Best Smartphone Apps For Trading Cryptocurrencies On The Move

Smartphone Apps For Trading Cryptocurrencies

Who doesn’t like to trade Cryptocurrencies on the move!

Earlier, we had talked about some of the best Cryptocurrency exchanges globally, and many of our readers requested to do a post about those popular exchanges that offers an official mobile app to trade.

Personally, I also find a mobile app easier to exchange and trade cryptocurrencies even if we are not in front of our computer. That is why I am compiling a list of top cryptocurrency exchanges that offer a reliable, official mobile app.

Needless to say, I have tested them personally. It is only after being sure that they are worth the time am I featuring those here on CoinSutra.

So without further delay, let’s look at the mobile apps that will allow you to trade cryptocurrency from anywhere in the world on the go!

Here is the quick list:

6 Most Popular Cryptocurrency trading exchanges offering mobile apps:

1. Binance

Binance mobile app

Binance is one of the fastest growing cryptocurrency trading exchange and looking at its rise and popularity, it won’t be too long before it surpasses the popularity of Bitfinex and Bittrex. You can read our full review of Binance here. Another reason users are loving Binance is its fully functional mobile app for both Android and iOS users.

Update: They also have a full-fledged desktop app.

The reason Binance tops the list is that it supports many cryptocurrencies including BTC, ETH, NEO, XRP, XVG, IOTA, GAS, and WTC to name a few. They keep adding new cryptocurrencies every few days and that is making it one of the most significantly growing cryptocurrency exchange out there.

Another cool feature is that if you are a heavy trader, you should take advantage of BNB coins which are a native token of Binance. When you trade and pay the fees using BNB tokens, you save 50% on your trading fees. This is a considerable amount of saving if you are a day trader.

In fact, when you start using Binance, it is a good idea to buy BNB tokens first to lower down your cost in future trading. Sudhir has written a detailed guide on Binance token here.  The trade volume on Binance is huge and liquidating your assets is fast and easy.

To use the mobile app, you need to create an account on Binance for which you can register here. Once you are registered, you can download their iOS or Android app and start trading cryptos from your Smartphone.

2. Gate.io

In the first week of January 2018 popular exchanges like Binance, Bitfinex, Bittrex have shut down new users registrations to maintain the quality of exchanges. This is when the Gate.io name popped up and after trying for almost 1 month, this exchange seemed to be a solid pick for 2018. The mobile app is fully functional and lets you also add fiat money using AliPay account. You can trade BTC, ETH, USDT, QTUM for any other crypto of your choice.

3 Bibox

I came across Bibox around December when looking for an alternative to Binance. This one at a glance looked like inspired by Binance but with more features and many new coins. Bibox app is also pretty smart and you can use it to trade smartly from your smartphone. One thing that Bibox is doing better than Binance is charting. If you already use the Binance mobile app, then you should try Bibox to see how it is different than Binance.

Bibox also offers a native call called BIX that can be used to get a 50% discount on the trading fees.

4. Bitfinex

Bitfinex

At the time of writing this, Bitfinex is world’s #1 exchange when it comes to volume of BTC/USD pair. They have a fantastic mobile app for iOS and Android.

Using the app, you can trade cryptocurrency and deposit funds to your Bitfinex account. Some of the popularly traded cryptocurrency on Bitfinex are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, IOTA, Monero, ZEC, DASH, OMG, NEO, QTUM, and many others.

Even though I like the Bitfinex website and use it often, my recommendation for you is to use it as a secondary option considering they don’t allow US citizens to register anymore and their alarming controversy with USDT.

One thing that anyone will particularly enjoy on Bitfinex is the quick liquidation. It does not matter what amount of Bitcoins you want to buy or sell, Bitfinex has you covered. The mobile app is easy to configure and use.

5. KuCoin

KuCoin is one of the newest and smartest cryptocurrency exchange. I have been using it for a while and they are similar to Binance but offers many unique features. The website is super fast and they have their own coin call $KCS.

Their mobile app is pretty solid and you will find all the good coins on KuCoin. They are growing fast and it’s an exchange worth joining right now. They also offer GAS for holding NEO which is offered by only a few selected exchanges like this one.

6. CEX

CEX is one of our favorite picks as they allow buying cryptocurrency using a credit/debit card. In fact, it was one of the first few cryptocurrency exchanges that I started using.

They offer a fully functional Android and iOS mobile app that makes it easier for you to trade cryptocurrency.

CEX-App

Unlike Binance and Bitfinex, CEX has a limited number of cryptocurrencies which actually helps them to offer top notch service.

