What are the other ways to buy Litecoin (besides centralized exchanges)?

In addition to centralized exchanges such as the aforementioned ByBit and OKX, cryptocurrencies can be bought on decentralized exchanges, cryptocurrency exchange offices and peer-to-peer platforms. We briefly describe each of these ways below.

  • Decentralized cryptocurrency exch anges(DEX) – platforms of this type allow you to conveniently exchange cryptocurrencies without an intermediary. This means that transactions are made directly between the wallets of users who exchange with each other. Examples of such exchanges include Uniswap and PancakeSwap.

  • Cryptocurrency exchange offices – can be available in the form of online platforms, as well as physical locations. The undoubted advantage of using exchange offices is that it is an extremely easy way to buy cryptocurrency from the perspective of those taking their first steps into the world of cryptocurrencies. On the other hand, using exchange offices involves higher fees than exchanging on an exchange.

  • P2P services – platforms of this type provide intermediary services between buyer and seller, using the so-called escrow function. An example of such a service is Paxful. Skilled users are able to find price bargains on such platforms and buy (or sell) cryptocurrencies at an attractive rate.

How to buy Litecoin (LTC) without going through the KYC verification procedure?

More and more exchanges require users to go through the KYC (Know Your Customer) verification procedure. However, there are still exchanges on the market where you can trade without going through full verification.

An example is the ByBit exchange, which does not require KYC verification if the payout is less than the equivalent of 2 BTC. An alternative to exchanges is to use exchange offices and bitmarkets, which also often offer the possibility to transact up to a certain amount without going through the KYC procedure.

To make sure that a particular exchange/exchange/bitomat does not require verification, it is a good idea to check the current information posted on the website of the respective service.

Where to hold Litecoin (LTC) after buying it?

For long-term storage of cryptocurrencies, you should get a so-called hardware wallet (such as Ledger or Trezor). There are also other options, such as exchanges and “hot wallets” (e.g. Exodus or BRD), but according to popular opinion, it is best to bet on so-called cold wallets for security reasons.
