How do I trade crypto with Skrill?

With Skrill`s Cryptocurrency trade feature, you can exchange your primary Fiat or Bitcoin balance against one of the available cryptocurrencies and profit from the price fluctuations. To start exchanging crypto create a Skrill wallet and visit the *Crypto section. Separated in three user-friendly tabs you can easily manage your portfolio, view market data, and trade.

Within this tab you can:

  • View your recent exchange activity and portfolio value.
  • View and remove items from your watch list of selected crypto-currencies.
