Online and offline exchangers work in the usual format: you exchange hryvnia or other fiat funds for the selected cryptocurrency. The amount is deducted from your bank account, in exchange for the crypto wallet receives the equivalent of cryptocurrency at the current exchange rate. To use the cryptocurrency exchanger online, you need to have a Visa or Mastercard card of a Ukrainian bank and a secure personal crypto wallet.
What are the pitfalls here? As a novice who chooses the first cryptocurrency, you are unlikely to have time to understand the types of wallets and explore exchange rates, commissions and protocol standards.
Sometimes on P2P-platforms it is possible to deposit funds to the accounts that belong to the platform, which increases the security of foreign exchange transactions, but this type of service is not available on all P2P-platforms. You will also have to create a wallet: custodial or non-custodial, cold or hot.
The cryptocurrency exchange is an analogue of the stock exchange with only one difference: it trades exclusively in digital assets. The advantages of the exchange include a large selection of coins and a built-in wallet where you can safely store assets. On the other hand, to receive a transfer in cryptocurrency or buy the first crypt, you will have to register: enter your email, first and last name, pass a multi-factor identity check, send photos of documents, etc.
Agree, it is quite difficult for an enthusiast who does not yet know how to buy the first crypt.
