KuCoin is consistently ranked among the top exchanges in the CoinMarketCap’s Top 10 centralized exchanges ranking. The exchange was launched in September 2017 in Hong Kong, and has now surpassed 8 millions of registered users, covering 207 countries and regions across the globe, according to KuCoin’s official website.

The token is also ranked in the TOP 100 cryptocurrencies. A large number of trading pairs combined with high liquidity and relatively low commissions deservedly attracted attention of traders from all across the world. Let’s review the platform in more detail, its features and other goodies.

KuCoin commissions and fees

9

It is rather expected that a top-level exchange has an adequate level of commissions and a deliberate discount system in the form of a loyalty program for the holders of KuCoin Token KCS.

Initially, the whole 12-level fee schedule looks a bit too sophisticated and not very clear to understand, but it essentially comes down to two key points, which are calculated every time based on the information for the last 30 days.

  • KCS Holding amount over the last 30 days;
  • Trading volume over the last 30 days (in BTC);
  • Additional discount is provided for payments made in KCS (similarly to BNB on Binance).
KuCoin Fee Review

Overall, there is a strong similarity to BINANCE. The withdrawal fee and the minimum amount are fixed, but individual for each cryptocurrency.

For example:

Fee KuCoin Bitcoin
BitcoinBTC = 0.0004 BTC,
Fee KuCoin Monero
MoneroXMR = 0.001 XMR,
Fee KuCoin Ethereum
EthereumERC20 = 0.004 ETH,
Fee KuCoin Dogecoin
DogecoinDOGE = 20 DOGE,
Fee KuCoin Binance Chain Native Token
Binance Chain Native TokenBEP2 = 0.01 BNB.

You can view the list of conditions for each level here. Also there, using the search feature, you can quickly find the coin you are interested in by using the Deposit&Withdrawal Fee Rate tab.

KuCoin deposit fees overview

Here’s what we have on commissions and fees in general: no fee is charged on deposits, and there is a possibility for substantially reducing the expenses, regardless of the trading volume, by using KCS (on average -20%). If you are planning to trade large volumes or use high trading frequency, starting from LV5 Maker's commission becomes zero, and after reaching LV8 you receive a rebate – return of part of the transaction funds in the form of a negative commission.

Pros
Zero deposit fee
Additional discount on fees paid in KCS (an average of 20%)
A possible to receive a rebate
Payment of part of the funds withheld by the exchange to the users holding KCS
Cons
It is not possible to perform Fiat transactions directly

Non-trading commissions and fees

Except for the deposit and withdrawal fees, we have not discovered anything unexpected.

Average commission compared to the competition

KuCoin Binance HTX (Huobi)
Taker 0.08% 0.06% 0.09%
Maker 0.02% 0.05% 0.08%

To be fair, KuCoin offers some of the best conditions for withdrawal of funds and cryptocurrency trading. Specific withdrawal conditions are determined by the currency you want to use for withdrawal, but the average fee is 0.1% of the amount, and if you are holding KCS on the account – a low 0.05%.

Margin lending

Everything is quite simple and clear about the margin. Also, bonuses are often awarded following registration. We got a $500 coupon at 0% interest for a term of two weeks. Interest is charged per each hour and in included in the total amount of debt, which is shown in the Liabilities box in the Margin Account:

KuCoin margin lending

For convenience, Debt Ratio is shown, updated every 5 seconds. When the debt ratio reaches 95% a user receives a warning (a text message and an email with the warning is sent depending on the security settings). When the debt ratio reaches 97%, a forced liquidation is triggered.

KuCoin reliability and regulation

9
Registration Seychelles
Founders Michael Gan and Johnny Lyu (CEO)
Owner Mek Global Limited

The exchange is not regulated by the official authorities.

Location of the resource in the jurisdiction of the Seychelles holds a number of benefits for the organizers as well as the users, but it’s not all so straightforward. The exchange is not regulated by the official authorities of major countries, which lowers the total score for reliability.

In terms of technical security, it is known that the exchange was developed in strict compliance with the standards of the financial industry. In simple words, data encryption and security is at the level of a bank. At the operational level, there are risk control units responsible for introduction and observance of the strict rules of data use.

