Coincheck Review

Coincheck offers margin trading as well as many other services for their customers. Coincheck is a market place and they do not sell the currencies themselves, they simply facilitate the deals between buyers and sellers in a safe way.

They accept bank wires both in USD and JPY, as well as credit cards deposits. Once verified, you are able to purchase 10 000$ worth of Bitcoin per day. Japanese bank transfers are free and international transfers are 25$. Their credit card fees are not fixed, and thus we recommend you use another way ot deposit on Coincheck. Wallets are included in the account. Unless you are living in Japan, you are required to submit to a very extensive verification process. Coincheck is your best alternative if you are living in Japan and wish to buy Bitcoins with your credit card. It is also viable for users of many other Asian countries. If you live in Europe or North America, there are easier exchanges to use. You can find them in our exchange section.
