Coinexchange.io Review – Altcoin Exchange

Coinexchange.io is a virtual currency exchange aiming to support as diverse a range of altcoins as possible. Indeed, if you’re not a true crypto currency buff, you’re likely to find dozens altcoins you have never even heard of at coinexchange.io. Obviously, the stated goal of the operation is to provide a safe and secure environment for the trading of these altcoins as well as for the launching of new altcoin-based ICOs. While the operation looks clean and legitimate, a closer look at the community chatter hosted by sites, such as bitcointalk.org, will reveal a few issues, the gravity of which isn’t entirely clear. Let’s not cut ahead of the chase though, and take a look at the coinexchange.io site first.

CoinExchange.io

As far as promises go, coinexchange.io doesn’t trigger any red flags. There are no too-good-to-be-true promises made and the operation doesn’t float any crypto currency mining and cloud mining schemes.

When it comes to the “About us” section of the site though, the spot where we should learn specifics about the corporate entity behind the operation and its licensing status (if any), we are treated to a rather disappointing listing of goals and mission-definitions. There are no specifics. For an operation that intends to become “a pillar in the online crypto currency market place”, that just won’t do…One has to know who he/she is dealing with.

CoinExchange.io - About Us

What exactly does coinexchange.io offer though and what’s the source of the negative feedback out there?

If you ever need to pick up a few UFOcoins, Antimatters or Aspers, coinexchange.io is your destination. The operation features trading on a staggering array of such crypto currencies (for the full list, see below), and it offers information and a more or less official Bitcoin exchange rate on every one. The problem is however that when the crypto currency market explodes into this myriad of currencies conjured up from thin air by who knows whom, some missteps are bound to happen. Namely, some of the ICOs associated with this market will inevitably end up going belly-up and scamming some investors.

A clear example in this regard is GMB (Gambleo), an ICO aimed at working out a currency to be used for various online gambling and sports betting activities. Although it has never been elucidated whether coinexchange.io was indeed directly involved with the GMB fiasco, some investors hold the operator responsible. Other such ICO fiascos have happened at coinexchange.io too.

Another oft-decried coinexchange.io problem used to be their steep withdrawal fees, which have since been sweetened somewhat.

IQ Mining

What’s slightly more disturbing about the operation though is that it’s completely anonymous. The website itself is registered by NameCheap Inc, so there’s absolutely no personal identity linked to it in any shape or form. Such an approach leaves ample room for an eventual scam-exit, should the people behind it all decide in favor of such an unsavory move.

The domain was registered in 2016, so it’s relatively new. Its domain authority score is 24 out of 100 and it has a slight spam score too, of 2/17. CoinExchange.io is slightly popular at the time of writing, especially in the US. According to Alexa, they also get significant traffic from India, Italy, France and Spain.

How exactly does coinexchange.io handle your funds though and what should you know about deposits and withdrawals?

Depositing your coins with the operator is easy enough. All you have to do is to head to your coinexchange.io account and to the “Balances” section, under the “My Account” tab. Locating the coin you want to deposit is easy through the search feature: just start typing the name of the coin or its ticker symbol in the search field. Once found, click the Action tab, and then “Deposit.”

To generate a wallet address to which you can send your coins, click the “generate new address” button. Once the actual transaction is done, you can check the status of your deposit under the “Deposits” tab. Some digital coins may take longer to show up in your account than others.

Most deposits should indeed show up within 10 minutes. If they take longer, clients are advised to use a block explorer to see where their coins are. If the deposit still fails to settle in 30 minutes, a support ticket can be opened with coinexchange.io.

Coin withdrawals work in similar fashion to the above-described deposits to a certain extent.

Once again, you are required to go to the “Balances” section of your “My Account” tab, and to locate the coin you want to withdraw. Then click the Action tab and Withdraw. Once done, type in the amount, provide a wallet address to withdraw to and your password. The “Process Withdrawal” button sets the wheels in motion. To confirm the transfer, you will have to head over to your email and click the link provided in the confirmation email there. The status of your withdrawal can be followed on your  “Withdrawal” page.

