If you select BTC/USD and click Buy, for instance, you’ll be able to buy BTC and sell USD. By choosing Sell with the same currency pair, you’ll be able to sell BTC and buy USD.

3. Choose the type of order (market or limit).

A market order allows you to buy or sell crypto at the current market rate. Such orders are filled instantly.

When placing a limit order, you specify the price at which you wish to buy or sell your crypto. Limit orders are filled when the price reaches the specified level or better.

  • To place a market buy order, select the Market tab.

Then enter the amount of fiat currency you wish to spend. You’ll see the estimated amount of BTC you’ll receive calculated automatically in the next field. Then hit Buy now. If you wish to sell BTC, choose Instant sell BTC, enter the amount you want to sell, and click Sell now.
