BTC-Alpha Exchange Review

Centralized

BTC-Alpha Overview

  • BTC-Alpha is headquartered in the United Kingdom, a country which undoubtedly has the most cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Though it is registered in the UK, the exchange is not made by UK nationals. The CEO Vitalii Bodnar is Russian, and judging by the Chatbox and the exchange’s website, the team behind the exchange’s creation are Russians as well. Like most exchanges, the platform is not overseen by any authority and is not regulated. BTC-Alpha hosts a large number of popular cryptocurrencies and altcoins. The most popular crypto-fiat trading pairs on the exchange are BTC/USD and ETH/USD.

    BTC-Alpha has a flat trading fee of 0.20%, which is slightly lower than the global industry average of 0.25%, allowing for an advantage to the average user as it is quite a competitive fee. Deposits can be made via bank transfers, however, credit cards are not allowed. The platform offers trading in both fiat currency and cryptocurrency, which allows for it to appeal to a larger audience amongst cryptocurrency investors.

    When tested, BTC-Alpha scored pretty high for security in one exchange review, however, there have been various complaints of BTC-Alpha mishandling users’ cryptocurrencies. BTC-Alpha has responded to such claims on its website, explaining that complaints that were made do not have any relation to BTC-Alpha, or that they were made accompanied by "unreasonable demands for a refund, threatenings” etc. To provide enhanced security, BTC-Alpha utilizes the two-factor authentication system (2FA), which is commonly used in cryptocurrency exchanges. The system prevents hackers who have obtained account passwords from accessing the account, by sending a verification code to the user’s mobile device. However, completely anonymous trading is not allowed on the platform, which might deter certain users looking for maximum protection and anonymity from using this platform.

                                  Last edit 28.11.2019

                                  • BTC-Alpha is a crypto exchange registered in UK, although we believe it to be operated from Ukraine. The exchange offers trading against USD, although it is rather misleading - they do not accept traditional methods of depositing USD (i.e bank transfer) but several esoteric internet-based payment methods which most customers will probably not trust. Their site is pretty basic, not displaying a high functionality or an inviting UI, and their fees are quite average for the industry - 0.2%. There are around 100 coins tradeable on BTC-Alpha, with around 200 trading pairs in total.

                                    The team is all based in Ukraine, from what we could gather, with the CEO not being very experienced in blockchain technology and no-one appearing in searches who is in charge of managing risk. The exchange appears to have started operations in 2018. There exist many reports from users online which claim the exchange is having trouble processing their withdrawal requests, at times even leaving the users with unresolved problems - although in the Telegram group, the admins assure users that any issues they are experiencing will receive personal help from team members in an attempt to resolve them.

                                    To conclude, BTC-Alpha does not appear fraudulent, although it does appear like the founding team wanted to quickly capitalize on an attractive crypto market (in early 2018 terms) and quickly built an exchange which has many technical problems and does not serve its users very well.
