Part of Crypto.com’s goal is to ascertain customer satisfaction when using all of its products and services. The crypto exchange works on ways to make conducting transactions and trading faster and easier. One of the tools to ensure that users have an effective trading experience is a recurring buy. 

What is Recurring Buy

A recurring buy is a tool that allows Crypto.com users to buy various cryptocurrencies across different times. With recurring buy, you can buy crypto across different purchase frequencies; daily, weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly. So, for recurring buy-listed cryptocurrencies, you don’t have to purchase your crypto at once.

For instance, if you want to buy $100 worth of CRO, initially you will have to buy it at once. But with the recurring buy, you can spread your purchasing power ($100) across different purchase frequencies. With a daily purchase frequency, you will buy a certain amount of CRO every day till you exhaust your $100. When you use a monthly recurring buy, your purchasing power is spread across purchasing CRO in minute quantity every month.

How does it work?

Recurring buy makes use of the Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA) investment strategy to spread the purchasing power across different intervals. DCA works to allow an investor to reduce the effect of volatility on a purchase. With DCA, you don’t have to buy a whole quantity of the asset you want at once but rather spread the purchase across different periods. 

So, if you need to purchase an asset, BTC, for example, while the market is very high, buying at once means you are buying at a possible top. However, with DCA, you can create a spread across multiple periods and purchase your desired asset at different prices.

With recurring buy, you have the power over how your purchasing power is spent but not the quantity of a token you will receive after all purchases have been made.
