There are two major trading security measures on remitano to ensure a secure trading, viz:
- Reputation system
The reputation rank of each trader is made public; this includes their trade history, how fast they complete their transaction, and how a seller has been rated by a buyer.
When any user-buyer or seller-opens up a transaction, Remitano Escrow Service hold the funds until either buyer or seller performs his own part.
My trading experience on remitano
I had smooth trading on remitano. However, ensure that your btc wallet address is correct before sending it to the vendor you’re buying from. Once transaction is executed on the blockchain, it’s irreversible.
Remitano vendors are responsive to trade with.
Sometimes it takes longer time to respond to an inquiry. When chatting with remitano support team, stick to one ticket, that is when you opened a chat with one of the online support team, be patient till he/she responds to your inquiry.
Opening two or multiple chats at a time is likely to get the support team confused.
Trade responsibly, cryptocurrency investment is volatile. Don’t invest what you can’t lose, that’s one of the crypto investment advise I can offer you.
