Unlike most cryptocurrency exchanges that we find on the internet, Mercatox is a multifunctional cryptocurrency exchange that offers more than cryptocurrency trading services. Apart from providing trading services for a wide selection of cryptocurrencies, Mercatox also provides its clients with a lending platform, a multicurrency wallet and payment services. With more than 280,000 registered users, Mercatox has become one of the most talked about cryptocurrency exchanges in recent months.