DaxRobot

You can cancel a requested withdrawal before clicking the confirmation link in the above said email. Once you’ve clicked that link, the withdrawal can no longer be cancelled.

Upon logging into your coinexchange.io account, there are a number of things you can do to make sure the process goes smoothly. First of all, make sure you’re using your username and not your email address. Check the registration email you have received upon sign-up, if you’re not sure what your username is.

Check the reCaptcha checkbox. If you are still unable to log in, reset your password and try again.

Upon registration, do not click the confirmation link twice. If you do, you will be presented with an error message. If you receive the said message, just ignore it and log into your new account.

CoinExchange Review Conclusion

Community chatter at bitcointalk.org showcases the fact that people don’t really know where to put this operation yet. Some are quick to call it a scam, while others gripe about the high withdrawal fees and still others voice their contentment with coinexchange.io. From the above analysis, it is clear that not everything is as it should be with this crypto currency exchange.

DaxRobot

Update (December 20, 2017): We have continued keeping an eye on Coinexchange.io following the posting of our review, and we have to say we don’t really like the way the operation is shaping up. There’s more and more negative feedback flowing in regarding the operation, and many people are quick to scream “scam.” While some of these complaints are later sorted out, as the issues turn out to be delay-related ones, this is no way to run a crypto exchange. For this reason, we’ve decided to downgrade the rating we initially gave the operator, and no longer recommend it as a trusted crypto destination.

While most of the complaints are indeed delay-related, some people think that the entire setup is a fake one, including fake orders, fake bids, fake sales, robots used to generate bids, and of course, it does not help when people have their cryptos locked in their wallets for weeks, on account of “maintenance.” Coinexchange.io support is not helpful either. Whether these guys are actually stealing crypto funds or not, we cannot yet tell, but what’s certain is that no reputable and serious operation should ever generate this sort of clap-back from its user-base.

    Coinexchange is holding our customers coins as ransom. They do not wish to resolve issues logically. They only want things their way, even if unreasonable. I want to know what country they are located in!

  2. John Jansen

    I hear so many negative reviews here, but I wonder why and whether they have any ground. I am quite an active cryptotrader and I use Coinexchange as one of my main exchanges. Never had any issue here!!! Which is quite different compared to many others.

    OK, I agree, it looks a bit like the msdos among the WIndows and IOS operating systems, not so fancy. But if you look further, it is more than fine! And yes, they offer coins that you should stay away from. But if you buy them, blame yourself and your (lack of) research, not the exchange.

  3. Plys86

    Attention. Do not make deals on Coinexchange – they steal money. I bought STRONGHANDS – SPRTS and made a transfer to my local wallet. Several translations have passed, but one exchange Coinexchange has not missed, answered that there was no confirmation by e-mail. On the balance, the money did not return – those. support does not answer. I lost 100 million SPRTS

  4. ccointrading

    Like others on here, I’ve had a deposit to my COINEXCHANGE address never get credited to my account. DO NOT USE THIS SITE.

    After looking in to the issue, COINEXCHANGE randomly takes deposits from it’s customers using temporary addresses which they assigned then remove from customers.

    The scam works like this:

    1. COINEXCHANGE creates an ETH address when you click “generate” on your account (these are likely from a premade list)

    2. You then send your ETH to this address on your COINEXCHANGE account

    3. the address is removed from your account once the first transaction clears

    4. the ETH is immediately transferred from the “assigned” address to their holding account.

    At the time of this writing. the COINEXCHANGE holding account has close to one million US dollars from this scam. In my example, their address is 4b01721f0244e7c5b5f63c20942850e447f5a5ee … see for yourself.

    Contacting customer support is futile. They will run you around in circles, wait weeks to respond, then tell you that you made a mistake because the address is not on your account (they removed it after the deposit).

    I cannot stress this enough: DO NOT USE COINEXCHANGE. If you have been scammed, forward your information to law enforcement for the country you reside in.

    Crypto currency is having a hard enough battle at being accepted without criminals like this taking advantage of people.

