Buying crypto to fund your Deriv cryptocurrency account just got easier with our new fiat onramp services. In this article, we’ll go through what a fiat onramp is and how it works.
Significant and rapid price fluctuations of cryptocurrencies present many opportunities to profit from them, and if you plan to take part in the crypto action, keeping up with the latest trends is essential. One way to jump onto the crypto bandwagon with Deriv is to trade with crypto, as it gives a great opportunity to gain more crypto while trading on your favourite markets.
Before you can start trading with crypto on one of our platforms, you’ll first need to own some. And if you see an upcoming opportunity to profit on one of the markets, you certainly don’t want any delays in funding your account and opening your first trades. The easiest and fastest way to fund your Deriv crypto account is to exchange your fiat currency for cryptocurrency. This process has become much easier than before with fiat to crypto exchange services, also called fiat onramps.
What is a fiat to crypto exchange?
Fiat onramps are services that create a bridge between fiat currency and crypto on the trading platform of your choice. They allow you to purchase cryptocurrency in exchange for your fiat deposit, helping you get your Deriv crypto account ready for trading on our platforms quickly and efficiently.
Onramp services are available globally, no matter where you are in the world, and they handle the entire exchange process. It can be a perfect solution if you want to start trading with crypto but don’t own any. On Deriv, you can trade with Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT) Omni, Tether (USDT) ERC-20, and USD coin (USDC). Once you create a Deriv cryptocurrency account, the digital coins you buy through our fiat onramp solutions will be deposited directly into it. There is no need to create a separate cryptocurrency wallet.
