We compiled a list of things to consider when choosing OKCoin
We believe in building a future where people around the world have access to a new financial system. One where there are no borders. Anyone can join and be part of the value creation and financial upside, not just a small group of people. A world where anyone can be an investor with the right tools at their fingertips. You can transfer funds between your friends, family or business partners without having to deal with multiple banks and exuberant amounts of undisclosed fees.
That is the future we are helping build together with the rest of the builders in crypto. To accomplish this goal, we focus obsessively on things that matter to investors. This includes easy access to the crypto markets at the lowest cost and a reliable and secure platform that is intuitive and easy to use regardless of the level of your experience as an investor.
There are a lot more reasons OKCoin is a great place for you to start your trading journey or choose us as a better place to trade and build your crypto portfolio. Here are the 10 things we are most proud of:
1. Lightning fast trades
Sometimes the markets move fast, and you want to be able to open a trade without waiting long for your account to be set up or for your wire transfer to clear. That’s why we built a platform where you can fund your account within 2 minutes! OKCoin has the least clicks and shortest signup of any crypto exchange.
2. Lowest exchange fees for buying and selling crypto
We’re committed to making it as easy as possible to get into crypto, so we’ve lowered the financial barrier. Our fees are among the lowest in the industry at 0.1% or lower.
3. Adding more and more new crypto assets for trading
As the crypto community moves, so do we; we’re always looking at new assets to list on our exchange platform. Recent additions to our asset offering include YFI, UNI, and COMP, and many more assets are currently under review. View our complete list of assets here.
4. Tools to dollar cost average and build a long term portfolio
With our recurring buy tool, you can set a buy order to add bitcoin to your portfolio in order to build your position over time. This is important for new and seasoned investors who want to dollar-cost average their position and reduce the impact of volatility on their purchases over time.
5. Free bitcoin giveaways

7. Licensed across the US with FDIC insurance on OKCoin accounts
We’re one of the few exchanges in the United States focused on winning licenses for every state. OKCoin is now licensed in 42 states for token-to-token trading and USD-to-token trading, and 5 states for token-to-token trading. We’re working hard to open up in all 50 states, find the full list here. OKCoin provides FDIC insurance for all USD deposits.
