A user account in any exchange generally has various sub-accounts. Therefore, different accounts help you manage your funds conveniently. You will find below account types below under the Account section.

Therefore, using spot trading, users can buy/sell assets at market price. Here also, you will find three different options:
- Limit- Buy/sell at a specific price
- Market- Buy/sell at the current market price
- Stop-Limit- Buy/sell at a limit price once the specific price is achieved
Then, you can select the token pair that you wish to trade from the Market tab. Next, you need to go to the buy or sell section and enter the number of tokens that you wish to buy/sell.

Fiat Account And Fiat Trading
Fiat trading means trading done via P2P orders. If users wish to buy/ sell assets through P2P, then they have to do it via the Fiat account.
For example, if you want to sell some assets through P2P, then you have to first move the assets to the fiat account.
Similarly, if you buy assets via P2P, then the assets will be moved to your fiat account first. You can later transfer it to your spot account to place any market orders.
Margin Account And Margin Trading
