, sold LTC to EUR, transfered around 1500 or whatever their daily max withdraw limit is, and I kid you not, the money was in my bank account in under 12 hours. I had no idea that was even possible.


#14

when you opened your kraken account?


#15

January 15th I think.


#16

thanks i will try the verification again

Coinmama is based in Slovakia but is owned by a company in Israel. Cex.io is based in London. Both accept most countries and none of them have your country as restricted so. Good to go.

I live in the bahamas and CEX.io work’s great for me :muscle:t6:

Use localbitcoins.com and do a cash deposit at a bank if possible. Or, try another method that is popular in the Ukraine on this great website, just be sure to choose a seller with plenty of transactions, and positive feedback.
