BuyUcoin Exchange Rating Analysis
Last edit 28.11.2019
BuyUcoin was founded in 2016 in India. It promotes itself as 'India's first Bitcoin Exchange with Credit Card Payment facility', indeed they do accept cards in INR currency as a fiat option. In 2017 the exchange added to its offering Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and Dash, the same year different coins got listed. Now there are 33 coins including their own BUC token.
After a short chat with an advisor via WhatsApp, it must be admitted that BuyUcoin is still under development. The company is working to add an insurance for users' crypto. Unfortunately there is a huge disadvantage, commissions are quite high and volumes very low. The team is easy to find on the website and as well many more employees are available on Linkedin, including founder and CEO Shivam Thakral. Although there is no one responsible for Risk, BuyUcoin has some strong security layers upon withdrawals including using 'cold wallets', they store 95% of customer funds offline. It also requires you to verify an email, phone number and complete some KYC information before making a transfer.
