LocalCryptos Integrates Crypto-to-Crypto Swaps

The most popular non-custodial P2P marketplace has teamed up with ChangeNOW to bring you Crypto-to-Crypto swaps directly from your LocalCryptos wallet.

Since 2017, traders of LocalCryptos have been able to buy and sell cryptocurrencies for fiat privately and securely. However, until today the platform lacked a native way to swap between cryptos.

For example, if a user wanted to sell Bitcoin but only had Ethereum in their wallet, they would have to manually move their ETH to an external exchange to swap them for BTC, then bring the Bitcoin back to LocalCryptos. It is a hurdle many of you have had to bear with. But not anymore!

Starting August 3rd, users of LocalCryptos will be able to swap between current available cryptocurrencies — BTC, ETH and LTC — in a seamless, user-friendly way, thanks to ChangeNOW’s crypto exchange service integration within the platform.

How To Swap Cryptos

The process is very straightforward:

  1. In your Wallet tab, click on the big Swap button, then click on New Swap
  2. Choose the pair of cryptos you wish to swap
  3. Enter the amount you want to send (or click the “Max” button to fill in your total available), and review the amount you’re going to receive
  4. Agree with ChangeNOW’s Terms of Service, then click Next
  5. Select the address you want to send cryptos from, set the network fee you wish to pay (hint: LocalCryptos already selects a recommended fee for faster processing, so you can just leave it as it)
  6. Hit the Transfer button

And presto! Once the swap is completed, you will see your cryptos in your wallet.
