Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 1

Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 1

Hola Compadres! It is me u/poop_dragon here with another guide. Today I would like to run through a list of ETH exchanges. This is just Part 1 of this list, and it covers established exchanges. Soon I will post Part 2 and 3 which will go into some other types of exchanges (derivative markets, coin converters, decentralized, and foreign exchanges) Side note, I have given rating to these exchanges based on some comparisons, news, and information which I have found online. Recently, EVERY exchange has been slow/unresponsive in their customer service due to the huge influx of new users. My intention is to help educate new users about the exchanges available. I am not trying to discredit, advertise, pump up, or damage reputations. If you feel something is inaccurate, please respectfully bring it up in the comments. I will be editing as we go. Last thing of note, I have only included the lowest level trading tier to calculate trading fees, which assumes the highest rates. Most exchanges offer lower fees for bigger orders, but I have gone with the assumption that everyone here is not dropping whale amounts of cash.

Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges – Part 2

A little late, but as promised here is Part 2 of the Beginner’s Guide to Exchanges. I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support and feedback in making these.
Link to Part 1
This time I also made a Google Docs survey in the hopes of sharing the results with the community. I thought we could share what we use as a whole and why redditors choose the exchanges they do. For skeptics (as you all should be), I assure you that I am not collecting personal information. This is for recreation and if you are still wary, then by all means abstain!

06 – Fiat Exchanges – South Korea

안녕하세요 여러분! 혹시 우리 한국인 친구 이 보고서를 한국어로 읽고 싶어한다면 알려주세요. 관심이 많이 있다면 간단한 한국어 보고서도 만들 수 있습니다. This year, ETH has taken off like a rocket in the Land of the Morning Calm. With a population of just 50 million, South Koreans account for almost 30% of daily ETH trade volume. Even more surprising is that currently the daily volume of ETH is about 5 times higher than that of Bitcoin on Korean exchanges. Since demand is high, ETH is trading at a premium on Korean exchanges. Some users have been talking about capitalizing off this imbalance by trading on arbitrage between exchanges. For those who have no connection to Korea and hope to do so, I have bad news – all Korean exchanges require a National ID number and access to a Korean bank account. This makes Korean exchanges virtually closed to Korean nationals and those with long-term visas. Sorry everyone.




07 – Fiat Exchanges – China

With a great deal of anticipation, major Chinese exchanges started trading ETH this summer. Since these exchanges deal huge volumes of Bitcoin already, naturally it was expected that they invest heavily into ETH as well. So far this hasn’t quite lived up to the hype with many exchanges still favoring Bitcoin, Litecoin, Altcoins, and even Ethereum Classic (Gulp). Three of these exchanges underwent inspections by the Peoples Bank of China earlier this year and will be working closely with the government to ease fears of money laundering and market manipulation. There are a lot of Chinese sites, and since my Chinese is non-existent this list is basically just for name recognition. In many ways these sites are very similar in regards to security, verification, and fees compared to their western counterparts; just marketed at a different audience and currency. If users are seriously interested in these exchanges and making reviews, please contribute or ask!

Why You Should Have Mobile Payments in Your App

Hey /gamedev,
I think everyone knows the importance of IAPs. Found this article that might be helpful (full article here). Hope ya'll find it helpful.
Ever since our smartphone’s displays started growing, the number of people using them for different purposes started growing with them. Interestingly enough, we also started measuring how long we used our phones and for what purpose, and realized that the time we spent in apps has also grown dramatically. At this point, there’s no questioning that we live in a mobile-first world.
Accordingly, we also have begun to like to use our smartphones to buy things. Last time we checked, more than a third (39 per cent) of people used their smartphones for shopping.
Now, when we combine that knowledge with a few educated assumptions that both the number of smartphone users, app users, and the percentage of those using the device to purchase things will continue to grow, it brings us to a simple conclusion that there is huge demand for mobile payment.
Ever since 1999, when Ericsson and Telnor Mobil allowed us to buy movie tickets with our mobile phones, the rush towards a better, more reliable and more convenient mobile payment solution never stopped. Already, in 2009, there have been close to 100 million people making purchases via mobile devices, and once Google joined the bandwagon in 2011 by releasing Google Wallet, there was no turning back.

Why we like mobile payment

The reasons are simple, and are pretty much the same as they’ve always been – we humans like our payment systems fast, convenient, safe and transactional. On the other hand, big mobile players like Google and Apple saw an opportunity to make extra profits by tapping into the mobile payment industry. You already had the device in your pocket – they only needed to show you how to use it.
Mobile payment has significantly altered digital payments, in two big ways. First – a couple of new devices were created, some exclusively for that purpose – like the contactless payment card (first one issued byBarclaycard in 2007), or the smartwatch (sure, it has other uses too, but mobile payment is arguably at its core).
Second, mobile payment has made us focus greatly on security – prior to mobile payments, security (and this is particularly true for smartphones and mobile phones) revolved around passwords and PIN codes. Today, we have fingerprint scanners, iris scanners, facial recognition technology, two-factor authentications everywhere, you name it. We’ve learned, and we’re still learning, how to keep our digital assets secure.
This second point is quite important, too. Today’s smartphones basically hold our lives together. We don’t need to remind you of all the things you have on your phone, and unless you keep it safe, you’re in for a world of pain. That’s why it is so essential to implement mobile payment correctly.
From this intro, we can conclude two things:
  1. Mobile payment is everywhere, and if you’re not in on the action, be sure your competitors are. Mobile commerce is currently worth $230 billion, and by this time next year, will most likely hit $700 billion. This is a race you don’t want to finish last in.
  2. Mobile payment must be implemented correctly, or else. Fail to implement it properly, and you can end up being elbowed out of business completely, ruining your image and UX in the process. It really is that serious.

