  1. I think Bithumb is better last year for its display on the current appeal, but I still choose Bithumb because there are many trusted coins there.

  2. I also used this exchange and so far not any problem with them. My Deposit, Trading activity and withdrawal running slickly. This is good exchange and many altcoin available to trade there, just need more volume.
