LocalCoinSwap allows users to buy and sell bitcoin, ethereum, tether, and other popular cryptocurrencies using a huge variety of payment methods. Most users are trading with people in their own country or region due to the ease of using a local bank transfer, but a rise in international payment methods like PayPal, TransferWise, Skrill, Western Union, Gift cards, Cash App, Zelle Pay, QIWI and more are buying and selling with people worldwide.


Regular Bank transfer
Much like sending money to a friend for your share in a taxi ride, you can send money to someone in the same country as you in order to buy bitcoin using bank transfer.

Cash Deposit
Many ATMs now allow users to deposit cash into their accounts 24/7 without visiting a bank. You can buy bitcoin with cash deposit on LocalCoinSwap for a much cheaper price than using a regular Bitcoin ATM. A quick search for Bitcoin ATM near me will show that there are generally thousands of closer regular ATMs nearby that you could use to buy and sell cryptocurrency on LocalCoinswap.
