UK-based bitcoin exchange Netagio has launched its new credit card and debit card options for users. Customers of the exchange may now load funds into their Visa or MasterCard accounts and trade them for bitcoin.
CEO Simon Hamblin states:
“Our customers will always be our number one priority. We recently expanded our order books to USD and EUR in response to customer feedback and now also offer a choice of payment methods, with our new credit and debit card payments in addition to the traditional banking payments. The US and Europe are the largest markets for Bitcoin trading, after China, and as such present a great opportunity for retail and institutional investors wishing to access these markets.”
The ability to add credit and debit cards to its platform comes through Netagio’s new partnership with WalPay, an Isle of Man-based payment services provider. WalPay is also claiming to have secured hard core banking relationships and funding for Netagio as part of the exchange’s current growth program.
In September of 2014, the company became the first bitcoin exchange to ever receive an ISAE 3000 accreditation for its superior offline storage of the digital currency, thus proving that its standards are some of the highest the UK has to offer.
Presently, Netagio operates in about 114 countries, and aims to make things quicker and easier for investors to trade bitcoin with GBP, USD and EUR.
