Foxbit 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 Foxbit consists of four parts: general information, fees, deposit methods and security.

General Information

Foxbit is another Brazilian cryptocurrency exchange. The land of samba and football (“soccer” for you Americans) is actually also a wasp nest of cryptocurrency exchanges. Among the biggest and most popular cryptocurrency exchanges from Brazil we find, inter alia, Bleutrade.

They seem to allow US-investors to trade, but US-investors should still do their own independent assessment of any problems arising from their residency or citizenship.

This exchange only offers trading in Bitcoin. If you would prefer a coin exchange with a more extensive selection of trading pairs, we recommend you to check out Changelly or KuCoin.

Foxbit Trading View

Different exchanges have different trading views. And there is no “this overview is the best”-view. You should yourself determine which trading view that suits you the best. What the views normally have in common is that they all show the order book or at least part of the order book, a price chart of the chosen cryptocurrency and order history. They normally also have buy and sell-boxes. Before you choose an exchange, try to have a look at the trading view so that you can ascertain that it feels right to you. The below is a picture of the trading view at Foxbit:

Foxbit Fees

Foxbit Trading fees

Every trade occurs between two parties: the maker, whose order exists on the order book prior to the trade, and the taker, who places the order that matches (or “takes”) the maker’s order. We call makers “makers” because their orders make the liquidity in a market. Takers are the ones who remove this liquidity by matching makers’ orders with their own.

Foxbit’s trading fees for takers are 0.50%. This fee is double the global industry average, but not in excessive compared to other South American exchanges. The exchange does however offer a discount to makers, thus promoting the liquidity at the exchange. This is a very strong competitive edge in the market and is especially beneficial for the investors not interested in picking up existing orders from the order book but rather prefers to “go fishing” with maker-orders. The fee for makers are 0.25% of the order value.

Foxbit Withdrawal fees

Foxbit charges a withdrawal fee amounting to 0.00013 when you withdraw BTC. This is far below the global industry average and extremely low compared to other South American cryptocurrency exchanges.

Deposit Methods

Foxbit offers wire transfer as a deposit method, but you can’t deposit via credit card.

Foxbit Security

The security score of this exchange is F, when performing the test at Observatory by Mozilla (https://observatory.mozilla.org/). This is below industry average when it comes to top crypto exchanges.
