Most exchanges operate on a fee-based system where the exchange charges a small fee as a percentage of your buy or sell transaction, and for every trade there is a buy and a sell executed. These two sides of the trade can be divided between the maker and taker side of the transaction.
Some exchanges offer zero fees, but is it really the case? Zero fee exchanges often widen the spread and hide their fee within that margin. This lacks transparency and has many traders thinking they are saving on fees when actually they are losing.
A common topic amongst cryptocurrency traders and investors is liquidity. Today we will take a look at what liquidity is and why we, as traders, are interested in participating in a market that offers us sufficient liquidity.

In 2017, we saw the phase of active price growth of a total crypto market capitalization. The final stage of parabolic rise came at the end of the year, breaking the records of the percentage growth of two famous market bubbles in history: the Dutch tulip mania in 1636–1637 and the dotcom bubble in 1995–2001.
Bitcoin, as the main and the most famous cryptocurrency, demonstrated the so-called “mass effect”, when the price increase caused the growth of interest from a wide audience, which in turn…
The blockchain technology came into existence in 2009 when Satoshi Nakamoto published the White Paper entitled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”. The first-ever cryptocurrency arose from its own blockchain, and Bitcoin entered our world. Like any new thing, cryptocurrency has both supporters and opponents.
