Conclusion

Bityard scored 63/100 on our review matrix giving the exchange a B- rating overall.

The exchange offers a solid trading experience and there are several notable areas of strength, which include the lack of trading restrictions for global users. There is also a demo platform to allow users to try the trading experience before risking live funds and a mobile app allowing users to trade on the move.

One of the standout features of the platform is their regulation in several countries meaning global users have no restriction in using the platform. It also demonstrates the long term vision of the exchange, by implementing licences early it means there is no regulatory hindrance in their growth later down the line.

As a relatively new and unknown exchange, there are areas that can be tweaked to improve the trading experience for the user. This includes more transparency around the team behind Bityard and improving the trading experience/interface.

We have sent this information to the Bityard team and we will come back after 6 months to re-review the platform to see if any recommendations have been implemented.

For anyone wishing to sign up to the platform, there is a bonus of up to $258 available for new users and you can sign up in the link above.
