The distributed bitcoin exchange

Coinffeine is an open source, peer-to-peer (P2P) bitcoin exchange platform. With Coinffeine you are able to buy and sell bitcoins securely and anonymously without having to rely on a centralized exchange like MtGox or Bitstamp. It's like BitTorrent for your bitcoins!

Coming soon

Your money. Evolved.

Coinffeine is the next-gen bitcoin exchange, with a dramatically different approach than traditional exchanges. We exploit the full potential of the bitcoin protocol to give you the most secure, private and reliable platform in the market.

Secure

You are always in control of your bitcoins and your trusted payment processor of choice is in control of your local currency.

Private

The exchange is done peer-to-peer (P2P), so there is only a very limited disclosure of information (your payment processor account so the money can be transferred) with the person you are doing the exchange.

Reliable

Coinffeine is completely distributed, just like BitTorrent, so even if our server is overloaded, gets hacked or explodes it won't affect the network and the exchange can continue to work without it being affected.

Immediate availability

Unlike traditional exchanges, you receive your bitcoins directly to your wallet and your local currency directly to you payment processor's account, so you can start spending them as soon as the exchange is finished.

No fees

Coinffeine doesn't charge any fees. You only need to pay the standard bitcoin transaction fee plus any fees your payment processor might charge you.

Open Source

Our code is open to inspection, audit and review by anyone to ensure that Coinffeine is trustworthy. We accept bug reports and patches from the community to ensure the highest level of quality.

How does it work?

Coinffeine works by using bitcoin's own features to enable a secure way of exchanging bitcoins with an untrusted peer without the need for a centralized trusted third party. Check out the below presentation for a high level overview of how exchanges are performed.
