What is the HitBTC exchange?

Based in Hong Kong, HitBTC is one of the world’s top ten cryptocurrency exchanges, and offers some of the most diverse range of cryptocurrency tokens.

The exchange boasts of $500 million worth trades being conducted every day, and more users flock to the platform every day. The main features that attract traders to HitBTC is the intuitive and user-friendly interface, as well as the options for using more advanced features if you’re a seasoned trader. Having been around since 2013, HitBTC benefits from a lot of experience that newer exchanges perhaps lack.

How to sign up to HitBTC

In order to set up your account on HitBTC, you simply visit the official website, click on the ‘Register’ button, and fill in your email, username, and password. You’ll receive a confirmation email, and your account will be set up once you’ve clicked the link in that email.

How to deposit funds into your HitBTC account

As with some other cryptocurrency exchanges, it isn’t possible to deposit fiat money into your account. Instead, you will need to have cryptocurrency tokens in order to make a deposit.

If you don’t have any such tokens, you will be able to purchase them from other exchanges that do facilitate fiat money deposits.

With cryptocurrency tokens in hand (or wallet) you can click on the ‘Desposit’ button. You’ll then be presented with a column of different tokens, from which you select the relevant once and click ‘Fund’. This will provide you with a wallet address, which will consist of a QR code, as well as a alphanumeric code. The process only takes a short while and then your funds have been deposited.

How to trade on HitBTC

You will have two accounts on HitBTC  your main account and your trading account. In order to move funds from your main account to your trading account, go to your ‘Accounts’ page and click the arrow pointing between your two accounts. Click ‘Transfer’ and select to the appropriate amount.

Once the money is ready to use, it’s time to head over to the ‘Exchange’ screen to view your trading options. The ‘Instruments’ section will provide you with a list of potential trading pairs. Once you’ve chosen a trading pair you can pick which kind of trading order you’d like to set up. Options include trading at the current market value or when the value hits a specific amount.

HitBTC OTC Trading

Over-the-counter trading is also possible on HitBTC. This allows you to conduct high volume trades without it being recorded on the public order book. You will need to trade volumes over 100,000 USDT, however.

How to withdraw funds from your HitBTC account

Go to the ‘Accounts’ tab and select ‘Withdraw’. You’ll be presented with a column of all your available cryptocurrencies, from which you can select the appropriate one as well as the amount you’d like to withdraw. Paste in the receiving address you wish to transfer the money to, and confirm with two-factor authentication. You’ll receive a confirmation mail notifying you of the withdrawal.

Good luck and happy trading!
