5 of the Best Crypto Swapping Services

Creating an exchange account, signing in and placing an order every time you want to switch cryptos is like using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut. Its an incredibly inefficient way to jump between cryptos, and given that no exchange has all the coins, it necessitates creating multiple accounts, with the added verification and security risks this entails. Crypto-swapping platforms promise to do the hard work for you, plugging into exchange APIs and exchanging coins on your behalf.


Swapy

Swapy claims to offer the best exchange rate possible without the need to manually place buy/sell orders. It manages this by combining over 10 exchanges to give users more low-cap and low liquidity tokens at spot price. Currently, you can swap BTC, ETH and USDT into over 70 different tokens, from XEM and REM to BCH and DASH. All of the exchange flows to your wallet can be tracked on-screen.

Whats nifty about Swapy is that it charges a fee only on the amount users will save relative to competitor services. In other words, Swapy only gets a cut of what you save on a swap, doing away with a flat fee entirely. Holders of REM tokens can further increase their discount level by up to 90%. Account registration is necessary with Swapy, but only if youre looking to claim the maximum available discount.


Changenow

Changenow only entered the marketplace last year, but has captured a significant share of the market already. The fact that it enables purchases to be made with credit card is a useful feature thats unusual to see with crypto-swapping services. The platform enforces AML/KYC: if a transaction is marked as suspicious, the exchange is paused and the customer is asked to confirm their identity. Changenow imposes no limits on exchanges and more than 170 coins can be converted, from BTC and ETH to BCH, LTC and more niche altcoins. All transactions take under 15 minutes to complete, and a fee of 0.5% is incorporated into the exchange rate you pay.

Changelly

Changelly is one of the best-known platforms, delivering a fixed-rate mechanism that protects against the risk of market fluctuations when tokens are being swapped. Changelly claims the stability is assured by integrating a small reserve inside the exchange rate when the final quote is given to the user. This month, the platform launched an iOS app as well as a second version of its Android app, making it even easier for users to convert coins on the go.

Changelly

Changelly was founded in 2015 and supports over 150 cryptocurrencies, taking a 0.25% fee for all swaps. Youll need an email address to use the service though, and Changelly reserves the right to apply AML/KYC to certain users, addresses and particular transactions, which may deter privacy absolutists. Like Changenow, Changelly enables credit card purchases of crypto thanks to a partnership with Simplex.


Shapeshift

Speaking of KYC, Shapeshift caught flak when it announced that it would adopt a fully verified model, disincentivizing the same users who raised an eyebrow to Changellys policy. Citing pressure from regulators, the non-custodial exchange admitted that the move provoked the departure of many valuable API partners but nonetheless, it remains a viable service for some.

Shapeshift offers a unique exchange rate for each coin that changes every 30 seconds according to market conditions, but its typical miner fee is in the ballpark of 0.5%. Support is provided for 29 cryptocurrencies including BTC, BCH and DAI, and boasts one of the nicest interfaces on the market.


Flyp.me

Simple, fast and private. No registration is the strapline you see when alighting on flyp.me, and for users troubled by KYC, its music to the ears. With flyp.me, you can exchange over 30 cryptocurrencies instantly including BTC, DASH, LTC, and a bunch of other altcoins while retaining full privacy. You also retain at least a measure of control over the exchange rate: when you hit the Flyp now button, the rate is locked in for the next few minutes. Flyp.me promises to leverage several trading platforms to secure the best exchange, analyzing the market depth and liquidity of the currency in question and taking a 0.5% cut while theyre at it.
