As the cryptocurrency markets show signs of recovery – or further declines, depending on the currency – new arbitrage opportunities will be unlocked accordingly. There are still plenty of ways to make good money in this industry, although it may sometimes depend on what one hopes to achieve exactly. The following six options can yield decent profits, assuming they are executed in a timely manner.
Stellar Lumens (HitBTC / Gate / EXMO)
It has been a few days since an interesting arbitrage opportunity involving EXMO presented itself. Today is one of those “lucky” days, as the price per XLM on both HitBTC and Gate is significantly lower compared to EXMO. When done correctly, traders can pocket a quick profit of up to 5% per trade, which is rather high for direct arbitrage trading. EXMO is not the most liquidity-driven platform, though, thus timing and patience will be of the essence.
Ethereum (OKEx / Poloniex / EXMO)
A very similar opportunity exists for Ethereum arbitrage trading today. EXMO is the place to sell, as its prices are much higher compared to nearly every other exchange on the market. Buying on HitBTC, OKEx, Poloniex, Gate, Kraken, Binance, Bitfinex, or KuCoin will yield profits ranging from 2$ all the way up to 4.7%. A very nice opportunity to take advantage of, assuming there is a decent order book on EXMO to dump into.
Litecoin (Bitstamp / Bitfinex / HitBTC)
A few different opportunities for quick profits exist where Litecoin is concerned. One could buy LTC on Kraken and sell it on HitBTC for a 1.4% profit. Another option is to buy on Bitstamp and transfer funds to either Cex, Bitfinex, or HitBTC for profits ranging from 0.9% to 1.2%. All of these options seem to involve platforms with sufficient liquidity to make something good happen in the end.
XRP (OKEx / Poloniex / EXMO)
The arbitrage opportunities involving XRP are almost identical to those for Ethereum. In most cases, they involve the exact same exchanges to buy from and sell to, although the potential profits are a bit different. For XRP, the lowest profit is just 0.8%, whereas the best arbitrage opportunity will yield 5.6% in profits. As these prices continue to shift between different exchanges, there is an almost guaranteed profit to be scored at any given time.
Bitcoin (Poloniex / KuCoin / EXMO)
Unsurprisingly, there are also plenty of Bitcoin-related trades to look into today. That is usually the case when the world’s leading cryptocurrency loses value and then starts regaining some of those losses. Buying BTC on Kraken, KuCoin, HitBTC, OKEx, Poloniex, Gate, Bitfinex and Binance and selling it on EXMO can yield profits of roughly 4% on average. Not a bad option to explore, given the current market circumstances.
Monero (Kraken / HitBTC)
It would almost appear as if this particular arbitrage opportunity comes back every single day. Monero prices between Kraken and HitBTC are always different, which allows for some easy profits to be scored in quick succession. As of right now, there is a 1.5% price gap between both platforms, with HitBTC maintaining the higher price. An interesting option to explore, assuming one wants to dabble in one of the least liquid altcoin markets in the top 15.

10,000 Retail Shops in France Will Sell Bitcoin, XRP, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dash, Powered by Payments Giant Ingenico: Report
Bitcoin, XRP, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dash are reportedly expanding to 10,000 points of sale throughout France.
Digycode first rolled out its crypto coupons last year. The startup says it’s now expanding to over 10,000 shops through a collaboration with Paris-based payments giant Ingenico, according to local news outlet Cryptonaute. The leading payments firm reported $2.8 billion in revenue in 2017.
“‘The deployment of Digycode is the result of a partnership between Digital Service and Ingenico, and tobacconists equipped with a Devlyx cash registerare, therefore eligible to sell our product for their customers, commented Christopher Villegas, CEO of Digital Service.”
The crypto startup will offer prepaid recharge coupons that can be purchased in three available increments – 20, 50, or 200 euro – by visiting any of the supported locations. Once a customer redeems the coupon on Digycode’s website by using a secret code, the euro is converted into crypto.The company says crypto balances will appear in the user’s crypto wallet as soon as the transaction is confirmed.
Tobacco shops are selling crypto despite regulatory uncertainty.
France’s tobacco federation was granted permission to sell crypto from the French Prudential Supervision and Resolution Authority, according to a report from the French radio network Europe 1.
But France’s central bank is singing a different tune, saying it has not approved retail sales of cryptocurrency. In addition, the Financial Markets Authority, which regulates the country’s stock market, has issued a statement saying no company is licensed to sell crypto in stores.
Crypto-Friendly Wyoming Becomes First US State to Give Bitcoin, XRP, Ethereum, Litecoin, EOS and Altcoin Owners Complete Property Rights
The Wyomng Senate passed SF125 on Thursday. The “Digital Assets” bill will now become law, granting cryptocurrency holders property rights for direct ownership of digital assets. Wyoming is the first state in the US to pass a clear regulatory framework for Bitcoin, XRP, Ethereum, Litecoin, EOS and other altcoins, setting the stage for cryptocurrency investors, entrepreneurs and crypto-related businesses to flourish in the state.
The bill allows people to hold cryptocurrency without the need for an intermediary to own digital assets, and clears the way for banks to offer custodial services for cryptocurrencies.
According to the act, digital assets are considered intangible personal property.
“AN ACT relating to property; classifying digital assets within existing laws; specifying that digital assets are property within the Uniform Commercial Code; authorizing security interests in digital assets; establishing an opt-in framework for banks to provide custodial services for digital asset property as directed custodians; specifying standards and procedures for custodial services under this act; clarifying the jurisdiction of Wyoming courts relating to digital assets; specifying applicability; authorizing the promulgation of rules; and providing for an effective date.”
The bill is expected to come into effect on July 1. It also supports the advancement of tokenized securities.
Caitlin Long, co-founder of the Wyoming Blockchain Coalition, expects the new legislation to attract blockchain companies and talent, making Wyoming a frontrunner in the space with a clear regulatory framework designed to foster innovation and spur adoption of Bitcoin, altcoins, blockchain-based businesses, trading platforms and crypto custodial services.
