DSX review & testimonials (updated 03.2020)

DSX user interface: the home page in English

What is DSX in a nutshell? It's maybe not the most popular, but respectable, well established, exchange service (trading platform) supporting some popular crypto: you can exchange these using the website. Exchange service started the business Dec 2014, it's a fully compliant, licensed financial company. Besides the cryptocurrencies exchange, DSX also provides other services, for example, Fiat to Fiat Currencies Trading & Exchange.

This service works with a number of currencies, banks, and payment systems. Hence to estimate the fees level we calculated an average fee you'll spend for an exchange here. Based on this number (1.7%) we may say that DSX charges low fees: 0.8% — 2.6% (according to our statistics, 97% exchanges take higher average fee) and has medium buying limits: $10 — $1,500 (in accordance with the statistics we've collected, 83% exchanges have higher order limits). This Trading Platform welcomes customers from 252 countries (unfortunately, your country: United States is not supported at the moment; but there are good alternatives). Due to regulatory restrictions, US citizens and residents are not served by the exchange. Unfortunately we couldn't yet collect enough data about the order processing speed from the customers of DSX, although according to the information from the exchange itself, order processing is automated and should be instant. You will have to verify your account (ID Verification, Phone Number Confirmation, Address Confirmation, Card Verification should be normally required) before being able to use the service.
