I want to purchase some BTC. Because of the fact that BTC demand is high and supply is low in South Korea, its price is very high (Korbit 07.12.17: 17394 USD).

As I am currently living in Korea, are Korean bitcoin exchanges still a good option despite its high price or should I buy somewhere else where price is lower?

  • Of course you should as long as the exchanges allow Korean resident. This list may prove useful to you. coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/#markets – Chak Dec 7 '17 at 0:42
  • Maybe, if I deposit money with my MasterCard to other exchanges where price is lower, the overall price for 1 BTC would be lower? – DeveScie Dec 7 '17 at 0:51
  • The average price on the other exchanges are 13000$ - 14000$ , so give or take 3000$ in differences for 1 BTC right now. Also you shouldn't use credit/card for larger amount unless it is urgent, because the fees will be enormous. – Chak Dec 7 '17 at 1:09
