Trusted by the communityLocalMonero has operated for over two years, survived the Great Cryptocurrency Market Crash of 2018, and through its community-oriented diligent service became one of the most trusted names in the extremely skeptical Monero community.
No KYC/AMLAgoraDesk is committed to maintaining the simplicity and straight-forwardness that made the original LocalBitcoins so popular. We do not employ KYC/AML, nor do we ever plan on doing so. We firmly believe that the very concept of KYC/AML is completely antithetical to the very idea of a peer-to-peer over-the-counter exchange such as our own, and until there are no more legal ways on planet Earth to avoid implementing KYC/AML we will do everything we legally can to provide you with a hassle-free experience.
Fair feesUnlike LocalBitcoins, however, we do not charge exorbitant fees when you deposit or withdraw Bitcoins to/from our arbitration bond wallet. There is no deposit fee, and the withdrawal fee is very close to the fee you’d be paying on a normal transaction. Transfers to the wallets of other AgoraDesk users carry no fees at all.
Stellar supportOur support team is fast, responsive and always eager to please. We’ve never had a support ticket that wasn’t answered within 24 hours. We are always easily reachable through social media, we listen intently to your criticisms and we always implement good user suggestions in record time.
Safe and smooth tradingJust like LocalBitcoins, we support any payment method, any currency, anywhere. We do not remove payment methods, and, unlike LocalBitcoins, we fully support face-to-face cash trades. All of our trades are protected by arbitration bond. Thanks to the fact that we require funds to be held in arbitration bond before a trade can start, we ensure a smooth and quick experience for the buyer, which is essential for the popularity of the platform and repeat customers for the sellers.
Fraud preventionOur arbitration standards are very high, as we do not accept screenshots or other easily-falsifiable documents as proof in disputes. Because of this, we are able to deter a large amount of scammers from trying to scavenger on our platform. We respond quickly to user reports and we issue warnings in regions where there are sudden spikes of scammer activity.
Privacy-centric, censorship-resistantOur site is easily accessible through our Tor portal (which is tuned for maximum performance for your comfort through our use of advanced onion routing features) and even through an I2P portal. This ensures not only that you will be able to conceal your true IP from us (which we never associate with your account anyway), but that if for whatever reason our normal domain becomes inaccessible to you, there will be other ways for you to access our service. We value your privacy so much, we don’t even require you to provide an email when registering.