The exchange guarantees the security of its clients’ assets by using autonomous cold servers. Additionally, the transactions must be confirmed on the independent secure hubs. According to the information provided by customer support, KuCoin storage combines several levels of encryption, escrow services and cold storage. Furthermore, the company never avoids passing regular audits.

Onchain Custodian, a provider of custody services for safekeeping cryptocurrency, works with KuCoin since spring 2020, and Lockton, one of the largest private insurance brokers, stand out among the official partners of the exchange responsible for security and safekeeping of the assets.

KuCoin Hack

On September 26, 2020, KuCoin suffered from hacker attack resulting in a heist of crypto assets in the amount of approximately $280 million (mostly Bitcoin and Ethereum). Upon gaining access to private keys to hot wallets, a hacker performed several quick transfers. As soon as the hack was discovered, deposits and withdrawals on the exchange were blocked and the funds remaining on the hot wallets were transferred to new ones, while the exchange continued to work. All in all, the cold wallets were not affected and over $200 million of the stolen amount was returned to the users within a month. The rest was covered by the insurance, as the exchange reported in February 2021.

Passive income on KuCoin

9
  • Bonus for holding KCS, the so-called cryptocurrency cashback. KuCoin was one of the first exchanges to introduce this method of ‘financial gratitude’ to its users. Inside the system, these rewards are called KuCoin Bonus. The bonus is paid once a day and its amount is proportionate to the number of KCS coins held in your account. Naturally, the more KCS coins you have on your deposit, the higher the bonus will be. The process is automatic and does not require any actions from the user, which is an added bonus. Important detail – the minimum number of coins on your account to be eligible for the bonus is 6 KCS.

  • Staking
    (POOL-X Earn) – thanks to a special algorithm, KuCoin users are now able to earn profit for holding their chosen cryptocurrency on their account. How to use it: Access POOL-X platform at POOL-X and choose the currency from the list. For each coin, the percentage of its yield from staking and the minimum volume required are specified. After deciding on the program, select (or buy at the exchange) and register the required number of coins. Pool-X also supports POL (Proof of Liquidity), which is a decentralized zero-reservation credit based on TRON’s TRC-20 protocol. This provides an opportunity to earn a bonus for holding coins and tokens (annual yield is up to 15%, while minimum deposits are extremely low).

  • Lending
    (KuCoin Lend) is a system of providing cryptocurrencies on a loan to other users. The key requirement is that the chosen asset should not be traded while it is put up for lending. The creditor earns a return depending on the interest rate after the borrower places an order for a credit. As for the benefits, there are no commissions and risks, while for most major cryptocurrencies the average annual return rate ranges from 8% to 12%. In terms of drawbacks, this section on the website does not have a Russian translation.

  • Referral program.
    Of course the platform supports a referral program to attract new users. And there is a special feature in it as well. There are three levels for an ordinary user; initially the exchange transfers part of its commission earned from the new user, who registered using a referral link (you can see your referral link by moving the cursor to the circle of your profile and choosing Referral Program from the pop-down menu). The user whose referral link was used is awarded up to 40$ of the commission paid by the referred user and those he refers.

    If you have a blog on social media with a rather large audience, you have a good chance of connecting to the program on special conditions, earning 50% of the commission. Most importantly, in the traditional referral program, the bonuses are awarded only for the first year of active trading of your referrals, while in this program, the bonuses will be paid without time limitations (in other words, for as long as the user your referred trades).

An interesting detail about KuCoin exchange

Looking at the daily trading volume of the exchange (at the time (the day) this article was being written it was nearly $2 billion), you can imagine rather large bonuses just for holding this coin in your wallet. However, you can find rather angry reviews of the “great mathematicians” online claiming that the “exchange scams everybody and steals our money”. It is all about the peculiarity of such a feature as rebate (negative commission, which is available at the exchange starting from LV8). If you go from viewing percentage directly to money, this type of bonus, which is received by a specific client for his trading transactions, is deducted from the total amount of commissions and fees. Though rebate is available only on the spot market, it is available to those clients who have VERY big trading volumes and can quite substantially impact the total amount of the commission collected by the exchange in terms of percentage. Therefore, purely mathematically, having only 24h trading volume, it is simply impossible to calculate the exact amount of the commissions and fees. Still, personally I like this approach, which some call a cashback analog from the crypto exchange. In any case, it really proves that the exchange addresses the needs of the users, which gives optimism and hope for further success of KuCoin Token and the KuCoin platform.

