binance SG uses hot wallet so security wise not as good as coinhako unless you dont store your coins in exchange

I use gemini for my crypto purchases as I mainly purchase BTC and ETH. Does binance offer better rates?

After buying BTC, i transfer them to an interest yielding account offered by another company. So while i hodl, I generate some interest of the BTC

gemini is very expensive. i just tried and fees at 1.5%? not to mention fx costs to convert sgd to usd which make it over 2%? binance sg is much cheaper since no fx conversion and from what i read fees is just 0.6%. but i think cryto.com is even cheaper

Use CFD to trade is better
Crypto is volatile so using CFD is ideal

Wow. You are right. 1.5% for the trading fees. If you buy using the mobile app, there's anyother 0.5% mark-up. Then you add that to the SGD to USD forex conversion......Damn I have been paying plenty of fees for crypto...

Gonna port out my crypto from Gemini.

Anyone has any referral code for binance or cypto.com. Do PM me thanks.

I am thinking of switching from Binance SG to Crypto.com. Binance SG 0.6% fees buy/sell, not including spread. According to their website, Crypto.com 0% for buying from Xfers, and 0.4% sell to Xfers.

I'm referring to fees for fiat to crypto and vice versa for Singapore users https://help.crypto.com/en/articles/...fers-singapore

Some people who don't like to invest their cryptocurrency, simply can make nice profit by exchanging one crypto to another, when the profitable time comes. If you have enough of DOGE and you want to get benefits from exchanging it to Bitcoins, I can highly recommend you this great doge to btc calculator which I found recently from Godex. It seems like it's one of the most reliable and accurate calculators on the web.
