Where to buy and sell Ethereum in 2019

October 22, 2019   Ethereum

Ethereum (ETH) is the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, and it held this position for quite a long time, now. It is also considered by many to be the second most important cryptocurrency ever to be developed.

The coin also saw an excellent price increase back in 2017, when it rose from $8 to more than $1,400 within a single year. While this price seems pretty far away from its price in 2019, Ethereum has definitely displayed a lot of potential, and a coin doesn't get to be the second-largest cryptocurrency for years with no reason.

So, those interested in buying it, selling it, trading it, investing in it, and doing pretty much anything with it need to find a good exchange to do it. Here are some of the best ones in 2019.

1. Coinbase

If you are new to the crypto industry, and you have access to Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange — you have everything you need to start trading ETH. Coinbase is generally seen as an excellent choice for new investors due to its easy user interface, a large focus on security, and the ability to simply connect your bank account to your Coinbase account, which allows for easy deposits and withdrawals.

Coinbase is also very regulatory compliant, which is what made it one of the most popular crypto exchanges in the world, as well as one of the biggest ones. It does only offer a handful of coins available for trading, but Ethereum is among them, just waiting to be bought.

2. ChangeNOW

If you already hold another cryptocurrency and you want a user-friendly exchange that allows you to exchange your coins for Ethereum, then ChangeNOW is probably your best choice. This exchange offers more than 170 coin swaps, which includes numerous trading pairs of Ethereum, but also many other cryptocurrencies that were created on its network.

As mentioned, the exchange is very user-friendly, with an extremely simple interface, and no limit on swaps. This means that you can exchange as much of your coin for Ethereum as you want. This is not a good exchange for those who are looking to buy ETH with fiat money, as it doesn't support purchasing ETH with credit cards or VISA. However, if you simply wish to exchange other coins for ETH, it is the best place to do it simply.

3. Binance

Binance is one of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchanges, as well as one of the most popular ones. It has a huge ecosystem that has grown even more in 2019, thanks to many successful projects that the exchange has pulled off. Binance also offers numerous trading pairs, and it is one of the best places to trade cryptocurrencies, or simply buy Ethereum.

However, it should be noted that Binance is generally considered to be an exchange for advanced traders. It offers a lot of options, trading and analysis tools, and more, which might be overwhelming and too complicated for those with no previous trading experience. It also doesn't operate with fiat currencies, meaning that it is not a good exchange to start at, especially if you were planning to buy coins with your credit card. If you know your way about crypto, however, then Binance is likely to be one of your favorite places to trade.

4. Kraken

Finally, we have Kraken — another very popular exchange with quite high liquidity where you can go to trade your coins for Ethereum, buy it with fiat currencies, or sell it to get fiat. Kraken is a San Francisco-based exchange, and it was founded in 2011, which makes it one of the oldest exchanges in the industry. It has numerous partners, investors, and supporters, as well as strong security that makes it a very safe choice.

As mentioned, it supports numerous fiat currencies, it features low fees for Ethereum, and it supports margin trading, which makes it stand out even more.
