bitFlyer launches ‘Instant Buy’ for cryptocurrencies

RELATED TOPICS​

Cryptocurrency exchange bitFlyer has launched Instant Buy on its Buy/Sell exchange platform in Europe. The feature, available on desktop and smartphone, allows users to buy cryptocurrency directly from bitFlyer, using credit card, debit card or local instant transfer methods such as Sofort, iDeal and GiroPay.

Instant Buy is built for users looking for the fastest and simplest way to buy cryptocurrencies, as well as beginners looking for an all-in-one solution for purchasing, storing and securing their cryptocurrency investments.

Andy Bryant, Co-head and COO at bitFlyer Europe, says: “Instant Buy is the latest upgrade to bitFlyer’s Buy/Sell platform, as part of our goal to create a simpler, faster and transparent experience when it comes to buying virtual currencies. By making it similar to that of a traditional e-commerce experience, we are helping bringing cryptocurrency to a mainstream audience, while also giving experienced users a faster and simpler way to get their currency.”
 
This new feature, following bitFlyer’s recent app launch, is the latest development in a major growth strategy by the European side of the business in line with its vision to break down barriers to entry that many face while investing in cryptocurrency. Whilst the bitFlyer app has made it even easier for users to buy and sell from their smartphones, Instant Buy makes it more convenient for users to buy coins using their preferred payment method.

bitFlyer launched in the USA in November 2017, followed by bitFlyer Europe in January 2018, both as fully owned subsidiaries of Japan-based bitFlyer, Inc. It is the only cryptocurrency exchange to be licensed in Japan, the US and Europe.
