The Rock Trading is an Italian, fairly popular cryptocurrency exchange located in Malta. The homepage is very transparent and very informative, and basically, all the necessary information are on the home page. It is one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchanges on the market being founded seven years ago - in 2011. Also, the platform stands out surprisingly solid with their customer service. You can see here that the creators pay attention to the customers' opinions making this stock exchange some exclusive and clearly show customers that they know what they are doing. The big advantage of this exchange is that it accept users from the United States, although they are slightly limited with deposit options and withdrawals via bank account. However, this is not a particular problem since OKPay wallet is available for them.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Rock Trading supports 6 cryptocurrencies which are Bitcoin, Litecoin, Peercoin, Ripple, Ethereum and ZCash. They announced though that they are adding more cryptocurrencies in the near future.
The registration process is very simple. All you have to do is enter your details and start trading cryptocurrencies right away. But remember that verification of identity (KYC) is required to handle Fiat currencies. This is not a big problem though because you only need to send scanned ID, passport or driver's license, and one confirmation of the address like a bank statement. In comparison with other exchanges, they usually process your data on the same day, and you may start trading in Fiat currencies. The available fiat currencies are EUR and USD, and the funds can be transferred either by bank transfer, OKPay, Crypto Capital or Ripple.
When it comes to withdrawals, funds can be withdrawn using the same methods made with the payment. However, residents of the United States are not able to use banking services. They are available for withdrawals using a relatively fast one OKPay platform, which will convert our funds into one, up two days.
One undeniable advantage of The Rock Trading platform is their fees. For new users who do not have a rich trading history, they may seem relatively high. Although more trading is made on the stock exchange within one month, such limits are rapidly decreasing. Initially started at 0.20%, but it is possible to get a commission equal to only 0.02% which is nothing but for free. And best of all - Rock Trading stock market is reaching the maximum possible, unlike other exchanges, where to achieve such a low level of commission, we have to make transactions for several hundred thousand or even one million zlotys in a month which is unobtainable for 99% of traders.
The security aspect of the platform deserves a lot of praise. You can see that the creators treat them very seriously, and provides their users with the highest innovative quality standards, allowing them to maintain relative anonymity and the protection of personal data. The most important features of the platform the platform security are:
- A relatively recently added EV SSL protocol
The possibility of establishing a PIN code for each transaction and withdrawing from an ATM that can be blocked - that is, we can set in our profile that this PIN code can never be changed so that even if someone would log into our account, in no way will be able to make a withdrawal.