Residents of which countries can trade at KuCoin exchange?

The exchange is available in more than 200 countries across the globe, including Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, European countries, Australia and the U.S.. However, despite general availability in the U.S., there are no KYC services, which imposes a number of restrictions. Also, the platform does not work in New York since it does not have BitLicense. Therefore, if you are in the U.S. or another country with strict regulation of crypto exchanges, we recommend that you first clarify the actual status for your region and only then make the decision about how to register. Based on what we managed to find out, KuCoin is not available in Bolivia, Iraq, Cuba, and some other countries. Residents of the CIS all have access to the exchange.

How to open an account on KuCoin:
a step-by-step guide

The registration at the exchange is entirely online and does not require a lot of time. It comes down to several simple steps, specifically:

Step
1

First open your email, which you will be using for the registration and then access the exchange’s official website: www.kucoin.com

Registration on the KuCoin exchange
Step
2

Select your language, provide email address, come up and enter a complex password, made up from at least 10 symbols. You can link your phone right there, but it is not a mandatory action, which is currently available to mobile operators from 22 countries. In any case, you can always do it later in the Security Settings tab in your already registered account.

Opening an account on the KuCoin exchange

If the password turns out to be not complex enough, later you will see the following message:

KuCoin account

This means that you will have to repeat the entire procedure – getting the code sent to your email (+entering captcha) again. So make sure you come up with a good password right from the start.

Step
3

Click on the Send Code button and then open the message in your email, and copy the code, which looks like this:

KuCoin Registration
Step
4

Next, go back to our registration form, paste the code into the corresponding box and click on the Sign Up button!

Registration KuCoin

There, you’ve registered!
Usually, you will see a welcome message and an offer to get a bonus.

Account on the KuCoin exchange

As a bonus, we got a coupon for up to $500 at 0% for one week.

Bonus on the KuCoin exchange

This registration is enough to start trading, and if you add your phone number for SMS or Google Verification, you will be able to deposit/withdraw funds with some restrictions.

The website features a short video, with a simple video tutorial in English on how to pass KYC verification. Also, in the FAQ, there is a step-by-step guide. By the way, although support is available in 14 languages, it is certainly better to use English if you want to resolve your issues for sure. The requirements for the documents are rather standard and mine were accepted on the first attempt (for example on Binance I had to take photos of my documents and send them again, and a selfie more than 5 times, and every time I had to wait from 1 to 4 hours).

KYC Pros:
  • Increase of the daily withdrawal limit from 2 to 200 BTC;
  • Purchase of cryptocurrency with a credit/debit card;
  • Increase of leverage to 100x on futures trading.

The program consists of the basic verification KYC1 and extended verification KYC2. For KYC1 you need to provide your country of residence, First Name and Last Name, select the type of the document (foreign passport, ID card or driver’s license), specify its number, read and agree with the Guide for User Identity Verification.

For KYC2 you need to upload a photo of the front and back side of the ID document, a portrait photo of you and the document, and also a piece of paper with your signature, dynamic code and a handwritten date. Make sure that your face is clear and the information on your document is legible.

Minimum deposit

You need to keep in mind that KuCoin is a cryptocurrency exchange, which means that you cannot deposit fiat money to your account. However, you can use reliable instruments for purchasing cryptocurrency.

KuCoin Binance HTX (Huobi)
Minimum deposit $1 $1 (for trading Spot 10) $1 (for trading Spot 20)

Account types

The account type is determined by the account name.

Main Account
is exactly that – the main account used for holding, deposit and withdrawal of cryptocurrencies, payment of commissions (if you use KCS, that's where they will be) and P2P trading. Also the funds resulting from purchase of cryptocurrency with a debit/credit card and margin lending are credited to this account.

Trading Account
the assents from this account are mainly used for transactions in cryptocurrency spot trading;

Margin Account
as you can deduce from the name of the account, the assets on it are used for margin loan and margin trading. The tokens transferred here can be used for trading with leverage up to 10x;

Futures Account
is an account for trading futures. The cryptocurrency assets transferred here can be used for trading with leverage up to 100x. However, keep in mind that futures is a complex financial instrument and we recommend that the beginners refrain from using such contracts.

Pool-X Earn
is an account for staking.

