The most common questions for each area are summarised in the BSDEX FAQs.
The BSDEX is operated by the Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse GmbH (BWWB GmbH), which also acts as a holding company of the (public-law) stock exchange. BWWB GmbH regulates trading with its own market organization and monitors its regularity. The technical operator is the Boerse Stuttgart Digital Exchange GmbH. This is a joint venture and the shareholders of this joint venture are Börse Stuttgart Group, Axel Springer, finanzen.net and SBI Holdings.
The BSDEX is a multilateral trading system that brings together buyers and sellers of digital assets through an open order book. This means that customer orders are executed directly against each other. The trading venue complies with the regulatory requirements in accordance with section 2 (12) KWG. For all further information on trading, we recommend you to go through the market regulations which are a part of the General Terms and Conditions of the Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse GmbH. In addition, our customer service firstname.lastname@example.org is at your disposal.
Trading on the BSDEX involves transaction fees, which varies depending on the order type. Transparency is very important to us. The transaction fees and corresponding examples for their calculation are part of the general terms and conditions of the Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse GmbH. The following table provides a brief overview:
|Execution as Maker-Order||Execution as Taker-Order|
|Relative transaction fees||0,20% of the transaction volume||0,35% of the transaction volume|
|Minimum transaction fees||0,01 EUR||0,01 EUR|
The amount of the transaction fee depends on whether the relevant order is executed as a maker order or a taker order (part). The following distinction applies to this:
When executed in auctions, unlimited orders are always regarded as taker orders, limited orders as maker orders.
In addition, the customer currently has no costs for the deposit or disbursement of Euro or cryptocurrencies or their safekeeping. Furthermore, no account maintenance fees will be charged.
With the experience of the traditional trading business behind us, BSDEX offers a reliable and transparent environment for the trading of digital assets in Germany.
Transparency is ensured by the open order books, which provide information about existing orders and the current market situation. The orders of investors are executed according to fixed rules against each other. These rules are transparent for all investors and can be seen in the rules and regulations. Our own market surveillance monitors compliance with established rules and standards and ensures reliable trading.
In addition, EUWAX AG, as part of the Börse Stuttgart Group, ensures liquidity in trading. Our state-of-the-art user interface also provides professional functionality for all investors.
The money deposits of the investors are kept free of charge by a German bank and are covered by the statutory deposit insurance in Germany. Custody of digital assets is also free of charge in Germany and meets high security standards.

Crypto exchanges are now subject to the same provisions for the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing as banks and other financial institutions. These provisions include, among other things, comprehensive custodian due diligence and the obligation to report suspicious activities.

Tips for a successful verification:
To be able to verify and trade on BSDEX, you will need:
In Germany, the trading day begins with an opening auction in winter time at 01:30 (CET) and ends at 01:00 (CET) of the following day. During summer time, trading hours begin at 02:30 a.m. (CEST) and end at 02:00 a.m. (CEST) of the following day. After the closing of the opening auction, continuous trading will commence. Continuous trading may be interrupted by intra-day auctions.
Currently you can buy and sell Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Cardano (ADA), Chainlink (LINK), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Polkadot (DOT), Ripple (XRP), Solana (SOL) and Uniswap (UNI).
We are still planning to add more crypto currency as soon as possible. In this context, our top priority is of course the secure, fiduciary custody of new crypto currencies for our customers.
Currently you can choose between the order types 'Limit Order', 'Market Order' and 'Stop Order'.
Orders are sorted in the order book on the respective page according to the price-time priority. Market orders have the highest rank. After that, the rank initially depends on the limit of the order, whereby the rank of an order on the buy side increases with increasing limit and the rank of an order on the sell side increases with decreasing limit.
If several orders are at the same limit level on one side of the order book, the ranking of these orders depends on the time of their arrival in the trading system, whereby orders received earlier receive a higher rank; the same applies to several market orders.
Limit orders are issued specifying a limit which defines the maximum purchase price for a buy order and the minimum sell price for a sell order. Limit orders should run at the specified limit or better.
Market orders are issued without specifying a limit ("cheapest" or "best"). Such unlimited buy or sell orders should be executed at the best price achievable in the current order book.
Stop orders are issued indicating a stop limit (stop price) and entered into the order book as a market order (stop market order) after reaching the stop price or, if an additional execution limit is specified, as a limit order (stop limit order).
A price with revenue issued after the entrance of the stop order is the deciding factor in reaching the stop price. Furthermore, the lowest-limit sell order and the highest-limit buy order in the order book determine whether stop orders are triggered in sell transactions and buy transactions respectively. Stop orders are not visible in the order book until the stop price is reached.
Participants' orders specify the intended buy or sell volume in the respective cryptocurrency. This does not apply to market and stop market orders relating to the purchase of cryptocurrencies; in this case, the participant states the intended buy volume in Euro (€). Market and stop market orders of this kind can lead to non-executable residual volumes; these are automatically removed from the trading system.
Further information can also be found in the basic and risk information for private customers.
Selling with stops:
If you place a sell order with a stop, the best selling price in the order book or that of the trade with revenue is the triggering price. As soon as the trigger price is reached, the sell order is transferred to the order book according to the number of items and, if applicable, the limit price.
Buying with stops:
If you place a buy order with a stop, the best buy price in the order book or that of the trade with revenue is the triggering price. As soon as the trigger is reached, the buy order is transferred to the order book according to the amount or number of items and, if applicable, the limit price.
They indicate in the order the intended purchase or sales volume expressed in the respective cryptocurrency. Excluded are market orders relating to the purchase of cryptocurrencies; Here you enter the intended purchase volume in Euro. Market orders may result in non-executable residual volumes; these are automatically removed from the trading system.
There is no limit on trading volumes in BSDEX. As a verified customer, you can trade independently with the credit available to you.
The subsequent change of an order submitted to the trading system is currently not possible. A change in the order parameters, such as the limit, is only possible by deleting the order and re-setting an order with changed order parameters.
Orders are valid until they are deleted (maximum of 360 calendar days).
You do not need your own external wallet or a depot to trade through the BSDEX. The entire infrastructure will be provided to you upon completion of the identification. Simply register, verify, deposit, and buy and sell digital assets through BSDEX.
The trading day begins in Germany with an opening auction at the winter time at 01:30 (CET) and ends at 01:00 (CET) the following day. During summertime, trading hours start at 02:30 (CEST) and end at 02:00 (CEST) the following day. After completion of the opening auction, continuous trading will commence. Continuous trading can be interrupted by underground auctions. For you as a participant the trade is anonymous. Before and after a deal, participants do not have the option to assign orders to other participants.
In an auction, price determination and order execution take place at a certain time. Prior to this time, orders will not be executed against each other even if they are executable. For example, an auction may be triggered as part of a volatility interruption. For further information, we would like to recommend you to refer to “§ 5 Price determination and order execution in the auction” which can be found in the General Terms and Conditions of the Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse GmbH.
For further questions about auctions please contact our support at email@example.com.
The volatility interruption in continuous trading improves price continuity and can reduce the risk of loss, for example in the case of flash crashes. A volatility interruption is triggered if the next potential execution price is outside the price ranges previously set by BWWB GmbH.
Price range 1: Refers to the price last determined in the respective cryptocurrency, regardless of whether the price determination was carried out in continuous trading or in an auction. BWWB GmbH defines a maximum permissible deviation from this price for each cryptocurrency.
Price range 2: This is wider than the price range 1 and refers to the last price of the respective cryptocurrency, determined in an auction. BWWB GmbH defines a maximum permissible deviation from this price for each cryptocurrency.
In continuous trading, price determination and order execution are carried out continuously. Every new order arriving in the trading system is immediately checked for its executability against orders already in the order book. As far as an executable situation arises, the trading system executes an order execution, otherwise the newly arriving order is placed in the order book. The order execution depends on the price-time priority. A newly arriving, executable order is executed against the order on the other side of the order book, which has the highest rank.
If a newly arriving order can only be partially executed, the part not executed remains in the order book. If it is a non-executable remnant of a buy market order, it will be deleted. The price of the executed part of the order is based on the limit of the order in the order book against which the executed part of the newly arrived order is executed. This may result in an order being executed in multiple sub-runs at different prices for each sub-run.
At BSDEX you can only buy the crypto currencies available and sell them in the amount of your investment volume.