The cryptocurrencies they currently support are BTC, ETH, Dash, ZEC, XRP, and BCH. There are plenty of options for the currency pair which many of you would enjoy.

You can also deposit and withdraw funds directly from the mobile app. The UI is very sleek, and CEX mobile app offers one of the best user experience while trading your cryptos on the Go!

Bonus: Mention worthy mobile trading apps

CoinTracking offers cryptocurrency management. It automatically pulls up your trade data from popular exchanges using API (It’s secure) and let you monitor your current cryptocurrency portfolio right from the mobile phone.

Something every serious Cryptocurrency investor and trader should use. The interface on the desktop is not as modern as we expect it to be, but it does the job better than any other available options.

Even though this post is about official mobile apps, you should know about two more apps that let you connect with other exchanges that don’t offer an official mobile app. For example, you can use Bittrex on the mobile phone using Tab-Trader and Ztrader app.

Tab-Trader is the most popular as it offers apps for both iOS and Android.

Tab-Trader also supports multiple exchanges such as Coinbase (GDAX), Bitstamp, ANXPRO, HitBtc, BTC-E, BTCChina, Huobi, Kraken, ItBit, Bitbay, Bter, Bitfinex, Bitmarket, Gatecoin, Bleutrade, QUOINE, Bittrex, BL3P (Bitonic), Poloniex, EXMO, Gemini, Vaultoro, Mercado Bitcoin.

This video explains more about Tab-Trader app:

Since you will be connecting to any app using API feature, just make sure you don’t have the withdrawal right to the newly generated API Key.

I understand that this may sound little technical for you now, but in the future, I will explain how to configure popular exchanges with Tab-trader or similar apps. But for now, go ahead and enjoy the top listed crypto trading mobile apps.

I would look forward to hearing from you on your pick of the mobile crypto trading apps.

Also, if you want to suggest any other app that is worthy of making into this list, do share that with me in the comments section below.

  1. Could you please let me know about cloud mining of more profitable cryptocurrencies? It would be better to tell about the only legit companies. Also post the legal description about trading bitcoin.
    Thanks..!

  2. for me binance is best
    cex very costly
    bitfinex i don trust

    what is the best wallet except [cold / hardware ] with multi currency

  3. Harsh I’ve found My Bittrex app for Android excellent, once you understand API configuration, which is not so difficult.

    1. Might be a temporary issue. pls try again and see if you have done your KYC properly sometimes they don’t allow because of that reason also.

  4. Thanks sudhir,
    My KYC is done. I am able to withdraw all other currencies except ripple. When i googled in forum it was mentioned that withdrawal is not activated yet. is it so?

  5. All of those statements are false. I live in the US. I have the Binance app (there is a very simple tutorial on the couple of extra clicks required for ios, if you click on the link in the post above. And Tab Trader works just fine in the US as well if you set it up properly. There are tons of tutorials and videos that will walk you through it. If you aren’t willing to put in the time and effort to figure it out, that’s fine. But just because you can’t figure it out, doesn’t mean it doesn’t work just fine.

  6. I registered in Gate.io for your mentioning of Fiat money deposit through Alipay and I dont see where is the option to do it, How can I do it

    1. @ErreElle
      Download their mobile app and click on account > Funds management and here you will see the option for binding your account with Alipay. Let me know if this doesn’t work or you face any issue.

  7. I downloaded the app and under Fund management the first option is to bind bank card BUT THIS is only for Banks in China then the second Option is BIND ALIPAY , but I face issues when I enter my email account (alipay registered email acc) and click submit button nothing Happen. It says “PLS fill your own alipay acc” and “Click the view below and Upload the alipay code”, I fill my info and click to the logo of alipay but nothing happen like what it stated

  8. This may seem like a silly question but am I able to buy and sell any and all cryptocurrency on the apps you listed? I wish I had seen this article a lil sooner…when searching for an app I read nothing but great things about coinbase. But it’s terrible. Fees are absurd, I can only buy (haven’t sold any thing yet bc I’ll incur more fees when I do so I’m waiting til its REALLY worth cashing in) 5 cryptos, and I can only get alerts for 3 of those 5. It’s awful. I want to be able to but whats looking good without having to pay crazy flat fees PLUS surcharges and international fees. It cost me $3 every time I buy…but I will divide my money up for the day to keep buying as it drops lower. So if I have $500 to put it, I’ll buy $100…if it drops I’ll buy another $100 and so on. But that will cost me $15 just to buy it. Is there an app that allows purchases for ALL cryptos with low fees????
