xBTCe is a cryptocurrency exchange founded in 2015 and is headquartered in Charlestown, Nevis in the federation of Caribbean islands Saint Kitts and Nevis. The venture was started by experienced traders, financiers and crypto enthusiasts. The xBTCe platform offers "liquidity aggregation" that provides orders from various external providers for a 'tighter' order book, whilst allowing large-volume trading.
The digital assets platform offers a variety of major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and fiat currencies; US dollar (USD), Euro (EUR), Pound Sterling (GBP) and Japanese Yen (JPY).
The main web platform features adjustable graphs and customisable data feeds through 'chart layouts' which is likely to put off those with little experience in cryptocurrency trading, and find the vast quantities of data streamed intimating.
The exchange is currently unregulated and "xBTCe does not provide services for United States residents."
xBTCe was listed and promoted as a 'partner' in 2016 to the legally troubled and now defunct BTC-E exchange.
