How our Altcoin Exchange works using a bid and ask to match customers orders

The backbone of our Altcoin Exchange functions on a state-of-the-art trading engine that uses people willing to buy (AKA the "bid") and people looking to sell (AKA the "ask") that matches trade partners to execute trades. When a bid and an ask both meet the same price, that is when a trade occurs.


Register Your Account

First, to trade directly on the AltQuick exchange. You will need to register your account. This registration takes about 30 seconds and no personal information is required.


Fund Your Account

Users can fund their AltQuick account by depositing any cryptocurrency that AltQuick supports.

Alternatively, AltQuick offers a faucet on that allows users to have free cryptocurrency directly deposited into their exchange account. This is a risk-free way for users to test our exchange.

After you're logged in you can visit your wallet and deposit page at:


Place Your Trade

Place your 'limit order' trade. Choose your quantity and your price.

If you use a 'market order' trade, then your order will automatically match with the best available limit order trades on the books. We strongly recommend using limit orders because it gives you more control over the price at which your trade is executed.

You can see your entire list of active and partially filled orders at:


Wait For A Match Or Cancel Your Trade

Once you place a limit order, you will need to wait for another user on our platform to have a trade that matches the price you selected. When another user's offer matches your pricing, your trade will be executed. This could happen almost instantly, take some time, or not happen at all.

If you decide to cancel your limit order while waiting for a match, you can do so and the coins will be removed from the bid or ask and returned to your personal balance.

If you use a market order, your trade will be completed almost instantly at the best available bid or ask prices (with users who are using limit orders). It is not possible to cancel a market order, so please exercise caution if you choose to use this feature.

AltQuick Only Supports Cryptocurrency & Altcoins On Our Markets!

What Is The Reason For AltQuick Not Supporting Stablecoins or Fiat On Our Markets?

Stablecoins: The main reason that AltQuick doesn't support stablecoins is that we believe that they are all scams. Stablecoins trick users into feeling like they are still in cryptocurrency, but their crypto investment is in a country's currency (which it isn't in reality.) Many stablecoin users believe they can bypass trading and currency laws in different countries using a "pegged" virtual currency. We believe anything that leads investors to believe they are using a nation's currency is subject to that nation's laws.

Fiat: AltQuick would like to offer fiat currency pairs, but the process is extremely expensive and complicated. Our team is currently not financially able or knowledgeable enough to navigate the necessary steps to list United States dollars, euros, or any other form of real currency.

Although listing a market like CAD, USD, or EUR would potentially increase our revenue, the risk to our clients and ourselves is not worth it. Perhaps in the future, we will be able to list "real" currency to the AltQuick markets.

All Stablecoins Are Scammy

We Currently Lack Capability To Safely Support "Real" Dollars

Supporting Either Market Would Potentially Put Us and Our Clients At Risk

If you wish to see a new crypto added to our markets. Please contact us.
We do not charge a listing fee, however, we only list cryptocurrencies that meet our quality standard.

