The main goal of CEX.IO exchange is to make cryptocurrencies closer to each and every individual. We are constantly moving towards this goal by improving our service and adding new opportunities on our platform. One of the largest steps we have taken in this direction is the introduction of instant buy option. It is incredibly convenient and requires minimum effort from the users to buy any cryptocurrency available on CEX.IO.

If one would like to receive cryptocurrency instantly, CEX.IO is ready to introduce the feature that allows doing so.

How Instant Buy Option Works?

Our instant purchase feature offers the customers an option to get any supported on the platform cryptocurrency in just 3 clicks.

The basis for instant buy option is the traditional FOK (Fill or kill) orders that are either completed at the very moment of confirmation or are not filled at all. It means that the users can always be sure about receiving the same amount or even more crypto at the agreed price. It is possible due to the fact that the system freezes the price for 2 minutes once the user opens Buy/Sell page.

This feature is convenient as far as the system considers the average market rate for that specific moment. Then, if the price stays the same, the order will be filled at the very moment under the agreed conditions. In case the price goes up in that period, the user will be informed about this change and will be able to decide whether the new price is appropriate. In case if the price gets lower, then the user will receive even more crypto than expected.
