The Good
  • Largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world by liquidity
  • Massive cryptocurrencies selection available (700+)
  • Large amount of financial products in the form of derivatives (Vanilla options, futures, etc)
  • Advanced trading platforms with visual order books at no cost
  • Broad asset offering in their investing account (more than 10,000 assets)
  • Friendly, smooth and simple proprietary platforms (both web and mobile)
  • Great spreads on stocks and no commissions on investing accounts
The Bad
  • Interface can be complex to use for beginners
  • The wide selection of products and derivatives can also be intimidating for beginners
  • Despite both platforms being beautiful, they are gamified for engagement. Clicking on the buy button on mobile platform will trigger a random order without asking for confirmation
  • Asides from stocks, their asset offering lacks variety
  • Very high forex spreads (1.4 Pips on EUR/USD)
