Who doesn’t like to trade Cryptocurrencies on the move!
Earlier, we had talked about 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 crypto.
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 Crypto mobile apps list:
6 Best Mobile Crypto Trading Apps:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
