What is Ethereum?
Ethereum is both a Cryptocurrency and decentralised computing platform that enables developers to build decentralised applications (dapps) through the use of Smart Contracts and their native coding language Solidity. The token, ETH, acts as the currency for the platform and is also used as transaction fees for miners on the network.
New Zealand's trusted crypto exchange
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.
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 exchange in Australia for consumer trading as well as institutional investment, and offer a great 'open order book' unlike most other Australia exchanges.
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.
