Are the fees high to buy Cryptocurrencies?

Not at all, eToro takes a very small percentage of your total investment amount. The exchange offers free and instant GBP deposits through all its supported methods. Furthermore, there is only a small $5 fee for withdrawals. And, the only cost is a 1% fee for every crypto trade (when you buy or sell), meaning if you buy $100 worth of Bitcoin, you only need to pay eToro $1. This is relatively low compared to other exchanges.
