. 3 min read

Buying, storing and trading bitcoin peer-to-peer (P2P) is incredibly popular in Latin America and we are thrilled to be working with Airtm to increase accessibility to cryptocurrency within the region. Both LocalCoinSwap and Airtm have a similar vision that focuses on ensuring that everyone, anywhere around the world has access to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin and ethereum, fast, secure and private.

Now that we have added Airtm as our newest payment method, there are two different ways that you can buy bitcoin with Airtm. Firstly, you can search for sell advertisements posted by others selling bitcoin with Airtm. Alternatively, you can post your own advertisement on the marketplace letting others know that you want to buy bitcoin with Airtm. In this format, you become your own cryptocurrency exchange as you can then promote your advertisement on social media and in your unique cryptocurrency groups to both your local community and even to an international cryptocurrency audience.

In this tutorial, we will look at the second option, how you can post an advertisement letting others know that you want to buy bitcoin with Airtm on LocalCoinSwap…

So let’s get started…

STEP 2: Post an advertisement selling bitcoin with Airtm

Next, you can post an advertisement on the marketplace that will let others know that you want to buy bitcoin with Airtm at your preferred price and in your preferred location. When other users come to LocalCoinSwap they can then look for buy advertisements, such as your own, and can then sell you their bitcoin. To do this, you need to:

  1. Go to ‘Post A Trade’ in the main menu
  2. Select BUY or SELL. In this case, we would select BUY as we want to post an advertisement to buy bitcoin with Airtm.
  3. Select the cryptocurrency you want to buy. In this case, you would choose bitcoin

  6. Next, select the limits of your trade. The trade size limit lets bitcoin sellers know the minimum and maximum amount that you want to buy.
  7. Make a selection from the 3 options to set your price. In this case, choose “Market price” as this will let your advertisement increase with the value of bitcoin. Don’t forget to click the ‘Check price’ button to check the value that you will be letting others know that you want to buy in Mexican Peso - MXN.
  8. Finally, enter your terms and conditions for the trade. It is important to include as much information as necessary to remain transparent with the users as the more transparent you are, the more people will want to sell their bitcoin to you.

Once your trade is published you can begin promoting it to your local community or to an international audience to attract bitcoin sellers.
