Bitcoin Price (USD): 853.48

BitReview prides itself on delivering the most in-depth and objective bitcoin exchange reviews in the market.  If you would like the cliff's notes, we are particularly partial to Coinbase and Circle for US-based users due to their exceptional professionalism and security provisions, as well as the simplicity of account opening and free and convenient bank transfers.  Those who prefer a more robust trading platform should check out bitfinex, which lacks local payment options but offers greater order types and margin trading.  

For European users preferring btc/eur exchange, pride of place goes to Kraken, a superior trading product with a serious executive team and local payment options.  For those located in the UK, uncertainty has prevented exchanges from consumating local banking partnerships, which greatly undermines the establishment of GBP denominated exchanges.  However, HMG is extremely keen to provide a safe harbor for fintech in general and bitcoin in specific, and we anticipate market liberalization to allow greater freedom to exchange bitcoin locally.  The Canadian market has recently become a battle ground among competing exchanges, with Cavirtex, QuadrigaCX and CoinTrader representing a clear top three for customers.
