Step 8: Cryptocurrencies in Use in the Marketplace
Bitcoin, a type or category of Cryptocurrency has been very prominent during its tenure of operation. Since the first pace of the Bitcoin blockchain, it created a huge delay which made the users go mad and hence, they adopted other cryptocurrencies.
As of now, the Dream Market has incorporated three virtual currencies viz., Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin and Monero.
When a new user has logged in and tries to transact, they will only be able to see one payment option that is Bitcoin. This is because the Bitcoin option is inbuilt or you may say set as by default. To add the other options of Cryptocurrency, you have to do it manually.

How to Add and Withdraw Monero?
The procedure to add Monero is same as the procedure to add Bitcoin Cash except for a slight difference. That is the suffix of the URL. After you login, type ‘xmr/Wallet’ at the end of the URL. In this also, you have to make sure that the W is in uppercase. Else, you will encounter a system error. Finally you have added all the other cryptocurrencies. On the top right side under the payment method you will find Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Monero. You can choose the withdrawal as per your preference.
