Finding  Bitcoin and Altcoin Exchanges

Finding cryptocurrency exchanges is not that simple and straight forward. This is because many of the exchanges to buy bitcoin and alt coins are rather recently online. This means that they have had little time to get the word out about their services and products. There are of course some long established and popular exchanges however. If you are looking for certain features, like a European based exchange, being able to transfer money via SEPA or via direct payment from your bank account the options become limited and difficult to spot.

In my own search for a first list of options I found this website / blog given a
solid overview of the available exchanges. Do scroll down from the initial list and find more exchanges listed.

Best Bitcoin Exchange (Top 40+ Listing)

“…First thing to consider when looking for the top bitcoin exchange is how safe are the website and server. This boils down to asking: is it a trustworthy exchange providing transparent data of coins in cold storage (more on this later) and are customers happy? It’s also good to lookout for which currency pairs are available: are you looking to trade bitcoin for USD, EUR, or other fiat currencies. The location usually gives an idea of what’s on offer. However, the largest bitcoin sites usually have many options for buying bitcoin with government issued currency and altcoins.

Furthering that you can simply buy as a CFD through brokerage platforms.
