What gap did ChainEX identify?

The gap we identified was a lack of fast support, efficiency, uniqueness, and innovation. Most importantly, listening to and hearing you as our users. ChainEX provides fast, real-time, and efficient support. Our telegram channel has team members ready, willing, and able to respond to questions in minutes.

We offer different unique order types that no other exchange in the country offers. We’re currently the only exchange in South Africa to have listed coins such as Bitcoin Vault, SUSHI, YFI & UNI.

What are the ChainEX milestones?

  • We partnered with OKEx, one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges.
  • We have a very rewarding and lucrative referral program.
  • We added different, unique order types. Specifically our accumulation and distribution order types. It’s like having your own little trading bot trying to distribute and accumulate certain coins. We’re currently the only exchange in South Africa that does that.
  • We launched our quick buy and quick sell feature in 2020. It allows you as traders to execute trades and orders instantly and efficiently.
  • We launched our Bitcoin Vault (BTCV/ZAR) Markets in 2020. We’re the only cryptocurrency exchange in South Africa to offer BTCV/ZAR.
  • Our mobile app is on the Android Playstore and will soon be available for IOS.
  • We’ve made Our maker fees non-existent. It’s at 0%
Okay, we’ll stop
