MERCATOX Review 2019

MERCATOXReview

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.

The multi-functional platform is suitable for both beginner and experienced cryptocurrency traders.

Available in various languages such as English, Russian and Chinese, the Mercatox platform allows you to trade in several kinds of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Dash, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, OkPay, Payeer, PerfectMoney, and Ya.Money. With its proprietary web-based trading platform, you can view prices from both the cryptocurrency markets as well as the e-currency market. In the e-currency market, the choices of currency pairs include the following:

  • BTC /OK USD

  • BTC /PM USD
  • BTC /PR RUB
  • BTC /PR USD
