Bitstamp Exchange Score Analysis

Bitstamp is one of the veteran exchanges in the crypto space, having been founded as far back as 2011 and remained stable throughout the relentless crypto market. They also allow fiat-crypto trading, mainly catering to the european market, with EUR deposits and withdrawals, alongside spot trading against major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Bitstamp is very accessible and to-the-point in its design, displaying users with the necessary tools to perform desired actions without too much flashiness. However, upon reaching out to their support team, we did not receive an answer within a reasonable timeframe, a downside which might carry extreme consequences in a state of heavy market volatility. Aside from allowing fiat trading, Bitstamp does not display much advantage over some of its larger competitors, allowing trading only in major cryptocurrencies with a relatively small amount of listed coins and trading pairs – although this might be due to the fact that becoming a regulated exchange does not go hand-in-hand with listing as many random coins as possible. Bitstamp’s team is large, capable and reputable, having run the exchange successfully since its launch, and have also received a positive reinforcement via the exchange’s acquisition by belgian-korean conglomerate NXMH in October 2018. To conclude, Bitstamp has rightfully earned its solid place as a reputable fiat-crypto exchange, although this might be as far as its specialties go, and when a user experiences an issue which must involve contacting Bitstamp’s support to resolve – they might be left without an answer for a significant amount of time.
