The Malta Blockchain Summit last week lasted for 72 hours, but a whole year would not have been enough to experience everything properly.
Malta is friendly place generally and it is also one of the most welcoming international jurisdictions for cryptocurrency projects.
This showed, as Coinmate’s head of legal, Frantisek Vinopal, rubbed shoulders with an astonishing 8,500 attendees.
The Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, is clearly a fan of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and gave his support as a keynote speaker. He said that Read more
since we like to keep you informed about interesting features of our exchange, we decided to put up a series of articles to describe some of Coinmate’s perks.
One of these is application programming interface (API). It is well known to traders whose work is automated, but it could be a great tool for all of you. Read more
Bitcoin (BTC) withdrawal options have been separated into two streams, allowing you two ways to withdraw. There is a faster way, called “high priority” with slightly higher fees. Also a standard way, called “economy” with lower fees.
High priority BTC withdrawal – this super-fast alternative is processed every seven minutes, and should allow your BTC withdrawal to be confirmed within 30 minutes.
Economy BTC withdrawal – this standard option is processed every 60 minutes. For your convenience you can see a countdown for each new batch of transactions to be sent. Your BTC withdrawal should be confirmed within two hours. Correspondingly this option has lower fees.
Question: Which crypto exchange has the fastest Bitcoin withdrawals?
Answer: We think it’s Coinmate. Getting BTC from the exchange and into your own personal wallet using our “high priority” withdrawal option is certainly among the fastest and possibly the absolute fastest way that any crypto exchange can do it.
BTC withdrawal via API
Additionally, BTC can be withdrawn directly via Coinmate’s API. This is a more advanced option which is very convenient if you want to withdraw in batches or automate withdrawals or pay with ease into different wallets. The API can be configured to make more complicated mass payouts simpler, while still being safe and having the lowest possible fees.
All week we’ve been on a high after the Hacker’s Congress Paralelni Polis (HCPP2018).
We’re proud to be a partner and thank everyone who visited our stand and agreed to wear our t-shirts. It was incredible to meet our Coinmates in person and listen to your feedback. We take on board your ideas – additional currencies are on the way.
Thank you for your positive interaction with Coinmate, it genuinely warms our hearts!
The congress is unique in our community. Art, political activism, liberation through technology, as well as business, all come together. But most of all, the atmosphere of intimacy and openness in an illustrious venue brings out ideas that benefit our whole community and, hopefully, the world.
Lastly, thank you to those who organised and contributed, from vegan food and crypto payments, to music and thoughtful discussion in the youtube studio – we observed and appreciated the massive amounts of work the organisers and volunteers put in from morning till night.
Each year, HCPP tickets are sold out months in advance – don’t miss it. We’ll see you next year.

Two currency pairs – Bitcoin Cash/Euro (BCH/EUR) and Bitcoin Cash/Czech Koruna (BCH/CZK), have been added to the exchange. Buying and selling Bitcoin Cash will have reduced fees until the end of the year.
Coinmate is committed to improving our services long-term, and to support positive developments in the cryptocurrency industry as a whole. New currencies and more enhancements will be added in the near future.
Coinmate is pleased to offer you negative fees of 0.05 per cent if your trading volume hits over three million euros over a monthly period.
This is not a gimmick or a special offer. It is now our standard policy. We believe this is a world first among crypto exchanges. We’ve always been proud of our low fees and would like to show you how we compare with other exchanges.
Standard fee comparison among exchanges
If you hit the magic three million euros monthly trading volume, then we will provide you with a 0.06% ‘taker’ and -0.05% ‘maker’ fee. Yes that’s right – we will pay you for your ‘maker’ trades.
Take a look how this compares with other exchanges:

We hope you will benefit from these changes. If you want more detailed information, please have a look at the fees page on our site.
