OPCoinx is a peer to peer cryptocurrency exchange where users can buy and sell popular cryptocurrencies. The website was founded in 2014 and is operated by an incorporated company registered in the United Kingdom. The platform is available in multiple languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Russian and Japanese.

Tethers are a more recent invention, pegged to the US dollar1 and backed by cash held in reserve by the issuing company.2 It’s been used as a mechanism for withdrawing dollars from exchanges which are not dollar-backed, making it ideal for anyone wary of the value of BTC after its recent crash.

OPCoinx’s primary features include:

  • A platform for users to buy and sell bitcoins at fair market price.
  • Users can set up a trading account to use the exchange easily. There are no limits on deposits or withdrawals of any currency except for Tether USD (USDT)
  • Payments are made using Bitcoin only, so there’s no need to convert other currencies into BTC if you’re going to be using OPcoinx. At this time, USDT cannot be withdrawn from the platform—only deposited into your account.
  • No registration required
  • User accounts are protected by two-factor authentication (2FA) which must be completed for all transactions.
  • Trading fees
