Ask Price


The ask price represents the minimum price that a seller is willing to take for an asset.

Understanding the Term

An ask price, or an offer price is the lowest price that a seller can agree to accept for a certain asset in a bid or the minimum amount that they want to receive in return for the unit they are parting with.

It’s an important element of the “bid and ask” two-way system used for price quoting, which exists in both the traditional and crypto markets.


Asks are the selling prices set in a base currency for a unit of the trading asset by those holding the asset and looking to sell.
