Where FTX shines
Low fees: The fees for trading on FTX are among the lowest on exchanges reviewed by NerdWallet. Users of the company’s mobile app, for instance, pay no transaction fees at all (although FTX does take a markup in the form of a spread). The platform will also pay crypto withdrawal fees on many transactions.
Advanced trading: FTX promotes itself as being designed “by traders for traders,” and it provides several options that may appeal to that market. For instance, it offers margin trading and derivatives such as futures.
Where FTX falls short
Customer support: Unlike some competitors who offer live phone support even to new clients, FTX advises customers to open a support ticket with their team using an online portal.
Cryptocurrency selection: While FTX’s selection of digital assets includes many of the most heavily traded cryptocurrencies, its offerings, at 21, are fewer than those offered by other top-tier competitors reviewed by NerdWallet.
