As crypto trading becomes more mainstream, we’re seeing people from all different walks of life get involved, and not all of them are sitting in front of their laptop all day.
For many, being able to make trades while on the move can be a make or break factor when choosing their crypto exchange of choice, and exchanges are smartening up to this.
Enter crypto trading apps.
In today’s world, there’s an app for everything, and it was only a matter of time before we saw crypto exchanges add apps to their services.
Like most apps, you’ll find some that are absolutely fantastic, but others that aren’t quite up to the job.
Let’s have a look at five of the better apps out there at the moment for crypto traders!
Everyone knows about Binance, so why not start with them? The company was founded in 2017 and has gone from strength to strength since.
Currently one of the largest crypto exchanges on the market by trade volume, Binance have ambition and a committed team.
They provide a desktop app that is available for both Windows and Mac, as well as an Android mobile app.
Users of the Binance app describe it as easy to use and with a simple interface, allowing them to sell, buy, and view their personal trade history. It also allows users to access their open orders and crypto holdings.
With over 1 million downloads to date, it’s safe to say that the Binance app is a favorite of crypto traders.
When most people think of trading apps, they naturally assume that such apps are produced by the exchanges themselves.
All in, there are over 25 different exchanges available on the Tab Trader app, which has been downloaded around half a million times by users in over 150 countries.
Using the app, traders can trade using stop-loss, limit order, market order, and settle position functions over a number of crypto exchanges.
All of a users exchange accounts are managed from one handy interface.
All of a users API keys are kept on the actual crypto exchange in an encrypted form, or in the possession of the app users, so at no time does Tab Trader have access to any of their user’s funds.
The Dubai-based exchange’s mobile app is available for both iOS and Android, so it caters to the majority of the smart device-owning market.
Providing state of the art SSL security, 24/7 customer support and over 90 listed pairs, RightBTC’s app offers a high standard of analytical tools, with graphs and charts that are easy to read, as well as real-time market access, meaning instant and accurate updates of users accounts.
RightBTC has seemingly been keeping tabs on some of the issues that traders have experienced with other apps and have put together an offering of their own that seems to address many of these issues.
The app is intuitive and stable and is incredibly easy to use.
Known in certain circles as “the people’s exchange,” KuCoin aims to make crypto trading more accessible for the novice trader.
Its mobile app is available on both Android and iOS and offers many of the essential functions that their desktop website does, such as basic trading services like deposits, withdrawals, buying, and selling, as well as access to your wallet.
With over 350 coins listed at the time of writing, KuCoin is an interesting choice for those interested in obscure coins.
Despite not being able to offer services to US customers, Bitfinex is still a significant player when it comes to trading, and their mobile app reflects that.
Again, this app is available for both Android and iOS, and you can easily deposit funds and trade on the platform using it on whichever device you choose.
Being easy to configure and use is a quality that you’d be looking for in any app, and the Bitfinex offering provides that.
As mentioned, US users may not be able to enjoy the Bitfinex service for the moment, but this is still a lovely little app worth mentioning.
As the popularity of crypto trading continues to grow, exchanges will have to continually up their game and ensure they’re providing the kind of service that appeals to not only dedicated traders but casual traders as well.
A high-quality mobile app is an integral part of that strategy, and the apps chosen here are done so with ease of use in mind for both experienced and novice traders alike.
