Binance P2P: Buy & Sell Bitcoin for Cash Near You

2022-07-21

Try cash-in-person on Binance P2P if you’re looking for a simple way to convert your bitcoin holdings into physical cash.

Main Takeaways

  • Learn more about the different methods you can sell bitcoin for physical cash.

  • Using a peer-to-peer marketplace like Binance P2P allows you to make cash-in-person transactions with no fees.

While most people conduct their crypto transactions online, some users still prefer the offline option of converting their holdings into physical cash. This article will cover the most popular methods for bitcoin-to-cash conversions, from Bitcoin ATMs to peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplaces, and how you can get started with a secure, cost-effective platform like Binance P2P.  

What Methods Are Available?

Before we dive into the different options, make sure you have bitcoin available in your wallet. To get started, you can read the Binance guide to buying bitcoin. If you’re already holding bitcoin, consider other options — such as the Binance crypto visa card — before converting to fiat currency.

Bitcoin ATM

At first glance, Bitcoin ATMs look just like your traditional cash machines. However, instead of connecting to your bank account, these ATMs facilitate transactions on the Bitcoin network. 

For most Bitcoin ATMs, you’ll need to scan a wallet QR code and then sell your bitcoin for physical cash. Some ATMs may require know-your-customer (KYC) checks, such as identity verification, before you can transact crypto. 

While a Bitcoin ATM sounds convenient, the transaction fees are typically higher than other methods. So if you want to save money on fees, consider selling your bitcoin on a peer-to-peer marketplace

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Marketplace

P2P marketplaces allow two parties to directly trade with each other instead of going through a matching engine on the Spot market. 

For example, users can list buy or sell ad postings with their preferred local currency and payment method — in this case, cash-in-person. Think of a P2P marketplace like eBay listings, but with cryptocurrencies instead of used items. 

If you’re interested in P2P trading, consider making your first trade with experienced crypto merchants on Binance P2P. Since October 2020, Binance P2P has offered support for users looking to buy and sell crypto via cash payments made in person.
