SpaceBTC is a cryptocurrency exchange from the United Kingdom. United Kingdom is the country which without a doubt has the most cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. At least that we know of. A non-exhaustive list of exchanges from the UK (in addition to this one) includes Exmo, CEX.io, CoinEgg, Livecoin, DSX, LocalTrade, Bittylicious (funny name by the way), CoinMate, Indacoin, MixCoins, Paybis, Vaultoro, Instant Bitex and eToro.
US-investors may not trade here. The reason for excluding US-investors are primarily regulatory reasons. The US-legal regime imposes obligations on many companies accepting funds from US-investors. Such obligations include, inter alia, preparing marketing material in accordance with SEC-standards and registering them with the SEC (which is a very burdensome process).

SpaceBTC Withdrawal fees
SpaceBTC charges a withdrawal fee amounting to 0.001 BTC when you withdraw BTC. Also this is in line with industry average.
