Home / Education / Glossary / Arbitrage


Arbitrage refers to taking advantage of price disparities across several platforms or exchanges as a trading method employed in the financial markets, including cryptocurrency marketplaces.

It entails purchasing an asset at a cheaper price on one market and simultaneously selling it at a higher price on another exchange, making money off of the price difference. Arbitrage opportunities are used by traders to take advantage of momentary price mismatches and maintain market integrity.
