Post: Top 4 Crypto Exchange Affiliate Programs of Early 2022

Every surge in attention to bitcoin ignites the launch of new crypto projects: exchanges, payment services, apps, and media. And, all these projects seem to now be launching an affiliate program.

However, not all programs are equally convenient. Some have ambiguous conditions, while others are quite modest when it comes to the payout.

In this post, we’ll look into the key factors for a smooth affiliate experience and examine 5 of the top crypto affiliate programs of early 2022.

Types of crypto affiliate programs

The specifics of a crypto affiliate program depend on the type of business that the company runs. Crypto exchanges incentivize trading, thus compensating affiliates for new active traders in the form of a paid commission. Wallets, apps and other solutions are on the hunt for new users, so they reward affiliates by CPL (Cost Per Lead) or CPS (Cost Per Sale) models.

Crypto exchange services that allow for instant swaps between cryptocurrency pairs or crypto and fiat, want to maximize the number of exchange transactions. Such programs have the most convenient conditions for affiliates.

Here’s why:

  • Exchanging crypto is a service with a low entrance requirement. These services allow you to swap crypto in small amounts, starting from $20-30. This makes them appealing to a broader audience and thus are easier to promote.
  • Such programs usually have clear conditions and simple reward systems, which is especially convenient if you’re not a professional affiliate marketer.
  • Crypto exchanges usually provide affiliates with a variety of promotion tools, from traditional referral links to widgets and API integration.

All of these features are presented in the following affiliate programs, which makes them a great tool to generate a revenue stream.

The cookie duration is not specified, however, so it’s not clear for how long the user will be attributed to an affiliate. The minimum payout is 0.01BTC so, if you don’t have a steady traffic flow, it might take you a while to be able to withdraw your rewards.

Moving on

Various crypto affiliate programs, especially if the companies that launched them operate in the same domain, are in fact quite similar when you consider the amount of the payout and the conditions. But regardless of which program you stick with, keep the basics in mind. Cryptocurrencies are a financial instrument and require if not utter expertise but at least caution and diligence. So, when promoting a crypto-related product to a broad audience, use disclaimers and be sure to warn your audience not to rush into things and be prepared for the ultimate volatility of the crypto market.
