Crypto currencies support the development of blockchain and blockchain transactions. By purchasing a cryptocurrency or token, in most cases, you are helping to develop someones blockchain Idea.

    Banks often quote customers saying they are not going to charge a commission to move money from one currency to another, which is correct, however they add a very high spread on the actual exchange rate. For example, the actual inter bank rate moving from USD to GBP may be 1.50 USD to 1 GBP but the bank will offer the exchange rate 1.58 to 1 GBP this is in fact a 5% fee added onto the exchange rate

     

    Some places like Airport exchanges charge 20% spread and class themselves as commission free transactions.