Transfer of funds between your accounts is almost instant and commission free.

For some languages, it is highly likely that a machine translation is used, which can lead to the wrong understanding of the question or response
Communication channels

KuCoin provides 24h customer support for its clients by a competent team using the following communication channels:

  • Live chat on the website
  • Email
  • Ticket system

In addition, the number of participants on social media is growing steadily. At the moment, the following is available in Russian:

  • Telegram channel (Russian) – nearly 9,000 followers
  • Facebook group (Russian) – over 500 followers
  • Vk group – over 4,500 followers
  • YouTube channel – 14,500 subscribers

A good and rather detailed section of FAQ can also be added to the aforementioned list of the support the exchange provides.

KuCoin FAQ
Customer support languages:

Despite that the exchange claims to provide support in 15 languages, including Russian, Italian, French, Turkish and others, as you correspond with the support team you get a strong impression that the support uses machine translation. Therefore, I would recommend using exclusively English for these purposes. Other than that, the exchange is one of the platforms that enjoys rather frequent positive reviews about its customer support, which reacts quickly and competently in most cases.

Bonuses and promo

9

The exchange awards gifts to all new users at every stage: right after the registration, after activation of the trading account, opening of a margin account, etc. The bonuses are awarded individually. For example, after registration we got a coupon for margin crediting with a low interest rate - $500 at 0% for one week.

KuCoin Bonus Coupon

In addition, you can always see all available bonus offers after registration in the More tab, which features the pages of Prize Draws, Token Listing, Promos, Latest News and Announcements.

Summary

9

Summing up this review, I’d like to say that KuCoin is deservedly considered one of the TOP exchanges. It is very friendly to the beginners, providing prompts and reminders before all important actions and quickly reacting to the questions for customer support and giving pleasant bonuses. At the same time, low level of commission, excellent selection of instruments for analysis and general platform performance create beneficial conditions also for experienced traders.

Creators of the exchange work continuously to offer something new, also quickly adopting successful experiences of the competitors. High daily trading volume, a multitude of cryptocurrencies and the Coingecko trust score at 9/10 (September 2021) prove that KuCoin deserves the right to be among the leaders.

KuCoin was hacked in 2020 and therefore, there is an experience of how the exchange acts in this situation. Let me remind you that all users were returned the stolen funds (the majority of the stolen funds was found and returned to the exchange and the rest was covered by insurance). This makes the exchange one of the most reliable companies that protect you as a trader.

I appreciate the strict structure and order on KuCoin's platform, especially in terms of its security measures, which align with my need for control and reliability. However, I find the variety of options somewhat overwhelming at times, reflecting my preference for straightforward and decisive actions. The customer service has been efficient in my experience, which is crucial for my expectations of direct and immediate responses.

I appreciate KuCoin for its broad selection of crypto assets and advanced trading features. It's a platform that caters well to the needs of serious investors looking for depth in market analysis tools. While I find the security measures to be robust, the customer service experience leaves room for enhancement. Nevertheless, KuCoin remains a top choice for those prioritizing variety and trading capabilities.

The platform is user-friendly and has a helpful community. However, customer support response can be slow at times. KuCoin is a great exchange with low fees and a wide selection of coins.

KuCoin is my go-to on my travels. Offers flexibility and variety, though the mobile app sometimes lags. Perfect for those who live a digital nomad lifestyle.

Diving into KuCoin, I'm like a kid in a candy store! Love the variety of coins, though sometimes it gets a bit techy. Overall, a solid platform for geeks like me.

Mobile app is convenient to check prices on the go. I'm pleased with this exchange for altcoin trading. I was searching for an exchange with low fees to buy altcoins and KuCoin turned out just great. The variety of trading pairs is impressive, many small cap gems are listed here. I managed to get some promising DeFi and metaverse tokens for my portfolio. withdrawals are fast and fees are low.

The exploration of KuCoin's ecosystem reveals a lacuna in the integration of ethical trading practices. Emphasizing on transparency and fair trading protocols could substantially elevate their stature in the crypto community.&quot;

In perusing the annals of crypto exchanges, one may bypass lengthy discourses such as the KuCoin review. Yet, questions persist: Does the 'People’s Exchange' moniker signify a truly democratized platform?

