List of Bitcoin trading websites (UPDATED LIST Jan 11, 2018)
binance.com (biggest exchange in world now, seems solid, lots of alts, supports some forks)
bitmex.com (popular exchange, especially for margin traders, no USA allowed)
Bitstamp is a European Union based bitcoin marketplace. It allows people from all around the world to safely buy and sell bitcoins.
bitstamp.net (solid exchange, reliable, old, hard to get verified tho)
Coinbase is a San Francisco based Bitcoin trading site who’s committment is to “making bitcoin easy to use”. Their team consists of 3 people, Olaf Carlson-Wee, Fred Ehrsam, and Brian Armstrong. Their investors are Greg Kidd, Y Combinator, Garry Tan, Start Fund, Adam Draper, Funders Club, and IDG Ventures.
My personal experience with Coinbase was the smoothest and best of all the BTC trading sites out there. Their layout is the simplest. You’re bank account gets approved quickly with a small deposit that you must verify (the same way that Paypal verifies bank accounts).
coinbase.com (quit using bcos their scammyness/bcash/brian armstrong)
cryptopia.co.nz (has TONS of alts, almost every coin listing, terrible support)
gate.io (many complaints via telegram chat, kinda new/unpopular, worked fine for me, high withdraw fees)
hitbtc.com (lots of bad reports about withdraws, maybe paid FUD’ers, seems fine for me my btc withdraws all smooth, high withdraw fees)
kucoin.com (solid, seems good so far)
mercatox.com (not used yet)
yobit.net (kinda sketchy feel bcos Russian exchange, lots of fork coins tho, good for temp holding for airdrops)
http://www.coin.mx (closed July 2015)
Coin MX is a pretty new bitcoin exchange that allows you to buy bitcoin many ways including credit card purchases, both Visa and Mastercard (I personally used a MasterCard recently to purchase bitcoins at Coin.mx, for a steep fee, but still is nice to have the option available). You can also purchase Litecoins at CoinMx.
Ok Coin is a worldwide crypto-currency trading platform. It resembles Coinbase quite a bit. It is mostly focused in for trading in China.
http://www.btc-e.com new – https://wex.nz
BTC-E is a Russian-based Bitcoin exchange open since July 2011.
Vircurex, the exchange platform for buying, selling and trading your Bitcoins and its various alt-chains. We currently support Bitcoin, Namecoin, Devcoin, Litecoin, Ixcoin, PPCoin, Terracoin
VirWoX is where you can buy or sell Linden Dollars, Avination C$, and OMC for Euro, US dollars, Swiss Franc, and British Pounds. From my experience here, you can deposit funds to your VirWoX account via Paypal, then buy Linden Dollars, then you exchange those for Bitcoins. I ended up paying about $24 over priced for 1 Bitcoin. So if Bitcoins is what you want, expect to pay way overpriced amounts at VirWoX.
BTC China is the #1 bitcoin exchange in China.
Trade, buy and sell bitcoins using VirtEx Canadian-only bitcoin exchange site.
Bitfloor has ceased all operations and closed its doors recently. Bitfloor closing post.
Mt.Gox is (WAS) the world’s largest Bitcoin exchange, BY FAR! According to their July 2011 date, Mt. Gox was handling over 80% of all Bitcoin trade.
My personal experience with Mt. Gox is a nightmare getting verified with them.
