1BTCXE is an open-source crypto exchange platform that allows its users to buy Bitcoin using 30 different fiat currencies. It aims to provide more comfortable and more reliable trading.
The steps below will help you on how to start trading Bitcoin on 1BTCXE.
To start, open the 1BTCXE site.
On your screen click the “Register” button which you can find on the top or lower left of the page.
Type in your preferred email address and default currency, tick on the ‘Agreement’ and ‘I’m not a robot’ boxes, and once done click Register.
You will receive an email with your username and temporary password.
Here is a sample email from 1BTCXE which contains a username and password.
There you go! You have successfully created an account on 1BTCXE.
Next in line is to change your password. To do this, log-in to your account using the username and password you received.
Choose a secure password and make sure that you’re the only one who knows about it. Type it in the ‘Change Password’ and ‘Confirm Password’ fields, then click the “Set Password” button.
Nice work! You have now your new password.
What is 2FA?
Two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, is an extra layer of security or added protection which we refer as multi-factor authentication. Not only the username and password are required but also a piece of information that only a user possesses. This process is to confirm a user’s claimed identity.
The 2FA process helps lessen the number of identity theft cases and as well as phishing via email. It would be harder for potential intruders to gain access and steal someone’s identity and personal data without that piece of information that only the account owner knows.
In the case of exchanges what the user has are his/her login details such as the username and password. The form of 2FA that a user possesses for this instance is a token or code. The code can be received either through SMS on a user’s mobile phone or via applications like Google Authenticator or Authy.
For this step, we will show you on how to enable 2FA using the Google Authenticator app. Go to the “Security” section located on the left side of the screen, or you can also click the ‘security page’ link.
Check this if you want to learn more about Google Authenticator.
The first thing to do is to download the ‘Google Authenticator’ app on your smartphone which you can find on your ‘Play Store’ app. Click “Enable 2FA” to go to the next page.
To authorize the action, you will have to check your email and follow the link received.
Click on the ‘Authorization link’ that is in the email. The next 2FA set-up page will open, and from there you can continue with the process.
Open the ‘Google Authenticator’ app on your smartphone and scan the QR code. Alternatively, you can also enter the ‘Secret code’ provided. This action will add your 1BTCXE account on the app and generate a 6-digit code. Enter this code on the “Your Token” box and hit Validate.
Below is an example of a 6-digit code.
Great! Two-Factor Authentication is now active on your 1BTCXE account.
To provide users the convenience of 30 different fiat currencies on a single account, 1BTCXE decided to partner with Crypto Capital Corp. As such, funding your 1BTCXE account will require you to create an account with Crypto Capital. You will then link it to your 1BTCXE account so you can make a deposit.

After creating and funding your ‘Crypto Capital’ account, we will now associate it with your 1BTCXE account. Do this by clicking the ‘Add Account’ button.
Here, you will be asked to enter your Crypto Capital Account Number, Description, and Currency. Confirm that all information is correct especially the Currency. Failure to provide the Currency correctly will result in a conversion fee. If everything is validated, click on Add Account.
Here you will see the success of adding your Crypto Capital into your 1BTCXE account. You can now proceed and make a deposit.