KuCoin is truly an international exchange. The diversity of coins and trading pairs, combined with an intuitive design, makes it a top choice for me.

Always check KuCoin's &quot;Spotlight&quot; for new token launches. You can often find hidden gems there. Just remember, high rewards come with high risks.

As a finance major, I see KuCoin as a real-world laboratory where I can test theories I've learned in class. It's challenging and enlightening at the same time.

As a housewife, I find the world of crypto intriguing. KuCoin seems user-friendly but there's a steep learning curve.

I've been using KuCoin for a few months now and I'm really impressed with the platform. It's so user-friendly and practical - I never have any trouble navigating or finding what I need. I love learning about new cryptocurrencies and the information on KuCoin is always up-to-date and informative. I appreciate that the platform is constantly improving and adding new features, it really shows that the team cares about its users. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my experience on KuCoin and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable and easy-to-use exchange.

The thing is that they continue to unlawfully hold customers’ margin assets hostage for a week now. They affirm they warned people that this could happen at the merge but what they did not tell is how long the hold will last. This is wrong. The exchange continues to tickle users’ ears asking to &quot;be patient&quot; yet unless users have the ETHW they can’t unfreeze their funds. And Kucoin gives no timeframe for this so is holding people’s funds indefinitely. This is immoral and illegal.

Great professional and huge potential platform. Love its fast growing community. I’m a convinced hodler and staker and the exchange provides me with everything I need. It would be nice if KuCoin brought back staking LUNC on exchange, I got a few million to stake :)

Truly saying I’ve experienced zero issues with Kucoin exchange and I don’t understand where these dissatisfied people are coming from. Those complaining about kyc and large amounts being held should have read their policy ahead of time: no kyc required for accounts under 10k. The Kucoin performance is still better than the other exchanges. Reliable and trustworthy platform.

Worst customer service I have ever had, imho. Two months I’ve been trying to access my blocked account. I’ve sent literally over 15 emails that have been either mostly ignored or the same answer a week later asking for the same information I have now sent about 7 times. Lol!!! I’m out of pocket $2500 because of this. Absolutely abnormal behavior, nothing more than thieves! No excuse at all for taking so much time and still no reply or even real engagement.

An excellent exchange to my mind. Easy interface, good mobile app, strong security, a large variety of coins/tokens to choose from. I’m a UK customer and happy with those decent derivatives and futures that do work, unlike other regulated exchanges which have to comply with bloody UK legislations. Cons: * fiat transfer to and from is expensive * had issues with crypto transfer due to maintenance, had to wait few days until they’d been resolved

I’ve been using Kucoin for over a year now and its service is better than other exchanges in the crypto market that I have used. There were some insignificant problems, but mostly with pending withdrawals, which were also resolved within a day or two. I think Kucoin is a great starter exchange for noobs.

What I like about this platform is the spot trading, KuCoin allows you to exchange 200+ tokens and cryptocurrencies with a fairly low fee. But technical support is not too good. And this is the only exchange that consistently has phishing websites at the top of google, above the official page.

I did one transaction. Then the account has been locked. They stated irregular activity on my account from one transaction, lol! I gave KYC information but still that wasn’t enough. Asked me to email personal data to them. I refused and decided to close my account. Support service made me feel like I was a criminal, which I'm not. Will never use it again, emailed them to close my acc.

What I like about Kucoin is the variety of tokens, ease of registration, and low KYC requirements for using cryptocurrency. Access to bots is a plus. And I really dislike the ads there, annoying and too flashy.

Simple and one of the best UI dealing with exchange of btc, eth, sol, dot etc. Simple and easy registration process as well as crypto buy process. Poor customer support, slow withdrawal process.

I’m an active user on Kucoin just because of low trading fees when compared to other major exchanges. Also they have great daily bonuses there. I want to add: beware of scammers using the Kucoin trademark to run a phishing website to steal Kucoin user credentials.

I often trade here. In general, a good exchange, excellent interface. At first glance, it is a bit unclear, but you need to get used to it. Liquidity on the main coins is just excellent, which allows you to work on a large scale. But the support is sometimes dull, you have to wait for answers.
bottom line

I’m sure that both professionals and beginners can earn money on KuCoin. The latter are only not recommended to overestimate their own abilities, stay away from margin trade. Spot deals are also good even with minimum knowledge.
