The exchange charges 0.25% of a trade’s profit as its fees. It charges no fees for deposits while the withdrawal fees depend upon the network transfer fee of the coin. The paper copies of the electronic records are charged at $ 10 along with $1 per page as the shipping and handling charges.
The crypto-to-crypto exchange earlier allowed payment using the Bitcoin, but from 2018, it has come to an agreement to allow the users to swap their dollars for the cryptocurrency. Therefore, it has begun to process the fiat deposits and withdrawals.
