Digital Surge

Don't get caught out by hidden fees

Many exchanges hide these in their spreads, currency conversion fees and deposit fees.

Some exchanges state they charge no fees whatsoever only to sneakily take their cut by giving you a much lower rate on any given coin. Not what you want!

When choosing an exchange, be sure to factor in spreads, trading fees, currency conversion fees, and withdrawal/deposit fees (especially the hidden ones!) – they can cost you a fortune down-the-line!

Did you know that choosing an exchange with good spreads is often more important than the fees you incur while trading? The spread is the difference between the quoted buy and sell price on an exchange.

Unfortunately, many times there are hidden fees on exchanges that claim to have low or even no fees (something you will never experience with us!).

Withdrawal fees

We dont charge any fees for any AUD withdrawals. When sending coins to an external wallet, you will be charged a standard network transaction fee. The fees for each coin will vary based on how busy the network is. The current fee is displayed when withdrawing a coin.
