REMITANO Review 2019

REMITANOReview

Remitano is an online cryptocurrency exchange brand which was set up primarily to serve the emerging market economies of the world. Remitano is owned and operated by Babylon Solutions Ltd, a Seychelles-based company.

Remitano set up shop in 2014 and was born out of the growing demand for Bitcoin trading in the emerging markets of Africa, South America, and the Middle East. Remitano offers the trading of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether and Bitcoin Cash.

Remitano provides a platform where holders of these cryptocurrencies can trade with each other. Remitano holds buyers’ funds in escrow, then allows sellers to list their crypto assets for sale. When a seller completes the transfer of the altcoin or Bitcoin to the buyer’s wallet, Remitano places this in an escrow wallet, thus locking them. The buyer then transfers the agreed exchange amount in fiat currency to the seller’s account, and takes a transaction fee for the service provided, then remits the locked coins to the buyer.

Regulation

Just like many other exchanges around the world, Remitano is not a regulated exchange and does not operate in a regulated environment. Seychelles traditionally has a very liberal view on financial market regulation so it is very likely that even if regulations are instituted, enforcement will be minimal.

Reliability

So far, apart from a few minor cases of attempted scams by sellers (which were detected and dealt with by the Remitano team), Remitano has proven to be a reliable exchange. Peer-to-peer direct transactions between two parties are one of the topmost methods of cryptocurrency trading, and by providing a safe environment for buyers and sellers to transact, Remitano has brought some reliability and transparency to the exchange ecosystem.

Remitano has in place some security features to improve the reliability of its platform.

  1. A 2-factor authentication process for initiating transactions.
  2. The escrow system.
  3. The seller reputation metrics system which provides a lot of information that a buyer can use in assessing the authenticity of a seller.
  4. Feedback scoring system.
  5. A full KYC process where sellers are identified by their government ID documents.
  6. Login protection using an email verification system.
  7. Trade timeouts after a period of inactivity, which requires the parties to begin the process again and identify themselves.

Trading Platforms

Remitano features two platforms on which its service is run.

There is a web-based platform which enables buyers and sellers to connect with each other. The web-based platform features the trading interface which lists sellers as well as their reputation metrics.

Remitano Mobile Trading

There is also the mobile app which is featured on the App Store and Google Play store. It provides the same features as the web-based portal and is suitable for those who like to conduct transactions on the go.

Trade Types/Instruments

Remitano offers users the opportunity to buy or sell the following cryptocurrency assets in exchange for fiat currency:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Ether (ETH)
  • Tether (USDT)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

The trades are strictly on a buy or sell basis. The sellers list the prices at which they will sell their crypto assets. Buyers have the liberty of scrolling through the list of sellers and the prices at which they will sell their crypto assets and make their trade decisions accordingly.

Account Types

Three account types exist on Remitano. These are:

  1. Starter
  2. Gold
  3. Platinum

Commissions and Spreads

The fee structure on Remitano is very simple. The company takes a 1% transaction charge on all transactions done between buyers and sellers, as payment for its escrow service. This fee also covers the Bitcoin transaction cost paid to miners. The fee is taken upfront when the listing is done.
