Buying and selling cryptocurrencies with any fiat currency or exchanging one form of crypto for another are processes that involve some costs. So if you are wondering if there are “free cryptocurrency exchanges”, the answer is — unfortunately, there is no such thing.

Similar to banks, crypto exchanges can’t provide their services for free. Crypto exchange services need to put numerous layers of security in place to make sure your fiat and crypto are safe and secure. Plus, exchanges need to make sure they are operating professionally and providing the services that customers need…

Recently, our specialists have not only renewed NOW staking principles for BEP-2 tokens but also introduced ERC-20 NOW staking with simplified mechanics. Thanks to these updates, it is now even more easy to capitalize on both your BEP-2 and ERC-20 NOW!

Under the new scheme, one can simply call the ‘Freeze’ method to stake BEP-2 tokens/send a deposit onto a smart contract for ERC-20 ones. ERC-20 NOW may be redeemed any time after a one week lock-up; upon this period, users gain full control over their assets.

For BEP-2 staking, we have also introduced…

Hey guys,

During the past 24 hours, ChangeNOW has been experiencing an extreme highload due to a vast influx of transactions.

The amount of swaps cracked all the records. We weren’t prepared to handle the overwhelming operational load and, to make matters worse, several of our liquidity providers failed to function. We are currently processing all the problem transactions; out of almost 9000 exchanges that got stuck, there are less than 2000 to process. …

It has been more than a decade since Bitcoin has been invented in 2008. The cryptocurrency industry encompasses more than 7500 tokens and has a market cap of nearly $400 billion. We think it’s fair to say cryptocurrencies are gradually moving towards mass adoption.
