Cryptocurrency exchange bitFlyer has announced the launch of free iOS and Android apps for the US and Europe. Apps will allow trading in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Monacoin (MONA), and Lisk (LSK).
Trading on apps will handle by bitFlyers wholly-owned subsidiaries bitFlyer EUROPE S.A. and bitFlyer USA, Inc. in Europe and the USA, respectively.
Existing users can download the apps and use them by entering their account details. New users will have to submit their e-mail addresses and submit other details for KYC compliance, and then they begin trading. Thus, users can use their smartphones for trading in cryptocurrencies and will not require access to a laptop for the purpose.
bitFlyer is one of the oldest running cryptocurrency exchanges. It is the only crypto exchange operating in Japan, Europe, and the US. It has also been recognized as one of only 10 exchanges that aren’t faking trading volumes. It recently took part in G20 discussions on standards and regulations for the crypto industry.
Users will have real-time access to prices of various cryptocurrencies as well as the trend in their pricing. All this without interrupting their daily work. Thus, they can make informed decisions instantaneously.
Users have to scan a QR code to send and receive digital currency with BitFlyer.
Yuzo Kano, bitFlyer founder and CEO of bitFlyer USA, said,
We are bringing reliability, security, and experience of Japan’s market leader to our European and American customers.
Andy Bryant, Co-head and COO at bitFlyer Europe, said,
We strived to create a simpler, faster and even more transparent experience…Now with the bitFlyer app, this is even more convenient for users.
New verified users who download the app between October 21 to October 27 will receive €10 or $10 in BTC even if they do not deposit any digital money.
