Coinmama security levels are exceptionally high. They offer 2FA and a withdrawal white list option. They use an elastic multi-stage wallet strategy ensuring that 80-90% of funds are kept offline and secure. Also, for withdrawals, users are required to pass an enhanced verification process providing proof of the validity of their identification documents.
Coinmama belongs to a Slovakian firm, NBV International s.r.o., which is affiliated with an Israeli firm, New Bit Ventures Ltd. There is a lot of secrecy about the company founders. The only information available on the Coinmama site is that New Bit Ventures Ltd is a regulated entity registered as a Money Service Business. The amount of scam allegations they receive is likely due to this secrecy.
The Coinmama platform sells BTC and ETH to its users and claims to be a fast and easy way to purchase cryptos with a credit card. Recent customer reviews however, mention slow or declined transactions. We recommend using this platform with caution. Keep in mind the fees you need to pay: 5.5% to the exchange and an additional 5% for payment processing if you pay by credit card.
