Frequently Asked Questions

Is it better to keep crypto in a wallet or exchange?

It is safer to keep crypto in your own crypto wallet. Remember, not your keys, not your crypto! Elbaite has adopted a unique approach to creating a safe and secure trading environment for traders looking to buy crypto. When traders use our Australian crypto exchange, they have full control and access to their tokens at all times, as Elbaite does not hold onto any cryptocurrency during the transaction process.

We also provide a better and safe experience for traders by first verifying a seller's crypto transfer via the Blockchain (TxHash) before releasing a buyer's transferred funds to the seller. Traders can then hold their crypto in any wallet of their choosing and experience no withdrawal fees.

Which crypto exchange is best in Australia?

While there are many popular Australian crypto exchange markets out there, no one is as passionate about cryptocurrency as the team at Elbaite. As a non-custodial exchange, we do not hold your cryptocurrencies and allow you to unlock financial freedom via our secure platform. Unlike other crypto exchanges, we offer traders the freedom to use any crypto wallet to conduct trades, giving them more control over their digital assets.

We want to accelerate cryptocurrency adoption, so we've worked hard to develop one of the most secure platforms. We are also an Australian-owned and operated platform with access to various cryptocurrencies in our marketplace.
