Dynamic price type is a feature that enables users to create trade ads at rates that change based on a drop or spike in the general price of bitcoin.With dynamic price type, we pull the bitcoin price from Blockchain API in USD and multiply it with the Naira exchange rate you will manually set.

Static price type is a feature that enables users to create trade ads at a fixed Naira exchange rate per BTC which will never change.

Provide your Price Exchange Rate in Naira (buying price) based on dynamic price type OR Price per BTC based on the static price. For example: A dynamic price will be like 380 Naira/USD while a static price will be 2,500,623 Naira/BTC.

Your Price: Is the current price per BTC that appears. If dynamic, it will change based on the Blockchain’s API multiplied by USD Price Exchange Rate which you provided in the text field. If static, it will remain the same as the Price per BTC you inputted.

Set your minimum transaction limit and maximum transaction limit.

If you select Dynamic price type, you get the option to set your maximum price limit. This is optional, if you set this rate, no matter the bitcoin price rises, it will never surpass the max. price limit you set.
