How to Buy Bitcoin with Bithoven?
You can not buy bitcoin for fiat on Bithoven as it is only a crypto-crypto exchange platform. Once you buy your bitcoin on some other exchange or P2P platform (see here how and where you can do it), you can send it over to Bithoven. The process is fairly easy, especially if you already have experience in using any crypto exchange.
Once you log in to Bithoven, you are sent directly to your balances page where you have an overview of all coins you own.
By clicking on the „deposit“ button, you are prompted to generate new wallet address. By clicking on „Generate Address“ button you get a new address which you can then use to send your bitcoins (or other coins that you bought on Coinbase, Cex.io or somewhere else) to Bithoven.
How to Make a Trade on Bithoven?
Trading on Bithoven is very easy thanks to the simplistic and very intuitive interface that is very similar to other top exchanges, so you will have no trouble getting used to it. Once you log in and get sent over to balance page, in the right upper corner appears a big green button labeled „Trade“. Once you click on it, you will land on the bithoven’s trading interface.
One of the nice, distinctive touches on Bithoven is their charting interface where you can choose between native Bithoven and TradingView, the leading charting software engine that powers up almost all major charting tools across the financial markets.
Another quirk Bithoven offers is fully customizable interface where you can move different feature boxes around to fit your liking.
The interface is split into boxes, just like with other exchanges: on top you have charting interface to the left, trading pair on the right. Next scrolling window contains the buy and sell boxes, with all the options (limit and market buys and sells, stop order) and open orders windos.
Next scroll brings us to the current open buy and sell orders. And finally, last scroll enables us to see the buy and sell walls along with the most recent executed orders.
This is probably one of the major advantages of Bithoven over other exchanges – their customer support is very quick and can be reaced via direct chat or standard email correspondence. Customer support is live 7 days a week with their chat support option responding to your questions within minutes (most of the time), so that is another advantage over the rest of the exchange landscape.
The company is new and doesn’t have any established reputation, which is the greatest drawback of the otherwise great exchange. Considering all the scams and fraudulent cases swirling around crypto industry, customers are wary of new and less known companies.
However, time is on Bithoven’s side – barring major hacks or frauds, they will have a solid reputation in no time.
Depending on your account level, you can transfer 2BTC (for non verified accounts) or 100 BTC for the full verified, KYC-ed accounts.
How Secure is Bithoven platform?
The platform is up to par with the best of the best, implementing all best practices and security measures like 2FA, full encryption for all data transactions, automatic logouts after inactivity etc.
Bithoven is building their name with a slew of promotions where they giveaway different cryptocurrencies – right now, they are doing a giveaway of the legendary meme coin, Doge. The only condition to receive your 100 Doge is to register – yes, every new, unique registration gets 100 Doge tokens.
Thought by the bitter experience of hacks, frauds, scams and regulatory clamp downs, crypto users are rather skeptical when it comes to new products or platforms in crypto industry. Bithoven will need to fight through the stigma their business model is stamped with thanks to the misdealings of others. If the morning shows the day, Bithoven stands a good chance of giving Binance & co a run for their money and establishing itself as the new go-to exchange
