What is P2P Cryptocurrency Trading?

P2P (peer-to-peer) trading is the act of buying or selling crypto directly between 2 two users, without the use of a middleman to facilitate the transaction process. 

P2P is the rawest form of cryptocurrency trading available, with its own pros and cons revolving around the safety of the trading process and the benefits of acquiring crypto where you’re not required to compromise your financial privacy.

Since 2016, New Zealand AML law has required NZ crypto services to collect and provide information on their users to the IRD, including details such as names, wallet addresses, order history, device information, IP addresses, and more.

A P2P crypto trader is any individual who buys and sells cryptocurrency directly between other users, instead of buying through an exchange or retailer in NZ.

Disclaimer: As an individual, you are entirely responsible for how you conduct your trades and engage with other members of the community. NZ Crypto Marketplace admins recommend taking extreme caution and care when trading and are not responsible for the outcomes, management, or oversight of your activities. We do not vouch for the authenticity of any trader, and it is exclusively your own responsibility to perform due diligence when trading. This is the challenge of P2P – if you cannot operate safely on your own, you may be better suited to traditional methods of buying and selling crypto.
