The global war on cash and privacy continues. LocalBitcoins suddenly removed all cash-in-person offers today, without any warning to its users.
In response, we’ve reduced the trading fee on cash-in-person exchanges to 0%. From today until July 1st, you can buy or sell ETH with cash using LocalEthereum for free.
Meeting in person is one of the oldest ways to exchange between crypto and fiat, and it remains one of the safest. As long as you follow simple guidelines, it’s incredibly rare for anything to go wrong. This is because cash, like ETH and Bitcoin, is irreversible.
When trading with cash, we recommend meeting in a public place such as a cafe. If safety is a greater concern in your area, try an international airport or bank branch — somewhere with cameras and security to keep you safe.
Join more than 100,000 users and begin trading on LocalEthereum today. Being self-custodial and end-to-end encrypted, LocalEthereum is the most secure P2P trading platform in the world!
