Top 6 Altcoin Exchanges you may Have Never Heard of

In the world of cryptocurrency, there is no shortage when it comes to different trading platforms. There are so many exchange platforms a lot of people have never heard of. While that list is a bit long to mention in one go, we have listed six different smaller exchange platforms most people may not have heard of. Always do your own research when trusting these companies with your cryptocurrency wealth, though.


One of the many smaller Chinese exchanges goes by the name of DABTC. This platform generates a respectable amount of trading volume for all of their listed currencies. Speaking of which, they support mainly smaller cryptocurrencies, but also Bitcoin and Litecoin. All of their supported currencies can be traded directly against the Chinese Yuan. It is an interesting little platform which is slowly climbing up the ranks, by the look of things. However, their $800k worth of trading volume will need to improve.

5. Allcoin

Very few people will have heard of Allcoin, even though the platform has quite a few interesting trading markets. Allcoin supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, ZCash, Ethereum, and a select amount of alternative currencies. Their BTC/USD and BITC/CNY trading pairs are nice to see, although the latter one is not seeing all that much volume. All of the support non-Bitcoin currencies can only be traded against Bitcoin, for the time being. With over $3.13m in trading volume, Allcoin is on the right track.

4. Exmo

The Exmo platform has gotten a few mentions in the media over the past few years, albeit nothing major. Despite the uphill battle against larger exchanges, Exmo is doing quite well right now. The platform supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Dogecoin, and Litecoin. There are fiat currency markets for all coins except Dogecoin. It is quite interesting to note the platform’s ETH/BTC market seems to be quite popular these days. Exmo generated over $2.7m in 24-hour trading volume.

3. Cryptopia

People who actively trade (unknown) altcoins will know the Cryptopia platform all too well. It is one of those smaller exchanges where new coins can get listed pretty quickly. Cryptopia generated over $3m in 24-hour trading volume, which is rather impressive. All supported currencies are traded against either Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, or USDT. It does not appear the platform offers direct fiat currency trading, although that is not all that surprising.

2. Liqui

Making one’s cryptocurrency exchange stand out from the competition is not an easy challenge these days. Liqui is on the right track, as they generated over $8.2m in 24-hour trading volume. The company supports a wide range of different currencies, which are traded against Ethereum, Bitcoin, and USDT. Liqui was one of the first exchanges to list the Basic Attention Token, which is generating a large portion of the platform’s trading volume.

1. Livecoin

With over $17.2m in trading volume, Livecoin is not the smallest cryptocurrency exchange by any means. They also list a growing amount of different currencies, which is good to see. Interestingly enough, these currencies can be traded against fiat currencies, such as the US Dollar, Euro, and the Russian Ruble. It appears to be quite an interesting exchange to keep an eye on moving forward by the look of things.
