How do I input a quote to buy or sell?

First click the “Trading” tab on the left hand side of the page. You will then see three dropdown options. The first one, please select the digital currency. The second, please select a price or RFQ (Request for Quote). The third, please select if you are going to buy or sell. Then fill out the amount of digital currency or the USD equivalent you are interested in buying or selling.

What are your fees/commissions?

Genesis does not charge a commission on any transaction. Rather, you will be quoted a spread to the XBX Index that is competitive with the market. The price quoted is net to the customer and there are no additional fees charged by Genesis.

How does settlement work?

Settlement occurs on a post-trade basis. This means all digital and fiat currencies are exchanged after a trade is agreed upon. Genesis does not custody customer funds, so there is no need to prefund an account.

What forms of payment are acceptable?

Genesis will only accept Bank Wires. Credit cards, debit cards, or cash will not be accepted.
