Trade with escrow protection


During the trade the cryptocurrency is locked into a secure escrow system until the seller has received the payment directly from the buyer. If there’s any problems, our staff are on the scene quickly to assist.

Exchange directly with no middleman


The buyer pays the seller directly, without LocalCoinSwap or any other third parties involved. Once the payment is confirmed, the cryptocurrency is released from escrow to the buyer. Then both traders leave feedback on how the trade went.

What our users are saying


A trading experience people love to talk about

  • icon quotation

    As a user of all P2P bitcoin trading platforms for well over 3.5 years I am thoroughly impressed by the seamless experience of using LocalCoinSwap for buying and selling bitcoin.

    Unlike other P2P platforms which seem to keep the old designs and become outdated and do not improve, LocalCoinSwap provides not only a beautiful, modern looking interface, but the experience is very intuitive.

    In addition to the very smooth experience of buying and selling bitcoin, the telegram bot offers unparalleled convenience. I look forward to using LocalCoinSwap as my preferred P2P crypto trading platform for the foreseeable future.

    I became a localbitcoins refugee after they introduced draconian KYC requirements that did not sit right with me.

    Fortunately I came upon LocalCoinSwap and soon discovered that LocalCoinSwap not only offered everything that Localbitcoins had stopped offering, but LocalCoinSwap offered a technically far superior product!

    No draconian KYC requirements, no centralized wallet – third party risk thus eliminated, very fast and efficient support – best by far of any site to date, large selection of top coins to trade.

    In short – the best P2P site by far that I have ever had the privilege of trading on!

  • icon quotation

    LocalCoinSwap is the best P2P trading site with many different ways to buy and sell crypto. The sign up process is super simple and convenient for both long time traders and newbies!

    Support is very responsive unlike other P2P trading sites also!

Common Questions


Who are the people behind LocalCoinSwap?

LocalCoinSwap was built with input and help of a community of over 5000 people spread across the world, who came together with a simple mission to create the people's platform - a decentralized and secure exchange which fights financial exclusion & gives you back control of your money. The developers and trade administrators of LocalCoinSwap are not anonymous characters hiding behind fake social media handles - you can connect with us in real life at popular crypto conferences or co-working spaces, or online through LinkedIn, Telegram and more.

What’s the difference between LocalCoinSwap and other P2P exchanges?

LocalCoinSwap is the original people’s exchange, the first multi-custodial trading platform, and the only marketplace that is truly created and driven by the crypto community. We don’t force any particular cryptocurrency or technical philosophy on our users. If you are a libertarian “your keys, your coins” user - you can trade using smart contracts and the funds can never be touched by our staff members. If you just want to trade Bitcoin quickly or run arbitrage from other exchanges - we offer a cold-wallet escrow system. It’s your platform - and your choice!

How does LocalCoinSwap keep me safe?

Unlike many platforms which can take weeks to deal with trade issues or support tickets, our typical response time is minutes to hours. Our team is internationally located and speaks a wide variety of languages, including English and Spanish. If there are issues with a trade you are a part of, you can alert our staff members and we’ll get involved quickly to mediate the issue, and ensure the cryptocurrency ends up in the hands of the rightful party. However, more than 99% of trades on our platform are completed without any issues - and the typical feedback left for another trader is 5 stars.

Where can I get involved in the LocalCoinSwap community?
