BitBay is an originally Polish fiat-crypto exchange, that was founded as far back as 2014 and managed to stay afloat through thick and thin ever since. It did not manage so without hiccups, though: in May 2018, following a decision by its local Polish bank to cease providing services to crypto-dealing companies, BitBay was forced to shut down its operations in Poland and re-open for business in Malta, under a new legal entity but with the same operating team. User Experience-wise, BitBay has managed to develop and deploy an easy to navigate-and-use website, quick, responsive and easy on the eyes. Performance-wise, BitBay also doesn’t fall short; its trading fees are average for the industry, its systems fully operational most of the time, it boasts cheap withdrawal fees and houses significant trading volume, although only for PLN-dealing users, and only in BTC. Our main concern here is BitBay’s selection of listed coins: alongside standard big names such as BTC, ETH, LTC and their counterparts, BitBay offers a strange selection of coins virtually no-one has ever heard about. To mention a curious few: Bob’s Repair, KZ Cash, Neumark and Infinity Coin, and we believe there is a high probability many of these are outright scams. The security has has issues in the past, mostly minor user issues of issues with the authentication systems and troubles making it difficult to log in. Overall a moderate, but somewhat flawed exchange to trade on.
