LocalCryptos – the peer-to-peer crypto marketplace that keeps you in control

Fiat on/off ramps • Non-custodial • End-to-end encrypted messages • On-chain P2WSH escrow • >100,000 users

LocalCryptos is a peer-to-peer crypto marketplace. The platform is a one-stop shop for fiat-to-crypto ramps worldwide, beginning with Bitcoin and ETH.

People place ads on LocalCryptos to buy and sell crypto. When two people agree on a sale, the buyer pays the fiat half directly to the seller—which is why LocalCryptos is so fast.
What separates LocalCryptos from LocalBitcoins is our non-custodial and end-to-end encrypted nature.
LocalCryptos escrows don’t involve a centralized intermediary. Like trades, all transactions are peer-to-peer. This is possible by using a set of complex Bitcoin scripts.

LocalCryptos serves more than 100,000 users worldwide with traders in 100+ countries (Venezuela being #1). It's the most popular non-custodial fiat on/off-ramp.

Before LocalCryptos: LocalEthereum

LocalEthereum launched in 2017 as the first peer-to-peer trading platform for ETH. Unlike its Bitcoin counterpart, it was private, non-custodial and featured end-to-end encrypted messages.
At the end of 2019, we changed our name to LocalCryptos to support Bitcoin & more.

LocalCryptos' features

  • Built-in self-custodial web wallets. Your keys, your coins.
  • On-chain escrow. For Bitcoin escrows, we use a set of P2SH scripts described here. For ETH, escrow uses an Ethereum smart contract.
  • Messages are end-to-end encrypted. It's impossible for our team—or somebody else—to read your messages without permission.
  • Import your reputation from LocalBitcoins. No need to start over.
  • Referral program. Refer your friends and earn 20% of fee revenue incurred.
  • Truly private. We don't ask for personal information, and you won't find any invasive trackers on LocalCryptos.
  • No downloads needed. Despite LocalCryptos being a cryptography-heavy application, it runs in any modern web browser out of the box.
  • Liquid and growing fast. On an average day, LocalCryptos sees 1,300 online users in 80 countries, and ~250 completed trades.

Fees

  • 0.75% trading fee if you respond to an ad; 0.25% if you create one.
  • No deposit or withdrawal fees.

Seeing as this is now for "Cryptos" and not just for a specific coin like ETH or BTC, I'm guessing there are also plans on adding other popular cryptocurrencies in the near future? XRP, EOS, TRX or LTC perhaps?

Yes. Over time, we'll add more cryptos that are useful and capable of non-custodial escrow.

I want to know how escrow works? I read your F.A.Q page and I didn’t find detailed information. Is it similar to bitify.com, as a third party checks the validity of all transfers?
Why don't you integrate services like DEX.AG to auto exchange between ETH and ERC20 Tokens? Trading volumes on the platform?
How would you deal if governments imposed restrictions?
Will the lightning network be supported?

Litecoin will soon be listed on LocalCryptos as it won the votes to be listed.

Votes:
LTC got 3,039 votes
Dash got 2nd with 2,043 votes
EOS got 552 votes

Any idea when Litecoin will be listed ?

.BIG WINNER!.

They have not given any Estimated time for litecoin listing on the site. I think it may take one or two months but its just a wild guess. Here is the official wording about the listing.
Quote
We're beginning development to get LTC added to LocalCryptos.

This isn't as simple as flipping a switch. When we add a new crypto, our engineering team develops a new non-custodial escrow script to fit the protocol.

Shortly, we'll announce an ETA, and we'll let you know when it goes live.
