International cryptocurrency exchange KuCoin adds local payment methods for European users trough partnership with BTC Direct
Cryptocurrency exchange KuCoin integrated the payment api solution of BTC Direct. European users are now able to trade bitcoin and altcoins with local payment methods such as iDEAL, Bancontact, Sofort and many more.
BTC Direct is one of the oldest and best known bitcoin brokers in Europe. The Dutch company has been working on an integrated payment api for quite some time. Trezor and Coinomi already integrated the software, making KuCoin the third big partnership.
Act fast during bull run
This software integration allows European investors to buy bitcoin and other currencies on the KuCoin exchange directly with euros. This is good news for investors who want to act fast during this bull run.
The integration of BTC Direct allows investors to use all known payment methods. Unlike a bank transfer, these payments are processed immediately, and the cryptocurrencies are immediately sent to the right address.
Davy Stevens, CEO of BTC Direct: ‘We are proud that our service is integrated in a renowned exchange like KuCoin. This collaboration allows us to combine the expertise and ease of use of both platforms’.
Johnny Lyu, CEO of KuCoin: ‘Our user base in Europe continues to grow. Partly thanks to this integration, it will become even easier for Europeans to trade in cryptocurrency on our platform. We are delighted to be able to rely on BTC Direct’s many years of experience’.
