General notes, as of 9/16/2021

Uphold is not a free platform. They charge a spread every time you trade.

Their pricing model is all-inclusive. The price you see before you trade, is the price you pay when you trade. Unlike many platforms, their prices are locked in pre-trade. They don’t add hidden fees between Preview and Transact, unlike some competitors.  Please check the rate you’re getting on the Preview page. Only confirm your transaction if you’re happy with the rate and accept the trade.

  • Like most trading venues, they display the current mid-market price on their charts; when you trade, you receive the current bid or ask price depending on whether you’re buying or selling. There is always a small difference between the mid-market and the bid/ask prices: it’s how order books on exchanges work.
  • We charge 0% deposit fees, 0% withdrawal fees, 0% trading commissions (but we do charge a spread).
  • Network Fees – charged when you withdraw to external crypto wallets – are passed on at cost and may vary depending on Network congestion.
