Bitstamp is a European based cryptocurrency marketplace. It allows people from all around the world to buy and sell cryptocurrencies safely.
Yes! Our main priority is to keep clients’ personal data safe and secure. Bitstamp employs best practices in terms of security, by utilizing advanced security technologies. We have implemented the Multi-Sig technology to our hot wallet, where we keep only a very small portion of crypto assets, while the majority are safely stored offline, in cold storage systems. However, we cannot provide security for assets stored on users’ computers.
Bitstamp provides a safe environment for our customers to be able to trade cryptocurrencies with one another. This means that you are always buying cryptocurrencies from another Bitstamp user, who is selling them. We connect buyers with sellers, empower them to get their crypto or money at the agreed price, and do not interfere with our customers’ trading strategies.

Limit order gives you the power to set a specific price at which you would like to buy or sell the desired amount of cryptocurrency. Click here to use this order type. Example: If the current market price is 0.01 ETH for 1 BTC and you want to buy at 0.009 ETH for 1 BTC, simply place a limit buy order at the preferred price. When the market reaches your set price, an instant order is triggered and your limit order gets executed. If the market price is already lower than your set price, the condition for your limit buy order is already met and your order will be executed immediately, at an even lower price than specified. Note: If the market is very volatile, your limit order may not be carried out in full. If your desired amount of cryptocurrency cannot be purchased under the set price, only a part of your order will be carried out (for example, if you want to buy 100 BTC, but the market price only drops to your chosen value for such a short time that just 80 BTC is available under the conditions of your limit order).
All trades have a 0.1% commission.
The commission is appointed by the coin blockchain. To ensure the withdrawal, we will freeze the minimum balance
