Changelly (changelly.com) is a cryptocurrency site. In 2024, Changelly offers the chance to trade cryptocurrency for a 0% service fee in the app. In 2014, Changelly allowed trading over 500 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin.

Changelly.com is as reliable as the average site for trading cryptocurrency, though it should try to remove the flags from VIPRE or Gridinsoft on VirusTotal.
