      What is Bitstamp?

      Bitstamp is a centralized cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Luxemburg.

      Founded in 2011, Bitstamp is one of the oldest exchanges in Bitcoin trading. It provides reliable trading of cryptocurrencies based on a proven track record and a mature approach. The exchange was originally based in Slovenia but moved its registration location to the UK two years later due to a lack of adequate financial and legal services in Slovenia. Unfortunately, the UK crypto market has fallen short of the expectations of Bitmap's founders since the lack of guidelines and regulation for cryptocurrencies. In order to reassure customers about the security and legitimacy of the exchange, Bitstamp finally settled in Luxembourg, a crypto friendly and regulated country. In April 2016, the Luxembourg government granted Bitstamp a license, allowing it to be fully regulated in the EU as a payment institution. Currently, Bitstamp serves more than 4 million users worldwide with a daily transaction volume of $800 million.
