About the company:

VirWoX is a global virtual stock exchange established in late 2007 for trading the SLL (Second Life Lindens) digital currency.

Today, VirWoX is a leading stock floor by cryptocurrency exchange. It is also considered the first by the number of users (around 100,000) and the trade volume (over 29 million euros).

In 2011, VirWoX opened its first exchange of one cryptocurrency to another virtual currency BTC/SLL (Linden dollars from the Second Life game).

VirWoX serves as an intermediary for obtaining bitcoins with the help of a credit card.

VirWoX is managed by Virtual World Services GmbH situated in Australia.

The company cares about security and confidentiality. A client's personal data is required to transfer money to his/her bank account. The information becomes available when a client deposits funds through PayPal or Skrill. VirWoX ensures safety of clients' personal data except for the cases when it is required by governmental bodies.

How VirWoX operates

A client has to open an account and top it up with the currency he/she wants to exchange.

There are two main ways of exchange:

Instant exchange: in this case, the client accepts the current most reasonable rate and places a market order.

Most beneficial exchange: in this case, the client places a limit order and specifies the desired rate. The order will be executed only if someone accepts the offered rate.

Technically, VirWoX supports only the exchange of BTC to SLL, despite the fact that a client cannot buy bitcoins through PayPal directly. There is another way. However, the process is rather complicated and the commission for all transactions may be as high as 10%. Step-by-step instruction on buying BTC through PayPal with VirWoX:

  • Top up your account at VirWoX via PayPal with EUR or USD.
  • Buy SLL for deposited EUR or USD.
  • Exchange SLL for BTC through VirWoX.
  • Transfer BTC to your own bitcoin wallet.


VirWoX charges SLL 50 (currently around $0.20) plus 2.9% for market orders on BTC/SLL. Fees for limit orders depend on the account trade volume and vary from 0.78% to 3.9%.

VirWoX charges BTC 0.01 for BTC withdrawals. BTC deposits are free of charge.

Payment options

PayPal: the system charges the company for its services and this sums is taken from a client's deposit. The commission size depends on the currency, the client's location, and the transaction size; that is why the total sum is known only after the transaction is completed. For example, the current commission for deposits in EUR for clients with their own PayPal account makes up EUR 0.35 plus 3.4% of the transaction.

Payment cards, Skrill: Skrill also charges certain payments for its services that are taken from a client's deposit. The current commission for deposits in EUR for clients with their own Skrill account makes up EUR 0.39 plus 3.5% of the transaction.

Paysafe: The 20% commission is charged for funds depositing.

SOFORTbanking: The 2.5% commission is charged depending on the transaction value with the minimum value of EUR 0.25 (if the transaction value is below EUR 10) that will be taken from a client's deposit.

Transfers of virtual currencies (SLL, ACD, or OMC) are free.

Registration with VirWoX is also free of charge. However, if a client did not use his/her account for over 12 months, the company charges EUR 2 (or its equivalent in another currency) per month.


  • the simplest and probably the only way to buy bitcoins via PayPal or Skrill.


  • high commissions of up to 10%.

I started trading with VirWox recently in last year. They have really supportive and have excellent customer support. Even I drop a message they will call me back instantly. They have a variety of platforms according to customer need. So far, I would definitely recommend to at least have a look around, and try out if interested.

I admit the service here is good, but it's just camouflage, they are just being friendly so that I don't close my account. I don't like sudden changes, today and tomorrow, the rules are different. They change the rules at will. They have a very small leverage and do not allow clients to open multiple orders at the same time. And, there is a huge problem with tech support and the trading functions on the website do not seem to work. I dont recommend anybody to touch this broker. I've seen spreads upto 80 pips and always freezing platform during critcal news times.

My forex trading life is easy and reliable with VirWox broke. I have experienced a professional service and perfect execution on their platform so far, which is essential for me to make a successful trade. Also, they have low spread and the fastest payment service in the market. so I have satisfied with their professional service.

I tried the demo account of VirWox and I had a decent experience. The platform did not have any huge technical issue. Generally, my trades went smoothly. However, my main issue is that they are not regulated which means that there is not assurance that my funds will be secured if I decide to open an account with them. Honestly, I am not sure if I will open a real account with them.