    Beware of Coinexchange.io…… it’s a scam and most of the new altcoins on coinexchange are fake as well, they want you to buy useless lowrated fake coins to collect more money from new members… that’s their goal.
    I am waiting for 11 days to get a response on an open ticket…… coinexchanger.io are amateurs with fake website and unknown coins with no value….. BEWARE OF COINEXCHANGE.IO

  7. byeo

    @CoinExchangeio

    It had been 3 days since I had sent the ETH to the CoinExchange ETH wallet, it had been over 16000 confirmations in explorer but it is still pending on the CoinExchange balances page. I had also sent support ticket (#56793) which had not helped.

    I stupidly joined this site to buy some of the newer coins as I couldn’t get them on any other exchange. I deposited my ETH, it was accepted within about 5 minutes. After spending a couple of hours on trying to decide what to buy I changed my mind and went to withdraw my ETH. Well that was 5 days ago, I have tried to withdraw probably 20 times. The site says it will send you a confirmation email to withdraw. That email never ever comes. I contacted support, they just ticked it as resolved pretty much immediately. I have contacted them a few more times, they just completely ignore you. They ignore your comments on their twitter page also, if you want to see how many people they are ripping off just have a look at their twitter. To any people saying it’s a great site, lets see how good you think it is when you want to withdraw your funds. This site is a SCAM and they nothing but thieves…

  10. krammig

    Created an account.
    Received a confirmation email, however the link in the email goes to a 404 error page.
    Tried to create a Ticket – on submitting a message is received –
    The page you were looking for doesn’t exist.

    Is this site actually legit ??

  11. James Amey

    Scam Alert !!!!!!! I purchased SHND with bitcoin for the lowest asking price and my order went through. My account says net worth is around what i paid for it. When i do the math its greatly reduced from $1000 to $50. But my account still says its worth $1000. If i go to another exchange and pop in the amount its worth $50. I tried selling for lowest possible offer and it doesnt go through, its still pending.

    • Marc Hickman

      When the B3 coin hit on saturday I sold all the coins i had for 1.7 Bitcoin today is tuesday and my sell is still pending. Thats over 14k I’m waiting on, please tell others not to join this site due to unnatural business practices.

  12. Directeur Général

    pure scam, with shit coins (scam coins) , you invest in coins and you instantly loose your money cause you cant reclaim it or even sell it, I lost a bunch of money with them , tried to expain to customer service but they obviously aware and in a partnership with all the scam coins in this website, when you trade a good coin expect to have a closed wallet or any type of bug…just remove your money from there asap they are going down sooner than later!!!

  13. DaxRobot
  14. satoshi

    I found that Coinexchange is completely scam.
    When I placed a order at lower price, the site froze and they didn’t confirm my order even if I clicked a confirm button many times. On the other hand, When I placed a order at a highest price, they confirmed my order very quickly, and what is worse, I tryed to sell at higher price, it didn’t work, but I was able to sell at lowest price so easily.
    I’ll never send coins to this site.

  15. Ray

    This is a scam!! I repeat a scam!! They steal coins, their support is just a front to provide ‘service’. BEWARE, do not change your coins here.

  16. Maria Donna Abiera-Woodcock

    I think I should leave a comment due to all the ignorance here. To all those seeking if this exchange is any good, go read other sites that review it. This one here seemingly disagrees with other review sites which put it as a good exchange.

  18. William

    These guys are either incompetent or this is a scam.The xzc wallet has now been in maintenance mode since the 3rd of December.The support staff just provide a canned response of “They are working on it , unable to provide a ETA”.Then they close the call.If you push the response is “Sorry we cannot help you”.What is very disturbing as that while this wallet is in maintenance they allow trades , so if you are willing to scam somebody else you can sell your xzc and get the bitcoin out..I will hold on, but I suspect I have been had.

  19. Ninja

    From the coinexchange.io
    The operator is an as*hol*, I wrote a ticket to say that wanted ask a question on wallet recovery.
    He locked me out of my own account with money inside! Hes internet worse crook ever!
    Dont trust this site. take my word.
    I have no power on his site but here at least if your lucky enough to read this , trust me., hes a darn careless crook!
    This site should go down! take out your money FAST!
