    "what does this new site add to the existing solutions of gdax and gemini? It's just as confusing as any other exchange for me. And it is actually a new crypto with its own blockchain? or is it an exchange as they make it sound? Kinda sounds fishy at least to me"

    "I used etrade primariliy for a while until I discovered them. There is much more flexibility with access to all market, and the money is yours instead of help in a bank. It helps to have trading experience before using this but is a very good program and system to trade on."

    "It's a decent solution for buying Bitcoin but it doesn't seem to have any other digital currency for trade so while Bitcoin is obviously the front runner and most in demand this is hardly a site that you would use to try to buy or sell multiple types of cryptocurrencies. So for Bitcoin it's a win for the rest you need to look elsewhere."
