Starting September 9th, Bitcoin.com Local, the peer-to-peer marketplace for Bitcoin Cash (BCH), is moving to LocalCryptos. This change provides Bitcoin.com Local users with an upgraded peer-to-peer trading experience while retaining everything that makes Bitcoin.com Local a great place to trade BCH.
Bitcoin.com Local users now have access to a larger pool of traders and a wider variety of cryptocurrencies. LocalCryptos hosts 200,000 peer-to-peer crypto traders in 100+ countries, and supports BTC, ETH, LTC, DASH — and now BCH! Additionally, peer-to-peer traders on LocalCryptos have 40+ ways to settle trades.
What’s staying the same
Messages on the platform are end-to-end encrypted, and trades are facilitated by the same blockchain-powered escrow service with users managing their funds in their own non-custodial wallets. Additionally, LocalCryptos does not request or collect identity documents. All you need to start trading is a valid email address.
The migration process
You can migrate your Bitcoin.com Local account to LocalCryptos in seconds here. Your trading history, reputation, and offers will remain intact, and you can login with the same password and username. Since your Bitcoin.com Local wallet is non-custodial, you’ll of course remain in full control of your funds throughout the process.
