I think it’s safe to say that a lot of predictions went down the drain, as bitcoin did not deliver any firework in December. The market can be boring from time to time, but be patience as the next halving is already around the corner. It should be happening around the month of May. The affect of it might take a while, see chart below. Fingers crossed!

And as final, the announcement of CoinCompare’s Best Deal Broker of the month. Please read the disclaimer below the trophy to understand how the best deal broker is determined. 16 brokers with 188 price comparable crypto, where the prices have been monitored daily to come with the following result at the end of the month December:
Bitqist! Owning third place with 76 entries and a 20.21% share and probably keeping it for a long time . A loss 3.35% in compare to November. No news, no new crypto added in December, but still trading around 150 crypto. That amount ensures them also bronze, as they are third based on the amount of crypto they offer.
Bitvavo! Still the cheapest broker for almost all the crypto they offer, but the amount of crypto is still a lot lower in compare to their competitors. Therefore, still number two in December 2019 with 103 entries and a 27.39% share. A gain of 0.17% in compare to November. No worries so far, as it is still 7.18% more then number three Bitqist.
Coinmerce! Bring in the champagne and light up the fireworks ! The inevitable happened, next to becoming Best Deal Broker December, has Coinmerce also become the Best Deal Broker of the year 2019! Which is a first on CoinCompare, as we are tracking the digits for a full calendar year now. It is hard to beat Coinmerce when having a dominating 132 entries and a 35.10% share in December. A gain of 5.26% in compare to previous month. The two brothers don’t stand still either, because they have hinted to us that they are working on a new complete web- and app-re-design. We are excited, because “it’s going to be HUGE!”. More will be announced on short notice from their own channels.
As final we would like to express our gratitude towards Coinmerce for their support to the crypto community . Besides offering crypto, they also make sure that they think along with newcomers, so that getting in to crypto will be a user-friendly process. Congratulations with being Best Deal Broker 2019 and being so from the beginning !
The best deal provider of the month is determined independently with the average of cumulating buy and sell prices of all the best deals that are shown on our homepage. Logically, the larger the variety of crypto offered, the most chance of becoming the winner. In the end it is still the price of the crypto that matters as it has to be comparable. Discounts in Tiers and VIP levels are not included in the calculation. As deals change several times a day, due to the volatility of prices, the broker with the best deal can therefore change as well. Due to that fluctuation we take two snapshots per day to the determine the broker for that day with the most entries on our main page of our website.
