While the treatment of Hard Forks and similar events (incl. "airdrops" and other token allocation events) is uncertain from a legal and practical perspective, Swissquote’s current policy in this regard is to make its best efforts to have its concerned clients benefit from such events, the way Swissquote deems appropriate. For more details, please refer to our Policy on Hard forks and similar events and section 12 of our Digital Assets Contract.
Yes, Swiss taxpayers must declare their digital currencies. Swissquote provides details of your cryptocurrency positions in January of each year to help you declare them correctly. This information can be found in the «Documents» section of your account.
You can transfer XBT or ETH to/from an external wallet that you own personally (transfer support for other cryptocurrencies is planned for a future update). Cryptocurrency payments and transfers to/from third parties directly from your Swissquote account are not allowed.
Your Swissquote wallet currently only supports transfers for the following cryptocurrencies: XBT and ETH. Trying to deposit any other currency may result in the loss of your transferred funds. Support for other cryptocurrencies is planned for a later update.
Deposits from an exchange
You can transfer cryptocurrency to your Swissquote account from any of the following whitelisted exchanges:
Deposits from any other exchanges will be rejected and may incur additional transaction fees.
Please note that for legal reasons, deposits from exchanges are subject to additional confirmation steps: you will be required to provide screenshots of the transaction.
Withdrawals to an exchange
Withdrawals from your Swissquote wallet to a cryptocurrency exchange are currently not supported. Attempts to transfer cryptocurrency to an exchange could result in the loss of the transferred funds.
For cryptocurrency deposits (i.e. transfers to your Swissquote account) of a value in excess of USD 100’000, please contact our Customer Care.
Transfers ordered during weekends or holidays will only be processed from the following working day.
There are no fees for cryptocurrency deposits of a value equivalent or superior to USD 500. Deposits under that value and withdrawals incur a USD 10 flat fee.
While there is no minimum deposit amount, please note that your Swissquote wallet only supports 8 decimal places. This means that deposits of smaller cryptocurrency fractions will not be accounted for.
As Swissquote’s Ethereum transactions are generated from smart contracts, a common cause for the rejection of Ether deposits is an insufficient Ethereum gas limit. We recommend that you specify a gas limit of 40’000 on your external wallet prior to initiating the transaction, to ensure that it is executed promptly. Consult the help of your external wallet for details on setting gas limits. If you are still experiencing rejected transactions and cannot determine the cause, please contact our Customer Care Centre.
Yes, all Bitcoin addresses formats are supported.
