This doesn't make any sense. Most sites that sell bitcoin via a Credit Card actually sell bitcoin and are not actually an exchange. The difference in the exchange rate is profit for the site in exchange for taking the risk of credit card fraud.

Yes & No - we got 2 services
1) an exchanger, where people usually buy bitcoins with a credit card and pay high fees https://indacoin.com/change
2) a trading platform, where people can exchange bitcoins & litecoins with each other https://indacoin.com/trade
And the exchanger is connected with the trading platform. So when our clients buy bitcoins through exchanger, in fact they execute a buy order on our trading platform. And as far as customers who use exchanger don't care much about the price, people who sell bitcoins & litecoins through our trading platform, got good profit

Margin trading might be interesting, however you need to have large base of users in order to achieve attractive interest rates.

....and it can seriously decrease BTC price as we ve seen during this last BTC crash.

I think arbitrage is generally profitable if you choose your moment right.

It s all about the difference in price in liquidity. I really wish I have the time to follow Chinese exchanges, lots of potential there.

Wouldn't it be extremely risky to have large amounts of money in exchanges that could get shut down at any moment such as huobi?

Sure, ask yourself this question: is it extremely risky having large amount of money into something intangible and unregulated as Bitcoin? It can simply disappear tomorrow and nobody would be able to anything about it.

Efficient arbitrage becomes possible when you are able to maintain sufficient levels of cryptos/FIATs on as many exchanges as possible. Also automation plays an important role, meaning the possibilities to integrate with a given exchange via API.

Last but not the least is the availability of various deposit/withdraw methods for your FIATs and also the time which an exchange requires to process your deposits/withdrawals. It's crucial for moving your funds between exchanges.

Hey guys,

I have been involved in Bitcoin arbitrage for several months now and it has been quite profitable. For those of you unaware how this works, arbitrage is the process of taking advantage of BTC price difference between BTC exchanges. In other words, purchasing Bitcoins on the exchange with the lower price, and re-selling those same coins on another exchange and profiting through the difference.

I did some arbitrage on my own  last year when there was a huge spread between Mtgox and Bitstamp Bitcoin prices, in some cases between 5-10%. The main problem was how to move BTC and/or fiat between different exchanges and the fact that in order to reduce the arbitrage risk to a minimum one needs to be able to buy BTC on an exchange with low price while selling the same amount of BTC on another exchange with high price AT THE SAME TIME. Recently, the spread between exchanges is not so wide anymore but there are a lot more exchanges, so there is still a lot of money to be made on this.

Have you ever performed arbitrage on your own, were you successful, what was your biggest problem, please share your experience.

I am interested in this, but can you tell me when is the right time to sell it ?
I just don't know how to decide it!

I looked into arbitrage a few years ago but found it to be nice as a concept but doing it in reality has so many drawbacks,price change,time of transfer,fees etc

In the end i went a different way and found something profitable to the tune of about 2-2.5% per sat move against altcoin btc pair per trade.I tried telling ppl about it as i was looking to sell it but at that time noone actually beleived it was possible mathematicly so i was stuck with it.Poor me

Arbing just wasnt for me,not in crypto anyways

What do you mean by this exactly? Moving bitcoin to altcoins in order to make a profit essentially?
