Finally, a Cryptocurrency exchange for the masses and Happy New Year!

If you’re like most people that are trying to get into the cryptocurrency market for the first time you’ll need to do it using your “regular money” (fiat currency) from your bank account or credit card. Unfortunately, it’s VERY DIFFICULT (if almost impossible at this point) to do so in the current state of the market.

BINKD is here to change all that by providing a US-based Hybrid Cryptocurrency Exchange with a user-friendly mobile Broker app and website that will allow anyone to easily buy and sell cryptocurrency with their fiat currency.

Currently, Out of the top 10 exchanges:

  • Only 5 allow Fiat deposit/withdrawal. All 5 are either NOT accepting new signups, have long delays, not available to US residents, or have not launched yet.
  • 7 out of 10 are fully Centralized exchanges
  • 3 are in Test or Alpha stages
  • And the rest are just awful, non user-friendly, or just plain “down”.
