Crypto.com - Beginner friendly Fiat to crypto on & off ramp


Crypto.com

Background

Formerly known as Monaco Technologies GmbH which was founded in June 2016 by the esteemed team of:

  • Kris Marszalek, Chief Executive Officer
  • Rafael Melo, Chief Financial Officer
  • Gary Or, Chief Technology Officer
  • Bobby Bao, Head of Corporate Development


Initially this company started with the MCO token, the company aims to bring a Crypto Debit card to the market since 2017, to achieve that goal they introduced the MCO token which has recently been discontinued by their platform.

The reason being is that they want to focus on one coin which is their utility token the CRO, this is done to streamline operations and simplify the learning curve of their platform.

Platform
Crypto.com has three platforms, the crypto.com App, the Exchange and the Crypto.com DeFi Wallet (aka non custodian wallet app).

Features with each of the platforms are as follows:

crypto.com App
It is a very easy to use and self explanatory app that allows you to buy and sell, pay and transfer crypto.

                             2e1cdbbd00f473fd6bd65bf1c260af77b26d2f50971f79f4bc5dea93a086d12a.jpg                 b9d7dbbae0efa8f3430ed08cca2e8843a217444e77655626243eeee15de5215d.jpg

To fund this wallet, you can either link it with a credit/debit card, send cryptos from your other wallets into it or load it with fiat into your built in fiat wallet (at this moment it only supports USD, EUR, AUD, GBP and CAD via bank transfer)
Fees, maximum and minimum limits apply, all are available for your perusal in the Fee and Limits section in the app under the settings tab.

All this options earns you pay rewards in the form of cashback (in CRO), however please note that pay option only applies  to users who staked at least 10000 in the platform (please refer table below)

Now last but not least is the transfer option...
It allows you to deposit crypto from other sources or withdraw crypto from your wallet to other crypto.com users, to send to the exchange, to send to the crypto.com non custodian wallet or to an external wallet (non crypto.com affiliated).

                    5875d65069a47b1096f6a3c5cdf95c3a0e8d0692b9618f2dcfd9bfb6c8e7e70f.jpg                    992302397e55d73fb6657f1b281b972b1a4e0d1bdd765e993da2f70ac2109886.jpg

Transfer to crypto.com users, and cryptom.com exchange is within the crypto.com ecosystem and does not incur any fees.
However a transfer to the crypto.com Defi wallet and any other external wallet will incur network fees because the transaction is on-chain...

I will go through in details about what other perks the crypto.com app offers in a follow up post. (Click Here)


crypto.com exchange

The crypto.com exchange is CRO powered exchange which offers spot trading and margin tradings (up to 3x).
It is used to complement the app and allow traders to buy and sell crypto with the help of an orderbook to do trading in real time and to get the best deals in terms of fees.

There are 6 levels for the trading fees and 3 more VIP levels. 
It is based on your 30 day trading volume.

By staking at least 5000 CRO you get a 10 percent discount on the maker and taker fees.
By staking at least 10000 CRO and selecting to pay your fees with CRO, you will get a 20 percent rebate on your maker and taker fees (in CRO)
You can stake up to 50 million CRO to receive a 100 percent discount/rebate on the maker and taker fees.

I will go through in details about what other perks the crypto.com exchange offers in a follow up post. (Click Here)

Please note that the crypto.com app and exchange services are not available for citizens of all countries, there are certain countries which are banned from using their services due to legal issues, you will know if you are eligible for their services when you sign up.

Crypto.com Defi Wallet (non custodian wallet)

The crypto.com Defi Wallet is a non custodian wallet created by them to allow users of all countries the ability to keep their crypto in a secure platform that is only accessible to the user via their private keys. You are in 100 percent control of all your cryptos stored there. You do not need KYC and thus citizens of any country could use it without legal issues.

                                                                                       d5a1989a3f3648feaf3e6776b2948b86e7069d46cfabed9fdfef320aa7befa6f.jpg


The only disadvantage is that because all transfers to the wallet is done via on chain confirmation, therefore there will be network fees involved when you move the coins in and out of the Defi wallet.... (It is free when you move it within the crypto.com ecosystem).
Network fees varies from time to time based on demand...
Here is a table of the pros and cons of using the Defi wallet.
