Not only is FTX a custodial crypto exchange, but it’s also an easy platform to buy and sell crypto! You can buy and sell crypto directly on FTX:
Although buying crypto with cash is not supported directly in Exodus, you can buy crypto in FTX and link your FTX account to the FTX Exchange app in Exodus. You will be able to view, send, receive, and exchange your FTX funds inside the Exodus wallet.
Only supported assets will be shown in the FTX Exchange app in Exodus. You can see all supported assets here.
While you can't deposit USD directly into the USD wallet in your FTX portfolio in Exodus, you can deposit USD into FTX and it will reflect in the USD wallet in your FTX portfolio in Exodus.
In order to deposit fiat, you need to have completed level 2 identity verification/KYC.

Are there alternatives to centralized exchanges?
If a centralized exchange is not something you're interested in using, there are other services that can connect buyers to sellers in a peer-to-peer (P2P) system:
Bitcoin ATMs are another option. Each ATM works slightly differently, but you can usually visit an ATM in person to purchase Bitcoin with your debit card, credit card, or cash.

What are stablecoins?
A stablecoin is a crypto token typically pegged to a fiat currency, commodity, or its supply is managed by an algorithm. They are called stablecoins because unlike other crypto, their value is stable, and doesn't fluctuate based on market conditions.
We currently support several stablecoins: TUSD, DAI, USDC, GUSD, PAX, PAXG, BUSD, USDT, DAI, and USDP.
You can buy and sell stablecoins with fiat using your Coinbase or Gemini account. Alternatively, if you have other digital assets you can use the Exodus built-in exchange to trade other digital assets for these stablecoins.
This is the closest option Exodus offers for holding fiat currency. You can read more about stablecoins in this article.
Which platform should I choose?
Each platform in this article will work slightly differently so we encourage you to explore them all and see what works best for you.
Please note: Remember to always check the local laws and regulations when buying and selling cryptocurrencies.
