About us

HitBTC, founded in 2013 by experienced system architects and technology experts, is one of the oldest and fastest growing crypto exchanges in existence. With an unparalleled track record of reliability, we offer our clients a comprehensive range of services that are accented by our smooth order execution, state-of-the-art trading terminal, and unmatched liquidity. Our exchange is the largest spot trading market in the industry with over 800 trading pairs and 500+ spot instruments supported, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, Litecoin, Tron and others.

Our platform offers tools and features that would meet the expectations of even the most demanding and sophisticated traders, enabling them to engage in real-time trading with low latency, high reliability, and peak performance. HitBTC was the first on the market to offer automated and algo traders reliable and fast REST, WebSocket and FIX API.

To maintain the security of our platform, we deploy comprehensive audited cryptography schemes with strict operational procedures as well as user-specified white lists and limits.

Our Values

Our values are based on three tenets: reliability, security, and performance. With our deep understanding of technology, economics, and finance, and by applying knowledge and innovation, we have created one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced trading platforms in the industry. Since its introduction, our comprehensive custody architecture has been an industry standard-bearer in security. We use two different types of custody: top-tier security for the top 10 currencies on the market, including all ETH tokens, and regular security for all other digital assets. Top-tier security custody is based on HDKey technology and multilevel in-house cryptography. There is a strict policy of not running third-party software, including third-party blockchain solutions.

We ensure that our traders get the best pricing on the market. We are able to do this by providing incentives for market makers and using the best and latest technology (ultra-low latency matching in LD4, London; smooth API, and an advanced reporting system). We believe in a future with digital economies and a self-sustainable internet at its core; and for many years, we have been actively creating the vital infrastructure needed for this future. Over this time, we’ve created both a product that can support millions of users and the technology to power it. We have expended substantial effort to ensure that we comply with the ever-changing and evolving regulations in the digital asset space. As part of this, we implemented practices necessary to insulate ourselves from bad actors and establish fast and secure operations (KYC/KYT/Market Surveillance/AML) in full compliance with the regulatory framework.
