Compare Bitcoin Exchanges

Where you buy your bitcoins in Australia matters. If you look at just the fee, or just the price, you could pay over 5% more. Both price and fee should be considered in context with the global averaged bitcoin price.

Office space images (battlestations) of various Australian related exchanges.

May update: New sell table added to site (similar to the buy table on this page).

Scroll down for a features table or a price and fee table.

- bitcoin4australia.com
Website was closed for a year but might be back open for business.
- Comment on home page in March, April and May 2014: "We are in the process of re-developing Bitcoin4Australia!". In June 2014 website message says: "OUT OF STOCK!". Similar message in Aug. 2014 and Jan. 2015. March 2015 message is "website under construction". In April 2015 the website is back but I don't think they are serious. Fee is between "8.9 – 14.9% Agent Fee" and they say they are "Bitcoin4 Australia™ is a leading Australian Bitcoin Exchange" after over a year of being closed. In May 2015 website says: "Maintenance Mode Activated...".
- Has an ABN but doesn't mention trading name.

- Facebook comment from customer (comment deleted in March 2014): "Legal action is being taken against this company as they have failed to send $3000 worth of bitcoins Just a warning to everyone before you use these A**holes".
Go Get Coins (non-marketplace exchange)
GoGetCoins.com
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
Risky for the below reasons. Probably not operating anyway.
- ACN was 169400908 (search can't find ACN) < No longer has an ACN as of Nov. 2014?
- Exchange advertised on BitcoinTalk.org on 03-08-2014.
- Warning: This is the only bitcoin exchange not using a HTTPS/SSL connection (it's not safe).
- Website always says (when I check) on the 'buy bitcoin' page: "Buy limit for today is between $0-$1" from August 2014 to April 2015. Are they even in business? In May 2015 the website won't load (Javascript error?).
CoinTree (non-marketplace exchange)
CoinTree.com.au
- Co-founders are Shane S, and Matt K.
Not operating (but will be back?).
- Has an ABN.
- Note that the website has been online for months (and their social profiles active) but even if you sign up, you can not deposit funds to buy bitcoin since 02-10-2014.
- Message from co-founder on 26-11-2014: "We will be back in the near future..."
- Quick links: BT, Red, T, T2, Duck, FB.
Purchase Bitcoin (non-marketplace exchange)
PurchaseBitcoin.com.au
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
- Possible founder/owner might be Karthik M.
Possibly operating but looks dodgy and deceptive.
- About page in most of 2014 said: "Purchase bitcoin has been seeling bitcoins for over 5 years" but has now been changed to "3 years" as of March 2015. His ABN was activated in August 2013.
- Home page from May 2014 to June 2014 says: "32455521 Bitcoins we sold so far" and later (in July 2014 and August 2014) the number was "32455548 bitcoin", in September 2014: "229 bitcoin", in November 2014: "231".
- Website redone in January 2015 with poor English, No https/SSL, and general deception (E.g.: "Purchase Bitcoin is the most sought over service of purchasing Bitcoins in Australia" < now removed in April 2015).
Mimex
Mimex.net
- Is operated by William Dunne, Nathan Johnson, Ryan Curnow, and Phillip Braham.
Not operating (but will be back?).
- Based in the UK. Has an $AUD bank account for deposits.
- Mimex website down on the 23th of March to May 2015.

CoinJelly (wallet provider?)
CoinJelly.com

- Founder/CEO was previously Ashley K but he sold the company in Dec. 2014..
Permanently closed.
- Has an ABN. (< Is this ABN still applicable after the change of ownership?)
- I think you can buy bitcoin but I can't find a buy/ask price. They list on their website from July to Nov. 2014 that they have a 1% fee but I think that is more for holding bitcoin in their wallet rather than buying bitcoin?
- Is CoinJelly misleading its users? www.CoinFire.cf says: "Zurich Australian Insurance Limited (ABN 13 000 296 640) has not issued any policy of insurance to CoinJelly." yet CoinJelly says: "CoinJelly, through Zurich Financial Services Pty Ltd (Australia), guarantees user deposits up to 20 BTC" (comment removed from website in July 2014).
