Research. Crypto Exchange Fees: A Head-to-Head Comparison

Today’s crypto investor has more options available than ever before - from thousands of currencies to hundreds of exchanges and wallets to choose from. We understand that the sheer abundance can be overwhelming for anyone.

But not all exchanges and wallets were created equal. Some were created with a seamless user experience in mind, while others are more focused on keeping costs low for customers. Then there are the ones that bear the customer in mind in all aspects - to make crypto investing fun, painless AND cheap.

This is why we decided to perform a comprehensive analysis of OSOM, Delta.App, BlockFolio, Bit4you, Bitstamp, Coinbase and Coinomi.

Comparison: Exchanges and Fees

All of the services but Delta.app and BlockFolio allow for the use of Euros to buy and sell on it. However, when looking at the numbers, OSOM easily offers the cheapest exchange rate for an exchange with a wallet - 1.5% flat.

Coinbase, Coinomi and Bit4you charge upwards of 1.5% to 10%, and that does not include additional fees. OSOM also charges 0% in deposit fees, while Coinbase, Bitstamp, and Bit4you fees start from 2% to 5%.

OSOM also charges 0% in withdrawal fees for your Euros, while Coinbase, Bitstamp and Bit4you all charge for this service. The same goes for withdrawal fees for crypto - OSOM takes 0% - Bitstamp and Coinbase charge fees. OSOM’s fee is arguably the lowest fee in the market for a wallet that features such ease-of-use.

Just in case you are looking for an OSOM Exchange: We offer free deposits, free withdrawals, there is only one flat 1.5% conversion fee. With OSOM, you can buy and sell BTC and ETH without surprises. Now on iOS, Android and Web. Details.

Added Feature: Portfolio Aggregation and Analytics

Coinbase, Bitstamp, Coinomi and Bit4you don’t offer any portfolio aggregation and analytics services. OSOM is the only one offering free unlimited wallet connections, while Delta.App charges 59.99 Euros a year for it.

OSOM also offers unlimited exchange connections of 16 exchanges (and counting!). Although OSOM does not offer portfolio analytics and multiple portfolio tracking, these two features are currently in the works and will be coming very soon.

Choice. While Delta.App and Blockfolio cover between around 3000 to 8000 coins, OSOM covers all the cryptocurrencies offered on the 16 biggest crypto exchanges.

Built-In Crypto Wallets

Of all the exchanges we assessed with wallets, only Coinbase, Coinomi and Bit4you offered support of ETH, BTC and other cryptocurrencies. Meanwhile, Delta.App and BlockFolio do not come with a wallet. Bitstamp only allows for storage of funds on their exchange. And finally, OSOM is the only other wallet currently supporting BTC and ETH, with much more support coming soon. OSOM's wallet is also the only one that is custodial but non-omnibus.
