  1. Poloniex is also good for trading digital currencies, but Bithumb is even better ter its user interface, and last month Bithumb also updated its look even more sharply te color.

  2. Yes the Bithumb is good since then the graphics are beautiful and it’s just quick to get it right here because you’ll know it’s down and the rise of the picture so it’s effortless to learn new-comer here so I think it’s just a puny kwestie te this because you need to verify an account so you can withdraw trading.
