How To Trade Banano on Txbit.io – Step-By-Step Guide

Banano now is listed on its second relevant exchange after Mercatox: the Dutch exchange txbit.io.

For those of you not being used to trading cryptocurrencies on exchanges yet, here’s a step-by-step walkthrough of how to buy or sell Banano on txbit. You might also find this previous how-to explaining all steps at Mercatox helpful.

Now here’s some step-by-step examples of how to trade at txbit and buy Banano:

First, go to txbit.io and create an account (SIGNUP button). If you already have one, log in.
