Investors Cannot Sell Their Digital Assets Due To Minimum Limits

There are millions of crypto users and enthusiasts that are not able to sell their virtual currencies because of the high minimum limits imposed by crypto platforms and wallets. This is apparently affecting millions of small crypto investors in the world.

  • Crypto investors are not being able to sell their virtual currencies due to high minimum limits
  • Blockchain.com says they have increased their limits to remain updated with network fees

It seems that there are several users that cannot sell their digital assets to the market because they are having trouble with the limit imposed by crypto wallets. Many wallets have imposed minimums that are currently close to $100 and small investors would not be able to leave the market if they want to sell.

Should Minimums Be Lowered?

Users that have less than $100 in Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies might find it difficult to sell or transact their funds due to the minimums imposed by crypto wallets and platforms. According to a recent article released by Telegraph Money, many of those that purchased small amounts of Bitcoin (BTC) in 2017 and are trying to sell they are not able to do it.

Some of these platforms include the popular Blockchain.com wallet that has established very high limits for users to sell their funds. For example, Telegraph Money explains that there is a user that purchased 0.0062 of a cryptocurrency and found out that the minimum amount he could sell was 0.008. After some time, the user checked and the minimum amount moved to 0.01.

According to what Blockchain.com says, these minimums are established taking into account network fees. A spokesperson for Blockchain.com explained that they have evolved minimums to ensure users don’t pay uneconomical fees to move small amounts of money.

A recent analysis released by Interactive Investor shows that the minimums established by Blockchain.com seem very high compared to other companies. There are almost 18 million wallets that hold less than the necessary Bitcoin to reach the limit imposed by Blockchain.com.

In general, cryptocurrency exchanges have larger minimums for users to deal with virtual currencies. Trade and withdrawal limits also have very high limits. That shows that there are many things that companies in the space have to change, improve and enhance if they want to attract more investors to the market.

There are alternatives such as decentralized exchanges (DEX) and open-source wallets that would give users a different alternative to deal with digital assets and cryptocurrencies. However, newcomers tend to go to the most popular and recognized crypto wallets and services rather than using open source and decentralized platforms, which yet need to become mainstream.
