The fastest and easiest way to buy cryptocurrency?

Mar 10, 2021 | Community Guides

If you are new to cryptocurrency and would like to purchase your first few cryptocurrencies and don’t know where to start, then you have come to the right place.

Exchanges can be very confusing to a lot of people, although the draw is that you can trade lots of different coins for very low fees.

There are other applications and exchanges out there that are very user friendly but cost a fortune in fees.

So is there a middle-ground between the confusing exchanges and high fees? Yes, there is.

AAX is a cryptocurrency exchange that is powered by the London Stock Exchange Technology – Millennium Exchange. Making it extremely reliable and doesn’t suffer brownouts etc. not mentioning any names here…

The exchange has excellent trading volume and liquidity and the spread between buy and sell orders is very tight indeed.

If you are new to this space and just want to purchase cryptocurrency and FAST, AAX is your place.

The Fast Buy service that AAX offers is so streamlined if you can purchase something from Amazon, you will be more than capable of buying your first cryptocurrencies.

There are over 30 local currencies GBP, USD, EURO etc. that you can use to buy over 20+ cryptocurrencies.

Make sure to select your local currency to see what cryptocurrencies are available for your local currency.

This next point, I cannot stress enough. More often than not when everyone in the market is doing very well, some of the big exchanges can suffer very annoying and frustrating downtime.

What happens if you want to send your ETH from your hardware wallet to an exchange and before you do, you are met with an email saying “Temporary pause deposit and withdrawal”. 

This is no good to anyone, you MUST and I will say it again for the folks at the back MUST have another exchange you can go to.

Now, if you have been listening you will know who can offer you reliability in these situations. Yes, AAX. 10 points to you.

When you are powered by LSEG technology, you can count on it being reliable.
