“We are very excited about Dash being added to BitPanda and to MaRSe. We are focused on improving access to Dash for users across the planet and it’s exciting to see spikes in demand from places like Europe and Russia. Firstly, BitPanda is the type of high quality broker we need on the Dash ecosystem; they offer multiple payment options as well as Bitcoin and Ethereum integration so it’s huge news for European users. Secondly, MaRSe is the largest and most reputable Russian exchange for bitcoin and now Dash, so we expect trading volumes to increase.”
The European BitPanda exchange formerly known as Coinimal has a broad reach and offers a range of payment options for its users. The platform has included DASH following an increased demand for the cryptocurrency among its user base, allowing them to make an instant purchase by paying with VISA/MasterCard powered credit cards, Sofort, SEPA, Neteller, Skrill or EPS/GiroPay. Meanwhile, those in Moscow can now walk into MaRSe outlet and trade DASH for Rubles or vice versa.
