Step 4: Save, trade, or sell the received cryptocurrencies.

  • The length of a cryptocurrency transfer varies depending on how congested the network is and the transfer fee the sender decides to pay. The higher the fee the sender pays, the faster the transfer will be. The standard minimum time for a Bitcoin transaction is 10 minutes. 
  • Once the cryptocurrencies have been received, according to the exchange rate determined in the contract, you have 4 options:
  • Keep the cryptocurrencies received.
  • Exchange them for other cryptocurrencies. One of the most recommended options is to buy Tether, and protect yourself from Bitcoin price volatility until you decide to sell your cryptocurrencies for Fiat currency. 
  • Sell them for Fiat currency, to be deposited in a traditional bank account. This can be done directly from your account in the cryptocurrency exchange you are operating with.  
  • Sell them for Fiat currency to turn directly into cash.
  • You can sell them to another person in a face-to-face transaction, who will share his address with you and give you the cash once the transaction is completed. There are websites that connect cryptocurrency buyers and sellers who want to carry out in-person operations, such as,, and                                                                                                                           
  • You can sell them through a cryptocurrency ATM that will give you cash in exchange. These can be found in some countries of the world, particularly in the Americas and Europe.
