Beginners Guide: Cryptopia Exchange Review

Cryptopia is a New Zealand-based crypto exchange that enables the buying and selling of cryptocurrencies.

There are 3 properties that make Cryptopia unique. The first is that it has a large number of cryptocurrencies listed on its platform. The exchange currently has over 550 cryptocurrencies listed on its platform, as opposed to the norm of 200. This makes it a good place to buy low-cap coins that would rarely be found on other exchanges.

Its second unique feature is that it is a peer-to-peer exchange. This means that transactions made via Cryptopia do not go through the exchange; rather, you are purchasing directly from other users when you buy. Users create orders and other users fill them.

And finally, Cryptopia has a marketplace that allows users to buy and sell anything using cryptocurrency.

Cryptopia was launched in 2014 by Adam Clark and Rob Dawson. The exchange is registered and based in New Zealand, and fully compliant with New Zealand regulations.

Cryptopia is a crypto-to-crypto exchange and has trading pairs with BTC, USDT, LTC, DOGE, and NZDT. NZDT is a cryptocurrency token released by Cryptopia and tethered to the New Zealand dollar, just like how USDT is tethered to the US dollar.
