Cross-exchange arbitrage


Arbitrage is the safest way to make a lot of money without waiting decades

It's profiting from a difference in prices of the same item. You buy from a low market and quickly sell to a high market.

You know the prices are in your favor

Arbitrage can be hard work, but it's the safest way to make a lot of money. Before you buy, you already know your sell price. You know who will buy from you. You buy and sell at almost the same time. You don't have to wait for the price to move. You take your profit now.

More speed

"Buy low and sell high" is what every business does. Exporters and importers do it across markets, slowly. Online arbitrage is much faster.

More opportunities

Cryptocurrencies have created completely new arbitrage opportunities. There are many exchanges. They all have different prices, often very different. They are online. Transactions happen lightning fast by historical standards.

The real secret is fast growth

Accelerated compound interest. The biggest benefit is that your money compounds fast, over and over. Your trades are usually complete in hours or days, not in weeks or months. Sometimes just in minutes. That means you can reinvest your money many more times each year. The results are so astonishing we recommend you calculate your rate of return yourself to believe it.

Or choose income

If you want income rather than growth, you can try to find any other option with similar returns and lower risks. Arbitrage is work, but it may be the best job in finance. Work anywhere. Anytime. As much or as little as you like. For yourself, or for your company.

How cross-exchange arbitrage works

  1. Find the opportunities.
  2. Buy bitcoin at an exchange where the price is low.
  3. Move your bitcoin to an exchange where the price is high.
  4. Sell the bitcoin and pocket your profit.

With DeNova Trader, the whole process can happen in minutes under your guidance.

Crystal clear platform for almost all exchanges

You don't have to switch to a wildly different trading plaform for each exchange. Imagine how confusing and error prone that would be. Just use DeNova's single simple platform for almost all the exchanges.

Charts don't matter with arbitrage

Up or down, you don't care. Instead DeNova continuously monitors and analyzes thousands of possible trades between each pair of exchanges. You get the best arbitrage opportunities in seconds.

The Bitcoin "price" doesn't matter

The single "price" you see in the media is almost always a quote from just one exchange. Every exchange has its own prices, and they change constantly. It doesn't matter if the price is going up or down. Volatility is an advantage, not a problem. It increases your profit.

What really matters

Now you know the prices are in your favor. You can buy low and sell high, fast. Then do it again over and over.

So why isn't every Bitcoin investor a billionaire?

  • Not everyone knows how arbitrage works.
  • Most trading platforms support just one exchange.
  • Like stocks, not all exchanges are great.
  • Transactions can sometimes take a lot longer than expected.
  • When you go to or from fiat currency, there can be huge delays.
  • The biggest delays are from AML (Anti-Money-Laundering) and KYC (Know Your Customer) laws.
  • There's always slippage to cut your profit.
  • Service and withdrawal fees from some exchanges can kill any profit.
  • Some exchanges hate arbitrage. They want captive traders, and may work to slow or stop you.
  • Arbitrage is less exciting. If you like high risk, this isn't it.

You can bypass or mitigate all these issues

For example, you can detect front running at exchanges by tracking how much slippage is in your favor. A workaround for many AML/KYC delays is to use unregulated exchanges. Remember, regulated definitely does not mean insured. Unregulated often simply means the exchange doesn't trade U.S. dollars. Just keep your trades in cryptocurrencies as long as possible.

Arbitrage is very different from investing in stocks

Stocks Cryptocurrency arbitrage
Few exchanges Many exchanges
Pick stocks Pick exchanges
Brokerage required Direct trade with exchanges
Heavily regulated Generally unregulated
Stock index funds are low risk and low return Probably best risk-adjusted returns publicly available

The risks are very different. Some terms aren't quite the same. The spread isn't just the difference between bids and asks on a single exchange, but between the buy price on one exchange and the sell price on another. A trade usually refers to a round trip trade, including both buying and selling.

More profit. Faster. Less risk.

Arbitrage has rarely been this profitable. It's never been this easy.
