  • Other Exchanges | Trade Other Cryptocurrencies Here  
    • Using GDAX is a great way to trade Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, but what if you want to trade other cryptocurrencies?
    • Not all cryptocurrencies are available to be traded at every online exchange
    • GDAX allows you to trade Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, but if you wish to trade other cryptocurrencies, you will need to create accounts with other cryptocurrency exchanges

    • You can convert Steem into Steem Power by a process called powering up
    • Steem power are influencer tokens and is similar to having equity in the Steemit platform