Tapping into mobile payment

Deciding to add mobile payment to your apps is the first, and probably most important step – but the journey can also be involved and perilous. At the core of building a proper mobile payment system for your app, are four elements: Trust, User Experience, Security and Platforms.


If we had to triage everything, and just focus on one element of the mobile payment system, this would be it. Without trust (especially in the post-Snowden world of today), nothing else matters. You need to have a system people can trust, and you can (and should) achieve that by focusing on:
  1. Transparency – Be completely open about which data you are using, which permissions you’re asking for and why, and give your users total control over both data and permissions. You can actually make them work for you – not against you.
  2. Communication and error feedback – Remember that time when you paid your bills via mobile app, but weren’t completely sure if the transaction went through or not? Remember how calling your provider and finding the right person to confirm this took ages, and how upset and annoyed you were? Making this process as seamless (and rare) as possible is the way towards your customers’ hearts

User Experience

This really should go without saying, but the user experience (UX) will determine if people will come back to your app or not, and if they’ll be willing to recommend it to their friends and family. If for no other reason, than for this Avanade report, Customer Experiences and Your Bottom Line, which basically says that for every extra dollar you invest into customer experience, you can expect three back.
“Almost half of those surveyed have experienced increased customer loyalty over the past 12 months by prioritizing a customer experience strategy,” Scott Anderson, Chief Marketing Officer at Sitecore said when they announced these results.
So what makes a quality user experience for mobile payments? Think about how you like your mobile payments to be. You’d most likely want them to be:
Obviously, with such an important and big element to any app, things like bugs, errors and crashes are bound to happen. Constant monitoring and optimization of your UX, through qualitative analytics, will allow you to quickly spot and eliminate any issues. App analytics can often be confusing, giving you a bunch of numbers that you can’t really put to good use. Qualitative analytics can literally put you in your users’ shoes, helping you better understand the hows and the whys of the complete user experience, from first contact, to the last one.


Third make-or-break element of implementing a solid mobile payment solution is security. Remember the Anthem hack, back in 2015? How about the eBay one from 2014? Target one from 2013? JP Morgan Chase? Sony Entertainment? LinkedIn? Home Depot? MySpace? Data breaches are everywhere, and some reports out there suggest that there isn’t a single company out there safe, regardless of its size, or business type.
Sure, a data breach can cost you serious money. It might take time to get your app back up and running. It might cost a little extra to do all the forensics in the aftermath. It will definitely cost a little extra to fix all the holes you failed to patch up in the first place, not to mention settling any lawsuits which might come flying your way if you compromised user data (especially if that data is money-related).
But it’s not just money. A compromised mobile app can ruin your reputation, and in the long-term, that can be even more devastating. For example, this CSO report says reputational damage following a data breach is real, and its results might be hard on your bottom line. Just look at the chart below.
A OnePoll survey of 2,000 consumers says that 86 percent were ‘not at all likely’, or ‘not very likely’ to continue doing business with a breached company. We can argue that no one is ever completely safe, and that could be true – which is why having continuous quality assurance is essential. Scrutinize your security as much as you can, and constantly keep an eye out on it. Only by staying vigilant and implementing proper security initiatives/safeguards can you keep your users safe and grow your business.


Finally – the only actual “dilemma” in the article is whether to use a pre-existing mobile payment platform, such as PayPal or Stripe, or to go with your own, developed from scratch. Both ways have their pros and cons, and should be chosen depending on your current financial, experience, and manpower situation.
By going for a pre-existing platform, you can skip the long and tedious task of coding, and let people who’ve been ‘in the zone’ for quite some time now do the heavy lifting for you. But – it comes with a price, and as long as that price is lower than what you’d need to pay for a team of developers, security experts, compliance experts, user experience analysts and testers – go for it.
Pre-existing platforms automatically handle the following key issues:
*Security *– Measures such as SSL certificates, or HTTPS will already be taken care of. They’re extremely important as it’s known that consumers won’t buy through unprotected apps.
*Anti-fraud compliance *– Payment Card Industry Compliance, Data Security Standard, or PCI-DSS. According to this blog post by Yalantis, becoming PCI certified can take months. If you’re interested in getting your app’s payment system up and running as fast as possible, you should avoid building it from scratch.
*Feature variety *– From a user experience point of view, this is essential. Big players offer a wide variety of features – that can be various types of payment (one-time or recurring, for example), different types of authentication (tokens, for example), or analytics and reporting. Creating and adding new features every once in awhile can take up a lot of your time and resources.
Those are the key elements a pre-existing platform can help you with. The heavyweights in this industry are PayPal, *Stripe *and *Braintree *(owned by PayPal). The difference between them is in the features they offer, their pricing, and the ease and speed of integration.
For software developer Pete Keen, the latter is ‘pretty important’:
“Having a pre-made integration or a reasonable API is important for getting payments up and running as fast as possible,” he told Thinkapps.
Let’s take a look further at what these platforms have to offer:




PayPal comes with the biggest number of features, which is why it’s often the most popular choice, especially among companies. A standout feature is the ability to send money to multiple recipients at the same time. Other features include:

Do not forsake your mobile payment

Mobile payment has become huge, and it’s just a matter of time before we can’t even remember how it was to live without it. Adapting the new technology now, and doing it properly, means you’re securing yourself a brighter future. But it is essential to do it right – otherwise things can get real ugly – real fast. Carefully choose if you’d go for a pre-built platform, or your own.
Consider the elements above – trust, user experience and security. There are many SDKs out there that promise an ‘effortless’ and ‘seamless’ implementation process, but it can be challenging to “manage the entire process within the context of the app without making it complex, or buggy,” as TechBeacon’s Erik Sherman puts it.
