To trade crypto, you first need to Buy crypto. Under the current scenario and looming uncertainties from banks and payment methods it is challenging to find a suitable payment method, to purchase crypto with your local currency (Fiat currency). KuCoin P2P provides you with the most versatile, robust and cheapest way to purchase crypto from anywhere in the world, while accepting many Popular currencies from across the globe.

KuCoin P2P now supports the purchase of crypto such as BTC, ETH and USDT in more than 20 fiat currencies including USD, NGN, INR, MYR and RUB. This blog will walk you through the KuCoin P2P Trade and help you enter the crypto world with ease.

1. What is KuCoin P2P Trading?

P2P is short for peer-to-peer, which means a user is trading directly with another user, not the platform. It’s quite flexible as you will be able to choose who to trade with, when to make the transfer and what the price is.

P2P trading is not something new. In the early days of crypto, there was no advanced crypto platform to match the buyer and seller, so crypto holders had to find their trading counterparty through Telegram groups or Bitcoin forums. The buyer sends fiat to the crypto seller, then the seller transfers crypto to the buyer’s crypto address. Because there’s no third party involved, such trading can be risky as no one can guarantee the two parties will make the transaction as promised. For instance, if the seller does not send the crypto after receiving the fiat, there’s nothing the buyer can do.

On the KuCoin P2P Trade Platform, KuCoin safeguards the transaction by offering an escrow service, ensuring the safety and fairness of every trade. Simply put, the buyer can place an order on the KuCoin P2P platform, and the seller’s crypto will be temporarily frozen by KuCoin. The buyer must then send the fiat currencies to the seller’s bank account, and once done, the crypto held will be released to the buyer’s KuCoin Main Account. In this way, both parties can ease their fear of the default risk of their counterparties. So, everyone is happy.
