But what to do when you want to sell your bitcoin, but you don’t necessarily want to cash out your profits? What if you want to sell your bitcoin so that you can diversify your portfolio with altcoins or wait for a better re-entry position but don’t want to trade? 

How to sell bitcoin into fiat currencies

One of the solutions for both scenarios described above is to sell your bitcoin into national currencies (Fiat) such as USD, GBP, or EUR and put your profits somewhere safe. You don’t need to withdraw them directly to your account or card. You can keep them in your Binance Fiat Wallet and access them without waiting for a bank deposit or paying deposit fees for card transfers.

The main advantage of using fiat currencies on Binance is that they’re stable and fungible. You can trade them against a vast number of altcoins, so there’s always a way to spend your fiat and turn it into more profit. 

This way, you can move your bitcoin profits into cash without the funds ever leaving Binance, staying ready to be used whenever you need them.
