Using Exchange Platforms
Registering with an online exchange is an additional strategy. Exchanges serve as a holding company for everyone’s money.
In the same way that you would place a purchase order, you put a “sell order,” specifying the volume (amount), type of currency (such as bitcoin), and price per unit you desire to sell for.
The exchange will complete the transaction as soon as a matching buy order is placed. After that, your account will be credited with the currency.
Per-to-peer or One on one Transaction
Individual meetings between buyers and sellers are an additional method of bitcoin trading. This is easily accomplished by collecting cash in hand and scanning a QR code with another person’s phone.
While employing this technique, make sure to carry out the exchange in a secure location and verify the price for a few seconds before completing the transaction. The cost of bitcoin fluctuates.
