Cashing out your BTC for NZD at the right time is key to making profit.

Any Bitcoin investor will want to make a profit at some point. In most cases, BTC investors and holders cash out their Bitcoins when their profits have surpassed their initial capital, or a specified profit margin has been reached.

The key to making this profit work is to execute the exchange at the right timing. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to cash out Bitcoin in a timely manner on international exchanges.

  • Almost every international BTC exchange is known to limit how much Bitcoin can be exchanged for fiat cash in a single transaction.
  • It is common for exchanges like Bitfinex to limit cash withdrawals, due to having limited liquidity.
