If you bought your Bitcoin through us originally, kei te pai! Nothing further is required. You’ll be able to sell the same amount back to us, no matter what the value has changed to.

For example, if you had bought 3 BTC from us and 100 XRP you can sell back 3 BTC and 100 XRP regardless of how high they moon.

How long does it take to sell Bitcoin (BTC) in New Zealand?

With Easy Crypto, your Bitcoin sell order will be confirmed and processed on the same day in New Zealand. We are proud to offer 24/7 BTC to NZD withdrawals, whether your cash out $50 or $500,000 NZD, we’ll have your funds deposited to your bank account as soon as we confirm and verify your sell order.

Selling Bitcoin in NZ

Any Bitcoin investor will want to make a profit at some point. In most cases, BTC investors and holders cash out their Bitcoins when their profits have surpassed their initial capital, or a specified profit margin has been reached.

Cashing out your BTC for NZD at the right time is key to making profit.

The key to making this profit work is to execute the exchange at the right timing. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to cash out Bitcoin in a timely manner on international exchanges.

  • Coinbase for example is known to restrict the amount of Bitcoin investors can sell during peak trading periods.
  • Almost every international BTC exchange is known to limit how much Bitcoin can be exchanged for fiat cash in a single transaction.
  • It is common for exchanges like Bitfinex to limit cash withdrawals, due to having limited liquidity.

Thankfully, Easy Crypto is not like international exchanges like Coinbase or Bitfinex. Easy Crypto is also in the fortunate position of being able to draw on cash liquidity from several leading over-the-counter (OTC) Bitcoin brokers.

What this means for you is simple.

  • With Easy Crypto, it is possible to sell Bitcoin in NZ, whenever you want to.
  • It is possible to cash out an unlimited amount of crypto in a single OTC order.
  • Our access to OTC market liquidity means we never limit sell orders, even during peak trading periods.

Things to consider before withdrawing your cryptocurrencies

As with any investment endeavors, patience and timing are important elements to make the most out of your investments.

There are no definitive guides as to when you should cash out your bitcoins. It’s always best to do your research and stick to your investment goals and targets.

Whether you want to take profit at a certain margin, or hold your bitcoins indefinitely is completely up to you.

Fear of missing out (FOMO) trading is the easiest way to make losses when buying and selling cryptocurrency.

When initially buying Bitcoin it is, therefore, advisable to decide how long you wish to stay invested for, as well as plan an exit strategy; not cash out at the first sign of BTC price corrections.

Another approach you may want to consider is investing with the dollar-cost averaging (DCA) principle. The DCA is a relatively simple, and proven method to mitigate risk by investing in consistent intervals over a period or length of time.
