CryptopMarket Review - is it scam or safe?

CryptopMarket review - Is scam or good forex broker?

RATING: 1 / 10 REVIEWS ForexBrokerz CryptopMarket
CryptopMarket is an offshore broker. Your money is not safe.


CryptopMarket is a forex and CFD borker that also claims to be offering crypto coins. However, we should note that there is a fundamental difference between buying an asset like a crypto coin and making a bet with a Contract for Difference - the kind of service CryptopMarket provides. For more information you may check our article on the subject:


Account type Min. deposit Max. leverage Spreads
Standard Account $250 1:200 3 pips, fixed


CryptopMarket Advantages:


Various trading instruments


CryptopMarket are offering their clients a variety of trading instruments, including over 30 forex pairs, with some exotic currencies like the Turkish Lira and the South African Rand, CFDs on spot metals including, gold, silver and copper, CFDs on agricultural and energy commodities - oil, natural gas, corn, coffee and wheat, as well as crypto CFDs with coins like Dash, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin and Monero. The broker also offers CFDs on indices and stocks and even an instrument called Simplified Fx, which turned out to be a sort of a binary options bet. 


Acceptable minimum deposit requirement


You can open a starting account with CryptopMarket with 250 USD, which is basically in line with the market average. Still, have in mind that some well established players, like FBS and IG does not have a minimum deposit requirement at all.  


Leverage of up to 1:200


The maximum leverage offered by CryptopMarket is up to 1:200 and this is generous enough to fit any trading style. Yet we should note that most experienced traders rarely use leverage of more than 1:100, as higher leverage comes with an implied risk of loosing your funds much faster. 


Popular e-wallets accepted as a payment method


With CryptopMarket you can deposit and withdraw funds using all major credit or debit cards like VISA and MasterCard, bank wire, as well as e-wallets including Neteller, Skrill, WebMoney, QIWI, Yandex, AstroPay and PaySafe. Still, as payments with crypto coins are getting more and more popular, here you may check our list of brokers, accepting bitcoins:

CryptopMarket Disadvantages:


No license


From the presentation on their website we learn that CryptopMarket is operated by Melgreg services OU, with an address in Tallinn, Estonia. However, as the broker mentions nothing about a license or regulation,  we diligently checked the registers of the Estonian Financial Supervision Authority – Finantsinspektsioon and neither CryptopMarket nor Melgreg services OU showed up.


On top of that in the contact section of the CryptopMarket website we came across an address in Moscow, Russia of a completely different company. See for your self:



That leaves us with no choice but to regard CryptopMarket as an unregulated broker and that is unfortunate, as unregulated brokers have very limited credibility and more often than not are involved in scam. 


Keep in mind that regulation is crucial for the safety of any investment and only well respected financial institutions like the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) can provide sufficient security to traders. 


Licensed brokers are obliged to follow strict fiscal and ethical rules, including to maintain a minimum capital adequacy ratio, to keep all clients money in protected, segregated accounts and in some cases even to insure traders capital. 


With the FCA backed Financial Services Compensation Scheme for example, in case the broker goes insolvent, traders can receive back up to 50 000 GBP of their capital. Similar compensation scheme with the CySEC in the Cyprus guarantees traders up to 20 000 EUR of their investment. Here you may check our list of brokers, also licensed by FCA:

CryptopMarket wants us to believe they trade with real crypto coins


CryptopMarket are the latest of a series of unregulated CFD brokers, posing as a crypto exchange to take advantage of the huge interest toward the crypto markets since late 2017. Here you can check our list of brokers also offering Bitcoin CFDs:


>>Bitcoin Forex Brokers<<


Absurdly high spreads


When we tested CryptopMarket's trading platform with a Demo account the EURUSD spread was fixed at 3 pips, which in our opinion is absurdly high. To be considered competitive, spreads with a standard account should start below 1,5 pips. Here you may check our list of brokers, offering tighter spreads:


>> Lowest spread forex brokers<<


Unusual withdrawal fees


CryptopMarket has a series of unusual fees and commissions, including a Maintenance Fee, Profit Clearance Fee and a Withdrawal Fee. 


We just want to point out that is not in line with the general practice on the market. 


MetaTrader4 not available


CryptopMarket offers a web based trading platform, which looks pretty familiar to us, as we have seen a similar version being used for binary options trading.



The platform is overly simplified and lacks lots of features, including the automated trading option, supported by well known platforms like the MetaTrader4. Here you may check our list of brokers, offering MetaTrader4: 


>>MT4 Brokers<<




CryptopMarket is a low credibility, unregulated broker, which offers unreasonably high spreads and has some rather unusual withdrawal and maintenance fees. As we have already discussed, investing with unregulated companies comes with a significant degree of risk of loosing your money to scammers.

