How To Instantly Buy & Sell Crypto Directly Against Your Local Currency

One of the most exciting things about cryptocurrency over traditional currency is its elimination of third-party risk. Instead of trusting a third-party entity to keep a record of your money — which is a simplified version of how traditional banking works — blockchains use an immutable public transaction ledger which is constantly audited using cryptographic proofs.

Problem with the current or most popular way to transacting cryptocurrency: Centralized Crypto Exchange

When you deposit or purchase cryptocurrency on a centralized exchange, you don’t hold the private key to those cryptocurrencies; instead, you’re trusting the exchange, in the same way, that you trust your bank, to hold on to and keep an accurate record of your balance(s).

So, even if you think you are using a decentralized currency (cryptocurrency) you are still dependent on a CENTRALISED ENTITY (Like Banks) to hold and keep records of your transactions and money.

How about a solution where you can make transactions P2P? P2P exchanges allow the participants of the market to trade directly with each other without any trusted third party to process all trades. But, still getting instant liquidity is a huge problem.

Introducing Liquidity Portal by XanPool

Built on top of Xanpool’s C2C fiat gateway, Liquidity Portal can be easily connected with any DEX (like Uniswap) or CEX (like OKEx). This feature allows the users to buy/sell any altcoins in a C2C environment against their own local currency.

How it Works

Have you ever tried buying non-popular altcoins (the alts which aren’t in top 5) with your local currency? Isn’t that tricky? — “Buying altcoins that are not top 5 cryptocurrencies in a local currency across Asia is very troublesome,” Liu said, “usually people buy Bitcoin initially and then transfer them to other CEX or DEX and then buy altcoins”. This whole situation is true even in the worlds-first financial hub i.e Hong Kong.

The Liquidity Portal lets users buy/sell altcoins directly through their local currency. This totally eliminates the need of buying bitcoin or a stablecoin first, then transferring that particular coin to a specific exchange, and then finally purchasing an altcoin. This makes the entire process convenient & fast.

However, there is an option to transfer the funds from within the liquidity portal to your personal OKEx exchange account. To do that, simply connect your exchange, select the coin you’d like to send and voila!
