Bitstamp News

Bitstamp was one of the first platforms to offer cryptocurrency exchange features in Europe, and currently recognized as one of the most transparent and legally compliant exchanges in operation.

The exchange regularly achieves over $1 billion in monthly trade volume, with the bulk of this coming from its BTC/USD and BTC/EUR trading pairs. Currently, Bitstamp is a fully regulated exchange, legally entitled to operate in all EU member states and the United States.

In late 2018, Bitstamp was acquired by NMXH, a Belgium-based investment company for an undisclosed amount. Bitstamp is also noted to have formed partnerships with several leading financial institutions, including Swissquote and Dukascopy

Like many exchange platforms, Bitstamp features a tiered fee schedule, with trading fees starting as high as 0.25% for low volume traders, dropping to as low as 0.1% for traders in the highest volume tier.
