It is one of the favorite choice for traders because of its user-friendly interface and its high security level. As a result of its popularity, is has been included in the top 10 of CoinMarketCap’s new ranking.
Since Bitcoin’s genesis block was mined on January 3, 2009, the crypto world has evolved significantly. With the emergence of an almost endless list of cryptocurrencies, there are more than 4,000 of them, investors realized they were actually a very profitable way to make money with very little effort. But, how could they invest in this new type of asset? The answer is crypto exchanges, which offer users the possibility to buy, store or sell them.
YoBit, which was founded back in 2014 in Panama by a group of crypto enthusiasts and developers from all over the world, has been operating for around 6 years now allowing its users to trade Bitcoin as well as a wide range of other cryptocurrencies. The exchange was established in a closed jurisdiction, which helps to protect users’ funds. In particular, its official address is YoBiCrypto Corp. 0801-3254, Panama City, Plaza 2000 Tower, Calle 50, Panama.
Users from all over the world, both beginners and more experienced traders, opt to trade their crypto assets on YoBit for its simplicity, security and for being one of the most powerful platforms in the market.
One of the reasons why this cryptocurrency exchange attracts so many users is that it allows the direct purchase of cryptocurrencies via fiat money, meaning that traders do not have to waste their time trying to find a way to convert their fiat money into cryptos somewhere else. If you want to trade cryptocurrencies on YoBit, you only need some fiat money available and know the assets where you want to invest it in.
Keep your Identity Safe While Trading on YoBit
Many users fear their identity could be leaked as a result of an attack or disclosed to any third parties, which is not surprising if we consider this is something that unfortunately happens pretty frequently. However, users trading on YoBit have nothing to worry about as they can trade keeping their anonymity.
Unlike many other cryptocurrency trading platforms that make their users go through a very strict KYC (Know-Your-Customer) process before trading, YoBit simplifies the process by allowing traders to start placing their orders without the need to complete this tedious process, which means they can trade without disclosing their identity to the exchange.
In addition, there is one more reason why traders should feel safe while using the platform - YoBit has never been hacked, which clearly shows how effective its security measures are.
