P2P on Escrow System

Once a buy order is submitted, the amount of coin specified will be reserved on the P2P platform. This means that if the seller doesn’t release the coin within 10 minutes after receiving the payment, our customer support has the right to release the coin from the reserved funds to the buyer after verification.

If you’re a seller, please make sure you’ve received the funds from the buyer before releasing your coins.

Supporting Currencies

As a trader, you can now buy and sell USDT with your fiat currency. Currently, we support nine fiat currencies: INR, VND, AUD, HKD, MYR, PHP, RUB, TWD and UAH.