I have been scammed by viktor Ubarov how do I make compliant or notifications the authority’s

David Grorge Mitchell 01/10/2020

Lost Money

Hi All,

I am an Indian Citizen and working in Singapore. I am want to share my experience with all of you related the fraud/ scam happen to me by company cryptopmarket.
I am sharing this because you can save your hard earning money from thos cheaters and scammers. I have interest in Forex trading but without knowledge I do not want to enter in this market. I have registered only of few websites to get the trading account.
I have received the promotion call around date Oct 16, 2019, from cryptopmarket to open trading account in Forex. I was made convinced about the feature and charges provided by the company over the phone and remote sharing session.
The account was open on with min. the deposit amount of 250 Euro on date 22/10/19.
After that, they started trading in my account so show how they can do trade and I can make profit on this.
I also tested the withdraw system to place withdraw request 250 Euro and that work fine. So I deposit that amount 250 Euro back to trading account as we as I made my second deposit with 180 Euro.

Then they convince me to add one-time amount around 4k+ Euro so that they can buy 5 K Euro Contract that has confirmed profit of min.4K Euro.
With the help this one time deposit I can earn 4k Euro and the next day I can place the withdraw request and left the profit in the account so that they can work on the remaining amount.
I have told to wait for my salary credit and then I will add it for a few days and make a profit. I have added 4127 + 269 Euro in my trading account by using my salary on date 31 Oct. 2019.
I have informed my account manager Simon Cattaneo ( +44 7480730359) on Whatsup that I am placing my complete salary for this and I need it back ASAP. He gives me surety for the same. I also check the withdraw policy and nowhere it is mention that they can ask me some kind of security deposit to complete withdraw request.
I place the withdraw request on date 2nd Nov after making a profit of 4K.
On Date 8 Nov. I have not received the found on my salary DBS account then I asked the reason for delay.
Then cryptopmarket team confirm that the residence of Singapore considers as money laundering suspect. I feel that this was a very common excuse which they provided for all they client to hold the money.
By saying this they can not release the fund and cancel the request. To any kind of withdraw, I have to deposit 4K euro in 48 hours to prove I am not doing money laundering. This was their 2nd try to take out more money from me.
I explain to them I do not have any money in my account to make any kind of deposit but they are not ready to understand.

I have placed one more request in 8th Nov to get my all invested money back as they are removing/losing fund in my reading account and try to make my account balance Zero.

I have noticed that have removed /loos 5790 Euro from my account till now. Right now I have around 9K euro with loss of 350 Euro.
Later I read a lot on web article about and come to know that I am not 1st customer how face this kind of fraud by this company. The list is very long whom they cheated. Refer to the below web review. I which I read those review before investing money.

Those type of compony is destroyed human life/saving as well as country reputation. I request not to trust this type of company so that they can not identify more victim like me.

Do not trust Cryptopmarket

Opened up the account, but wasn't the one I thought it was,I was new to it and took the bate, sent in an opening cash lump sum, got contacted from my bank advising me to destroy my card. Tried to claim back the money but no joy, they will not reply to any emails or letters. Went through the withdrawal option and the money has disappeared and I never received any money back, my account is still live but its not making or loosing, still no good if you cant control it...Now I constantly get phone calls from similar traders every single day, even after 6 months. Do not trust this company or give them any personal details. I had to change all my bank details and possibly my phone details. DO NOT TRUST THEM

Quiero mi dinero

Mal muy mal te engañan y se quedan tu dinero estafa total

Translated by Google:

I want my money
Bad very bad cheat you and your money is left total scam

Julián Lozano 05/29/2019


I have beendealing with Cryptopmarket since end of Jan 2019. I felt it was a little dodgy when I couldn’t ring back on the number they rang me on. I didn’t pay much attention and carried in trading. They entice you with additional equity for instance double up or even 300% extra on top of your deposit. All goes smoothly, I made some profit and i wanted to withdraw some of my profit. That’s when you realise the scam you are faced with. They kept blaming Lyfinance which is supposedly their bank, that the money doesn’t come through. After much fight, and pleading, i managed to get half of my money and its been over a month and i’m still pursuing the rest of my money.
My advice is not to deal with them as they gonna have your address and more credentials and these type of company areusually run by mafias. So for your own security, stay away.

CryptopMarket complaint

I have been with this company for 4 weeks, I have placed £10000 with them and have made £500. Every time they phone me something great is going to happen and they want me to put in more money which they will add to. My balance with them is £10349 not sure if this includes their part.How do I get out without losing too much money
