Fisco Review

A trading cryptocurrency guide must provide reviews of all of the top crypto exchanges out there, so that you can find the best cryptocurrency exchange site for you. This review of Fisco consists of four parts: general information, fees, deposit methods and security.

General Information

Fisco is a Japanese cryptocurrency exchange. It originally launched in July 2016. There are many Japanese cryptocurrency exchanges out there. The list includes, but is not limited to, BitFlyer, Bitbank, Mr. Exchange, Quoinex, Qryptos, Coincheck, BTCBox and Neraex. Out of these, we would probably recommend Bitbank as it has 0.00% in trading fees.

Speaking of Zaif, on 22 November 2018, the Tech Bureau, Corp. will sell the Zaif Exchange and the Zaif Instant Exchange to Fisco, pursuant to a transfer of business agreement signed on 10 October 2018. Following the sale, Zaif and Fisco will presumably combine their respective businesses.

At this exchange, you can only trade Bitcoin and Monacoin. If you’re looking for an exchange with a wider selection of trading pairs, check out our Exchange Finder and we’ll help you find one.

Fisco does not explicitly state that US-investors are prohibited from trading. Accordingly, we do believe that US-investors can trade here (but we are not able to give any guarantee to that effect).

Fisco Fees

Fisco Trading fees

This exchange has a quite unique trading fee offering: they don’t charge any. It doesn’t matter if you’re a taker or a maker, the trading fees are still 0.00%. This is extremely competitive. Sure, there are a few exchanges that offer negative maker fees (meaning that makers get paid to trade). These are Cryptox, Qryptos, BitMEX, Gopax, HitBTC and Crex24. But none of them have 0.00% taker fees.

So, to conclude, trading fees at Fisco are very competitive.

Fisco Withdrawal fees

One might expect this exchange to have hefty withdrawal fees, seeing as they can’t make any profit from their trading fees. The withdrawal fees, however, are also very competitive. They charge 0.0005 BTC when you withdraw BTC. This is far below the global industry average, which is 0.0008 BTC.

Deposit Methods

This exchange offers wire transfer as a deposit method, but you can’t deposit via credit card. This of course negative news to you if you would prefer to use your credit card for any reason.

Security

We run all exchange-websites in Mozilla’s Observatory-test (https://observatory.mozilla.org/). The score in such test is one of many indicators of the exchange’s security. Fisco only received an F-score in this test. This is below industry average and is thus not a competitive advantage at all for this exchange.

If you have concluded that this is the exchange for you, congratulations! Go for it. But if not, find the best cryptocurrency exchange site for you by using our revolutionary matching tool.

Good luck!
