in SteemitCryptoAcademy2 months ago (edited)

Selecting a good exchanger is the most important thing when we enter to the trading market. Since there are over 300 cryptocurrency exchanges in today’s market if we choose the wrong one the experience can be daunting. Hence, Professor @besticofinder has explained the points that we should consider before selecting the exchange we want and I believe he has done a tremendous lesson here.

The main factors he emphasizes is,

  • Security
  • User Experience
  • Geographical Restrictions
  • Fees
  • Legal aspects
  • Liquidity
  • Technologies used

He has mention 11 exchangers to his homework on #SteemitCryptoAcademy. I have chosen Kraken for the given task.

Let’s move on to the homework,

01. Visit the Kraken webpage: & click create account

05. Verifying the account

There are 03 account features available to choose in this step. You can see that to verify as Intermediate & pro you need higher requirements and Pro level takes a few days to verify. According to the requirement that we have we can select the available account feature. I have chosen the "Starter" feature since I'm a beginner.
