Independent Reserve are great. I've used them for over a year now and they are very helpful and responsive to any questions. Highly recommended.Adam D.Google review
The quality of service which Independent Reserve provides is something that you don't find in many other crypto exchanges. Its customer service is fantastic. For a person who just started with cryptocurrencies, his customer service officer, Roger, patiently guided me along the way — highly recommended.Yim S.Google review
Great local and simple to use exchange with outstanding support. I had an issue with transferring currency between an investment platform and an exchange due to my error. Their support went above and beyond to help me out.Patrick I.Google review
Highly recommend Independent Reserve for the level of efficiency and support I've received on many occasions based on lack of experience in cryptocurrency trading on my part. On every occasion the staff have been unbelievably patient, caring and accommodating successfully resolving matters beyond my expectations! Great work guys!Eddie B.Google review
I find the level of service by the support team at Independent Reserve to be prompt, knowledgeable, patient!!! and they work with you to solve the issue. Yesterday, I was using PayId for the first time and after a few false starts, Melanie had me all sorted out. A previous issue I had with my initial purchases was also extremely well-handled. They way they handle queries, educates you and gets you off to a good start...Graham T.Google review
As someone who has integrated to over 20 crypto exchanges via their APIs, I can say Independent Reserve has the best API documentation by far.
Their customer support is also excellent which is something most exchanges sadly lack these days.Nick AddisonConsenSys
I organise and host blockchain meetups and conferences and am always hearing very positive things when it comes to Independent Reserve which is why I always recommend them.
They are by far the most trusted crypto exchange in Australia for consumer trading as well as institutional investment, and offer a great 'open order book' unlike most other Australia exchanges.Lucas CullenBlockchain developer
I find Independent Reserve to be one of the easiest, smoothest cryptocurrency exchanges that I use.
The client onboarding process was simple, it is easy to deposit funds and I particularly like the transparency of market depth and speed of execution.Claire Wivell PlaterManaging Director, The Fold Legal Pty Ltd

What is Ethereum (ETH)?
Ethereum is a global software platform powered by a decentralised, open-source blockchain. It is designed to be scalable, secure, and sustainable. Commonly known as a “world computer”, Ethereum is essentially “programmable money”.
Ether (ETH) is the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain and is used as a utility token to pay gas fees when processing transactions on the network. As a digital asset, ETH is also a store of value and is used as a form of payment. Ethereum (ETH) is the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation and is the most widely used blockchain in the world.
Ethereum is a game-changer. The most revolutionary feature of Ethereum is its native support for smart contracts. Ethereum’s founders’ intent was simple: to develop a platform where anyone can create and host their own decentralised applications (dApps). Developers can build dApps on Ethereum and write and execute smart contracts to run them. These digital contracts can be used to exchange value and represent the transfer of ownership of assets over the blockchain, like cryptocurrencies and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). Smart contracts are a powerful tool that gives Ethereum a real-world use case. To invest in Ethereum you can buy ETH from Independent Reserve.
The Ethereum vision is to create a digital future for the world. Its cause is noble. Its mission: “grow Ethereum until it's powerful enough to help all of humanity.”
