CEX.io is a cryptocurrency site. CEX was founded in 2013. CEX calls itself a crypto platform for buying, selling, and holding cryptocurrencies. In 2024, CEX says millions of people have traded cryptocurrency on its platform. In 2024, CEX was an all-in-one site and included the chance to study cryptocurrency.

Cex.io is safer than the average cryptocurrency site.


Similar sites to CEX include GHash, Paxful, Cloud Mining Reviews, BTC-e, MoonPay, BitPay, CloudHashing, Invity (i0), Crypto (com), and Changelly.


The homepage had a widget to buy cryptocurrency and a cryptocurrency converter calculator that let you input how much Bitcoin you wanted to buy and it would return the price it will cost in USD. At the bottom of the widget was a button to “buy crypto instantly.” When I scrolled down, there were four featured articles (45 new cryptocurrencies, CEX staking, current promotions, and how to get up to $200 in USDT bonuses). When I scrolled again, it showed data related to the crypto markets such as current crypto prices.


As of January 2024, cex.io has 1.335 million monthly views. Cex.io was founded on September 27, 2013. The Internet Archive has saved cex.io 6,820 times between September 27, 2013 and March 2, 2024.

Vibrations, Fees, and Popular in Africa

CEX.io is a high-quality website with good features. Most of my friends love it. It seems popular in Africa. You can use it for a digital wallet after you buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency. It has a vibration feature via smartphone when trading; some people like it and others don't. I don't ever use vibration on a smartphone, so I do not. CEX.io has trading fees comparable to a typical stock broker platform. This is not free trading.
