The price of exchange between Virtual Currency and Fiat currency is based on the order type. In Gatecoin's platform, we provide Limited Order and Market Order. For Limited Order, it will be executed once the price has reached your desirable price. Hence, there is no guarantee that a limit order will be filled.
Whereas for Market Order, it is an order to buy or sell a set amount of cryptocurrency/tokens at the best available price (market price) on the exchange. Therefore, market orders are usually executed immediately.
It is important to note that limit and market orders are significantly different types of orders. Placing the wrong type of order type may cause you to lose value. Please ensure you are placing the correct order type, if uncertain or need any assistance with the process of placing or types of order, please get in touch with the customer service team to walk you through the process. We are unable to reverse user error related transactions.
