What’s The Best Exchange To Buy BTC, Altcoins — And EUM?

There are hundreds of cryptocurrency exchanges out there. Picking the best one largely depends on how you intend to use it.

If you’re looking to buy your first Bitcoin, you likely want a platform with a simple interface that makes you feel comfortable. Whereas if you’re hoping to trade altcoins, aspects like coverage, reputation, and liquidity may be more important. 

In this article, we’ll run through the best options taking several contexts into account. If you’re still not sure, feel free to message us on Telegram for more advice.

Best Place To Buy Bitcoin

If Bitcoin is all that interests you, choose Coinbase

It’s a US-based exchange trusted by millions of global customers. And it’s done so well it could soon go public.

Coinbase has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to buy, store, and sell mainstream cryptocurrencies (including Bitcoin, Ether, Ripple, and Stellar) with a digital wallet available on both iOS and Android.

Coinbase is as secure as they come. It has high trading volumes and reasonable fees, with funds covered by Coinbase insurance. You can also buy Bitcoin using your local currency, making it extremely beginner-friendly.

Best Place To Buy Altcoins

If you want to trade more than Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple, check Binance

It’s arguably more popular than Coinbase, certainly amongst crypto-enthusiasts (it’s frequently ranked as one of the top exchanges worldwide).

Binance’s reputation is the best in the business. Its security is top-drawer. And it offers most of the top cryptocurrencies around (but it doesn’t include many of the most exciting up-and-coming cryptos).

Still, the 0.1% trading fees (that are 50% cheaper if you pay them in BNB) means it’s an exchange you’ll want to use. If you’re new to crypto, Binance could be intimidating as you can only trade using other cryptocurrencies. 

But once you’re over that hurdle, it’s a first-rate exchange that’s available worldwide.

Best Places To Buy EUM

If you’re looking to buy EUM, you’ve got several options.


First up is Bitmart: the global digital asset trading platform that offers a comparable service to Binance.

It has offices across the world and includes an array of trading pairs with below-average trading fees. You can use the exchange to trade EUM against both BTC and ETH, making it an excellent option for those who like the choice.

Better still, you can get rewards between trades for holding EUM in your BitMart wallet, all thanks to BitMart staking.

STEX is an Estonia-based exchange that holds licenses in its local jurisdiction. It’s known for its impressive coverage of altcoin trading pairs via a secure, speedy, and stable platform.

You can deposit funds into STEX using Visa, Mastercard, and other well-known payment methods. Plus, it accepts SEPA payments for withdrawals, which makes it incredibly popular amongst European users.

Trading fees range between 0.05% – 0.1%, which is below the industry average — while it’s quick and easy to register an account.

FatBTC is based in Hong Kong and is a favorite of the Asian market. 

That said, it’s available in several languages and jurisdictions, so traders worldwide like to use the exchange (although it’s not accessible to those in the United States).

Trading fees of 0.2% make FatBTC slightly more expensive than its counterparts, although if you pay them in its native cryptocurrency, just like Binance, it becomes a very cheap platform to use.

FatBTC lets you trade the EUM/USDT pair, giving you a price-stable investment solution for those who’d rather not store funds in BTC or ETH.