Profits in Euros or another cryptocurrency will result in a private sale transaction i. S. of § 23 para. 1 sentence 1 no. 2 EStG. However, the profit is only taxable if there is not more than one year between the acquisition and the sale (speculation period) and the annual exemption limit of EUR 600 has been exceeded. However, this exemption limit applies to the total profit from all private sales transactions within one year.
The gain on the sale of cryptocurrencies is the difference between the acquisition cost and the selling price. In this case, the FIFO method is used (section 23 (1) no. 2 sentence 3 EStG), according to which it is assumed that the stocks first purchased were first sold.
If the speculative period is more than one year, profits from the sale of cryptocurrencies in the private sector are not subject to income tax.
This information does not constitute tax or legal advice. If you have any questions about your income tax return or other tax issues, please contact your tax advisor.
Bitcoin was released in 2009, making it the first and most important crypto currency. A certain "Satoshi Nakamoto" is considered the inventor. Bitcoin consists of a monetary unit and a payment system. The digital currency (BTC) is created and managed in a global decentralised computer network with the help of special software. The global system is based on a decentralised database in which all transactions are recorded in the form of a blockchain. Bitcoin has attracted worldwide attention due to its value increase in 2017.
More information: https://bitcoin.org/de/
Ether (ETH) is the internal means of payment for transaction processing for the global platform Ethereum. The Ethereum platform is used for Distributed Apps and enables the creation, execution and management of Smart Contracts.
More information: https://www.ethereum.org
Litecoin (LTC) is a global and decentralised payment network; comparable to the Bitcoin network. The main differences between Litecoin and Bitcoin are in the technical area. The main differences between Litecoin and Bitcoin are the speed of transactions, the maximum number of coins offered and the algorithm used.
More information: https://litecoin.org
XRP is an open source protocol by Ripple based on a public database. The Ripple network supports all major currencies. XRP was released in 2012 and unlike Bitcoin is neither based on the blockchain nor can the coin be mined.
More information: https://ripple.com/xrp/
Bitcoin Cash was created from the original Bitcoin blockchain through a hard fork (a community-initiated update to the protocol or code) in August 2017.
The goal of the fork was to increase the block size and thereby significantly reduce transaction throughput (the number of transactions processed per unit of time in a computer). More information: https://www.bitcoincash.org/de/
UNI is the native cryptocurrency of the decentralised trading protocol Uniswap. Uniswap is anchored on the Ethereum blockchain and is used to exchange ERC20 tokens. UNI is designed as an ERC20 token and, when used in the Uniswap protocol, enables governance rights to be exercised via the design of the Uniswap protocol. More information: https://uniswap.org/
