Our review about this Crypto Exchange Platform
Currently, there is not much information about this stock exchange, so our review is based on assumptions. We did not find any negative comments about GET IO, but one opinion was too low for the ADA currency.
“Yesterday I bought ADA in Gate.io and it was at 0.90USD than after looking at my order history the trade was closed at 2.59USD each ADA… WTF!? Than, I paid attention and noticed that has a on development advice at ADA in Gate.io and the price was flashing between 0.9 to 2.50… I bought 0.4BTC and my immediatly loss was huge and I would like to know how GATE.IO will fix that huge problem… Will I be compensated? How a under development wallet allow users to trade and pay 4x more than actual price… That smells scam and I am worried about it…. “
Below is a comment which is the forum member’s response:
“Unfortunately not a scam but a sign of a market with low liquidity. I saw someone mentioning an identical thing on another exchange. The price flickers between more realistically priced orders that quickly get eaten up and higher cost sells sitting in the background. (Edit: I should say for market orders).
The exchanges should really have a mechanism to help avoid this. Like locking in an upper limit on the price before you process the order. That way worst case is noone is buying at that price and your order goes unfulfilled.
I know the above will be of little comfort for you now, hopefully you can recoup the losses through peaks and troughs.”
In our opinion, the Exchange is technically well-built and offers many interesting solutions. You can see that transactions take place quickly and nothing jams.
Fees and wallet
The last time many Exchanges have a problem with too high fees. People turn away from them and look for cheaper solutions. However, with regard to commissions, the Gate.io exchange has little to say. There is no information on commissions on their website:
But is worth to know, that Gate.io provides wallets for all account holders for free. Click Wallet tab on the top of the webpage to access the wallet page. Then you may click Deposit button at the right side for a specific coin to generate the deposit address for that coin. They uses cold storage and a hot wallet, so your sending address for a digital asset will not be the same as your deposit address.
The withdrawal fee is deducted from the amount of asset you request to withdraw, not from the remaining balance. You can withdraw all the available balance in your account as long as the decimal places are supported.
As the creators of the Exchange promise, the minimum and maximum withdrawal limit is for a single transaction only, indicating the minimum/maximum amount they allow you to withdraw for a single transaction for a given blockchain asset. You may check it on the withdrawal page of each coin you want to withdraw. The maximum withdrawal limit is not necessarily equal to your daily limit (24h). Worth to know, that the daily limit can be raised while the maximum withdrawal limit is not to be raised. If you want a larger daily limit you may submit a ticket.
