Changelly, a cryptocurrency exchange, is part of a growing movement to enable easier access and informative decisions for new users to trade altcoins.
Changelly Taps CoinGecko & CoinMarketCap
Changelly’s design presents both technical chart information and coin-specific statistics to help users determine which altcoins are worth investing in. Moreover, integration of a DDoS resistant Ethereum client Parity and the ongoing addition of new coins should expand the service’s reach.
Natively displayed information helps users decide how to directly trade any two pairs of altcoins for one another. Given the tendency to price and value altcoins in terms of Bitcoin, when swapping altcoins directly investors need to do extensive research to accurately quantify their order levels. As a result, there are less liquidity in most of these trading markets. Direct trading of altcoins remains a valuable experiment for the industry to learn if a restriction-less trading environment can lead to a truer market pricing environment for altcoins.
Better Tools for a Bigger Picture
Currently there are more than 25 altcoins supported on the Changelly exchange. Ethereum, Monero and Ripple lead in trading volume among altcoins, said Maret Avik of Changelly. There is a reasonably high trading cap of 50 BTC per transaction, allowing both small through relatively large volume traders to participate, who for each trade incur a flat fee of 0.5%. Avik added:
We have a clear and comprehensive interface, where every user who has any amount of cryptos may exchange them at profitable rates in a few clicks without jumping into technology aspects and tricky bid-ask orders, like on Poloniex and other trade platforms.
