Dear friends, we continue to acquaint you with the cryptocurrency exchanges. Today we will speak about BTC-Alpha, which was opened in 2016. This trading floor allows users to exchange both cryptocurrency and fiat money. Since it has a simple and intuitive interface, you will easily understand how to use its trading instruments, charts, and other functions. BTC-Alpha supports two languages — English and Russian. The main currency pair is BTC/USD. The exchange allows you to withdraw any cryptocurrencies to the digital wallet but you cannot send your funds to the credit cards or do it by bank transfer. You can withdraw as many funds as you want; BTC-Alpha doesn’t set any withdrawal limits. If you want to withdraw fiats, note that the exchange allows traders to withdraw only US dollars.
