HB.top Review

A crypto exchange guide must provide reviews of all of the exchanges out there, so that you can find the right one for you. This review of HB.top consists of four parts: general info, fees, deposit methods and security.

General Info

HB.top is an exchange from Hong Kong. It launched in July 2017. Hong Kong has for a long time, together with Singapore, been the main crypto country in Asia so it’s no surprise that so many exchanges are registered here.

One of HB.top’s strenghts is that they support many different cryptos. On the date of writing this review (28 October 2019), HB.top supported 63 different cryptocurrencies. This is a strong number and can be attractive especially for people looking to trade the less known altcoins.

We have no reason to believe that US-investors can’t trade here. There are no prohibitions against US-investors in the exchange’s Terms and Conditions or anything similar. But, as always, any US-investors interested in trading here should form their own opinion on any issues arising from their citizenship or residency.

OTC-desk

HB.top also has an OTC-desk. With an OTC-desk, you can execute larger trades with quick settlement. Trades that you for pricing reasons (also known as “slippage”) don’t want to execute on on the open market.

HB.top Trading View

Different exchanges have different trading views. And there is no “this overview is the best”-view. You should yourself determine which trading interface 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 crypto 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 see that it feels right to you. The below is a picture of the trading view at HB.top:

HB.top Fees

HB.top Trading fees

This particular trading platform doesn’t charge different fees between takers and makers. Their fee model is instead something called a “flat fee model”. For investors who prefer to pick-up existing orders from the order book, this might be an attractive trading fee model. The flat fee is 0.20%. This fee is slightly below the industry average.

The industry average has for a long time arguably been 0.25%, but we currently see more and more exchanges moving to far lower trading fees. 0.10%-0.15% are emerging as new industry averages. For the time being though, 0.20% is still in line with industry average.

HB.top Withdrawal fees

HB.top charges a withdrawal fee amounting to 0.0005 BTC when you withdraw BTC. This is around 40% lower than the industry average, as the industry average is 0.000812 BTC per BTC-withdrawal.

All in all, the fees here are competitive.

Deposit Methods

This trading venue does not accept any other deposit method than cryptos, so new crypto investors can’t actually trade here. If you don’t have any crypto but want to start trading at this exchange, you will first have to purchase cryptos from another exchange and then, as a second step, deposit them here. Luckily for you, you can use the Exchange Finder to find a crypto exchange accepting fiat deposits.

HB.top Security

We run all the 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. HB.top received an F-score in this test. This should however be viewed in light of the fact that F is the Mozilla Observatory-score received by the majority of all exchanges in our Exchange List.