  • This is an old coin with an interesting community. There are only 42 coins in existence. It was one of the first coins to have a small supply rather than a huge number.
  • Avalanche is an interesting and cheaper alternative to Ethereum.
  • Bitcoin serves as the foundation of our entire website. All of our markets are quoted in Bitcoin, making it an integral part of our platform. As the first proof-of-work cryptocurrency in the world, Bitcoin innovated on preexisting technologies in a way that had never been done before. This enabled the creation of the first distributed blockchain, similar to how steamboats used preexisting technology to change the world.
Bitcoin Cash
  • Bitcoin Cash is a fork of Bitcoin that occurred on August 1, 2017. All Bitcoin holders who held Bitcoin on the fork day also received the same amount of Bitcoin Cash in their alternative wallet. Bitcoin Cash has the same maximum supply as Bitcoin (21 million), but the main difference is that Bitcoin Cash blocks are much larger than Bitcoin's. This allows more transactions to confirm in each block. The argument for Bitcoin Cash is that its larger block size enables faster and cheaper transactions, while the argument against it is that its larger blocks make it harder to run a node, which could lead to more centralization.
Bitcoin Testnet
  • When you download the official Bitcoin wallet, a Bitcoin Testnet wallet is also installed. The purpose of Bitcoin Testnet is to provide individuals with a Bitcoin-like coin that they can use to test their code. While developing the AltQuick exchange, we found it incredibly difficult to obtain whole Bitcoin Testnet coins for testing. While some argue that tiny decimal amounts are sufficient to test a system, our team wanted to see how whole coins reacted to our code. The buying and selling of Bitcoin Testnet coins is a taboo subject in the Bitcoin world because Bitcoin developers demand that Testnet has no value. In fact, Bitcoin Testnet has been reset three times since its launch due to people trading it. It's important to note that anything that can happen to Bitcoin Testnet could also happen to Bitcoin itself. Our goal with the Bitcoin Testnet markets is to make it easier for individuals to obtain larger amounts of coins than any faucet could provide. To our knowledge, AltQuick's exchange is the only Bitcoin Testnet exchange in the world.
  • Clamcoin was the first cryptocurrency to use an airdrop method that involved scraping cryptocurrency public keys and depositing the altcoin onto them using a third-party wallet. Clamcoin itself is a proof-of-stake coin. The issue with proof of stake is how to distribute the original coins that protect the network. CLAM solved the initial distribution by using three popular proof-of-work cryptocurrencies - Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Litecoin. All Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin addresses that held over the "dust" amount on May 14, 2014, received 4.60545574 Clamcoin. This makes Clamcoin proof of stake based on proof of work and completely free for proof-of-work people to play with. It's worth noting that Clamcoin was created by one of the co-founders, Scott, of
  • Curecoin is designed with a lightweight and pure Proof of Stake protocol, which ensures that 99.9% of the electricity used during the mining process is dedicated solely to medical research processing. Curecoin has had issues with exchanges demanding funds that the team isn't able to procure. For this reason, AltQuick decided to support their coin for free.
  • Dash is a cryptocurrency that includes a privacy feature. However, many traditional Bitcoin exchanges that aim to act like banks have recently delisted privacy coins. Since AltQuick is not a bank, we believe that Dash is a perfect fit for our ultimate goal of making cryptocurrency available to other cryptocurrency traders.
  • Digibyte is an old cryptocurrency that utilizes multiple security layers. Our co-founder, Scott, was involved in the development of Digibyte in its early days. In fact, Scott designed the Digibyte logo that is still in use today.
  • Dogecoin was created by Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer. The original idea for the cryptocurrency came from Jackson as a joke, which suggested that cryptocurrency users were willing to value anything. Dogecoin was first listed on a free exchange called CoinedUp, and gained so much volume that the exchange was often offline. From there, Dogecoin spread to a website called, which was an offshoot of the popular Bitcoin dice site Dogecoin was unique because there were so many Dogecoins in circulation, that users felt comfortable sending small amounts to strangers without feeling bad. The Dogecoin blockchain supports incredibly small transfers, making sharing easier as well. At the time, Bitcoin was surging in price and people were hoarding, but Dogecoin was the exact opposite and the proof that the concept of sharing worked is evident by the wild spread popularity of Dogecoin throughout the internet over the years. Elon Musk and many other popular tech figures have openly said that they use and support Dogecoin.
  • Ethereum is a versatile blockchain that supports the development of decentralized applications (dApps) and smart contracts. This makes it an attractive option for businesses and developers who want to build decentralized solutions on the blockchain. recognizes the potential of Ethereum in this regard and is actively supporting the growth of the Ethereum ecosystem by offering a platform for users to trade.
  • Florincoin was the first cryptocurrency that had a clear text transaction field. This allows clear text to be stored publicly for the world to see. Clamcoin also utilized the clear text transaction field pioneered by Florincoin.
  • Gapcoin is a cryptocurrency that aims to solve the elusive end of PI. Currently, it holds the world record for solving the most numbers in this sequence. We believe in supporting the pursuit of a solution to this complex mathematical problem, which could lead to further precision in the field of mathematics.
  • Litecoin is among the earliest altcoins created in the world. It was developed by Charlie Lee in consultation with other IRC users.
  • Mazacoin is a coin created with the intention of aiding tribal communities across the United States. The early development of Mazacoin was assisted by one of our friends who had previously worked on during its early days.
  • Monero is considered the gold standard among privacy coins and has recently been delisted by many exchanges due to its excellent privacy features. Its success in making it difficult for governments and institutions to track it has been the reason behind these delistings. We believe that privacy is a fundamental right for everyone, and Monero is the best coin to achieve this, both for expert and novice users alike.
  • Namecoin is widely regarded as the first altcoin ever created, launched in 2011 as a fork of Bitcoin. Its main purpose is to provide a decentralized domain name system (DNS) that is resistant to censorship and control by centralized authorities. Namecoin operates on a blockchain, and its native coin NMC is used as a means of payment for registering and updating domain names on its network. Namecoin has been utilized for a variety of applications beyond its original use case, including identity verification, data storage, and secure messaging. It is designed to be secure, private, and censorship-resistant, making it a popular choice for individuals and organizations seeking a more decentralized alternative to traditional domain name systems.
  • Particl is a privacy-focused cryptocurrency launched in 2017 that operates on its own blockchain. Particl is designed to provide a decentralized, anonymous marketplace where users can buy and sell goods and services without revealing their identities or personal information. Particl uses advanced cryptography and blockchain technology to ensure the privacy and security of its users.
  • Peercoin, also known as PPC or Peer-to-Peer Coin, is the first proof-of-stake cryptocurrency that was launched in 2012. It is designed to be energy-efficient and secure, using a combination of proof-of-stake and proof-of-work consensus mechanisms. Peercoin aims to provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional proof-of-work cryptocurrencies by reducing the energy consumption associated with mining.
  • Qtum is a decentralized open-source cryptocurrency and smart contract platform that combines aspects of both Bitcoin and Ethereum. It was launched in 2017 and aims to bridge the gap between blockchain technology and businesses. Qtum uses a hybrid consensus mechanism that combines Proof of Stake (PoS) and Proof of Work (PoW) algorithms to ensure network security and stability. Qtum's main feature is its compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which enables developers to build and deploy smart contracts on the Qtum blockchain using Solidity, the same programming language used in Ethereum. Qtum's smart contracts can also be written in other programming languages such as C++, Python, and Rust. In addition to smart contracts, Qtum also supports Decentralized Applications (DApps) and has a decentralized governance system that allows token holders to vote on important decisions related to the platform. Qtum's native token is called QTUM, which is used as a means of payment for transactions and smart contract execution on its network.
  • Rhombus is a privacy coin that offers users the option to make both private and public transactions at their discretion.
  • Wownero is a meme fork of Monero that shares many of the same privacy features. It is often compared to Dogecoin due to its similar meme-like characteristics. Wownero is considered the gold standard of meme privacy coins.
  • Zcash is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency that offers enhanced privacy and selective transparency of transactions. It was launched in 2016 as a fork of Bitcoin and uses a technology called zk-SNARKS (Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge) to provide users with the option of shielding the sender, receiver, and amount of transactions from public view. This allows users to keep their financial information private while still allowing for secure and auditable transactions. Zcash also has a fixed total supply of 21 million coins, which is similar to Bitcoin, and a block time of 2.5 minutes. Zcash's native token is called ZEC.
