Is Banxa a legitimate website?

Hi everyone, I’m asking because there isn’t much information online. There are only a few reviews on Trustpilot, and it worries me that there’s so little.

Has anyone used this service before? If not, where is the safest place to buy Bitcoin?

Thanks.

I did my first transaction with Banxa today. I had to jump through a bunch of hoops, (ID, etc.) and 2 of my cards declined the transaction as fraudulent. That only is enough for me not to continue because I feel like it is a scam

Hey there! Totally get your concern. Trying a new service with few reviews can be nerve-wracking, especially when it comes to something like Bitcoin. While I haven’t personally used that specific service, limited online info can be a red flag.

Here’s the deal: There are well-established and safe places to buy Bitcoin. Some popular options include Coinbase, Kraken, or Gemini. These places have been around for a while and have a good reputation for security. They might not be the most exciting new service, but they’ll get you started securely.

If you’re open to exploring some trusted places, I can give you a little more info on those!

hi fans i would advise It’s essential to exercise caution and do further research before using their services. If you’re considering Banxa, I recommend checking reviews on platforms like Trustpilot and Scam Detector to make an informed decision.

It has been rumored to be full of naija guys who con unsuspecting users. For me that has compromised its reputation.

Don’t think they are legit at all. I just had $1000. charged on my checking account from them, and I’ve never heard of them before. They don’t have my ID card info, only unauthorized purchases in my bank account for nearly $1000.
