On CEX.IO you can easily buy, sell, and trade top cryptocurrencies using multiple trading tools. This is a quick overview of what you can do once you register on the platform.
Buy/Sell Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies
You can quickly buy crypto for USD, EUR, GBP, or RUB on the Instant Buy/Sell page. Just choose the amount of crypto you want to buy and select a precalculated pack — or enter a custom amount. Then provide your debit/credit card information or use your available CEX.IO balance and confirm the purchase. The amount of crypto you’ve bought will be on your CEX.IO balance in seconds.
To increase account security, we strongly recommend enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) via the Google Authenticator app. Alternatively, you can set up 2FA via SMS. Check out your security status and manage your security preferences in the Profile tab.
To trade cryptocurrency by placing market and limit orders, visit the Trade page. Here you can also analyze price changes on real-time charts, check the market depth, view all currency pairs, and see the order book.
Deposit and withdraw funds
On the Finance page, you can check out your current balance, make deposits and withdrawals, and track your payments and trading history. To find your wallet address, click on the Deposit button near the respective currency.
Depending on your account verification level, you’ll have different options for deposits and withdrawals. Currently, we support:
- Visa/Mastercard debit/credit cards
- International (SWITF) and domestic bank transfers (SEPA, ACH, Faster Payments)
You can also fund your balance or withdraw funds using cryptocurrency.
On the Limits and Commissions page, you can find your account limits, including available account upgrades, limits for deposits and withdrawals, payment options, and commissions.
Link a payment card
To make deposits and withdrawals to/from your debit/credit card, link it in the card manager by entering your card information. Once your card has been verified and linked to your profile, you can quickly deposit and withdraw fiat funds.
You can add several cards to your profile and manage them whenever you want. With the PCI DSS certificate obtained by CEX.IO, we guarantee that all card information is safe. Check out our guide on how to add a payment card.
Once you register on CEX.IO, you’ll have an Intro account type and can start trading with a total account limit of $500. If you want to increase your limit, you’ll need to pass Identity verification, during which we’ll ask you to provide us with some personal information and supporting documents according to our AML/KYC Policy. To make things even easier, we’ve created a detailed guide on how to complete Identity verification. The process is designed to be simple and intuitive; however, if you do face any issues, our professional support team is ready to help 24/7.
Download the CEX.IO mobile app
You’ll find some awesome and unique features for crypto trading like price notifications, Instant Sell options with immediate card top-up, order notifications, and instant exchange with support for fiat-to-fiat conversions.
Set up API keys
If you prefer automated trading, you can use CEX.IO APIs (REST, WebSocket, FIX). To generate your API key and secret, go to Profile → API. Once the key is generated, you’ll need to confirm activation with your 2FA code. You can find a detailed guide on how to set up the API key in our Help Center.
Participate in staking
Deposit or buy a staking coin and earn rewards for storing those coins on your CEX.IO balance. Your rewards will be calculated every hour, and you can trade your staking currencies or withdraw them at any time. At the end of the staking period, your earnings will automatically be credited to your CEX.IO balance. By participating in staking, you can increase your annual income by nearly 20% (the staking reward varies depending on the currency).
