Bitkoin Africa Trade Charges

We have a Trade Posting Charge of 0.5%. Here's what you should know:
  • We only ever charge users that create Trade Postings.
  • Users are only ever charged 0.5% of the cryptocurrency amount they actually sell or buy via their Trade Postings.
  • When you create and activate a Trade Posting to sell, we add the 0.5% to the maximum amount you intend to sell and put the total in your escrow balance. When other users buy any amount of cryptocurrency from that Trade Posting, we take 0.5% of the amount they bought from your escrow balance.
  • When you retire a sell Trade Posting, we move the remaining unsold cryptocurrency plus 0.5% of that, back to your available balance.
  • When you create and activate a Trade Posting to buy cryptocurrency and another user sells to that Trade Posting, we take 0.5% of the amount they sold before crediting your available balance with the difference.
