About Poloniex Cryptocurrency

Founded in 2014, Poloniex Cryptocurrency is a global crypto-to-crypto exchange headquartered in Seychelles. As of Feb 2020, it has over 100 markets available for spot trading and offers features such as margin trading, lending, and staking. Poloniex allows users to trade on the web, Android, iOS, Websocket, and HTTP APIs.

Based in San Francisco,  California. Poloniex caters mainly to U.S based cryptocurrency traders. Nevertheless, the exchange is also proving to be extremely popular among cryptocurrency traders from all over the world. This is hardly surprising as the Poloniex exchange offers a diverse range of altcoins which can be traded on Bitcoin.

As Poloniex is a US cryptocurrency exchange, US-investors may of course trade there. But US-investors should in any event do their own independent assessment of any problems arising from their state residency. In particular, investors from the state of New York are often restricted from trading at many cryptocurrency exchanges.
