Cryptocurrency Exchange Coinone

Coinone is one of the major Korean cryptocurrency exchanges. If you are enthusiastic about blockchain technology, you should know a few things about them even if you don’t plan on trading with them. As you may know the trading activity on Korean exchanges has been relatively high in recent times and even determines the short term price swings.

Established local player – Coinone has been around since 2014 and the team behind this exchange looks very solid. There aren’t any reports of a major hack at this exchange, which is not the case with one of their major competitors – Bithumb.

High level of Security – Security seems to be a top priority for Coinone, as the company includes multi-signature wallets, two-factor authentication  (2FA) and cold storage. While there is no 100% guarantee of future safety, these factors are nice.

Low Fees – The costs of trading at Coinone are very competitive, with the offers by other exchanges. With a 0.10% maximum fee (which goes even lower, if you trade bigger volumes) this exchange is one of the cheapest. As a comparison, Kraken, another otherwise solid exchange charges up to 0.26%. 

Korean Bank Transfers accepted – Coinone accepts fiat currency deposits, via bank transfer. That being said, only Korean bank accounts can be registered with this exchange.

No fees on deposits – Unlike most other exchanges, this one does not charge fees on deposits (regardless of the methods of payment). Most services accepting fiat currencies charge something in the 2-10% range. 

7 coins available – The current list of coins available at Coinone includes: BTC, BCH, ETH, ETC, XRP, QTUM and LTC. This may be more than enough for some users, but there are those who are willing to explore exotic digital assets. If you are looking for more altcoins, be sure to checkout Bittrex and Cryptopia.

Leverage is available – Unlike most exchanges, Coinone  offers margin trading, with a maximum leverage ratio of 1:4. That being said this involves borrowing coins from other traders. This can be a costly and tedious process, so if you are looking to speculatively trade Bitcoin a forex broker may be a better alternative.

Trading with such a company usually allows even higher leverage, but may not be suitable for long term positions. Nice trading platform – The “Pro Charts” feature of Coinone is very nice, when compared to some of the other crypto-exchanges. Here is a preview (a live chat is also included, click to zoom-in).
