The Bitcoin exchange market is heating up all across Europe, as several exchanges are trying to gain a foothold in this very competitive market. Ever since the Bitstamp incident in January of this year, there has been a clear need for more Bitcoin exchanges in Europe. Anycoin Direct is looking to conquer the Eastern European market.
Anycoin Direct – Rapid Expansion
Even though, the Anycoin Direct Bitcoin exchange has not been in operation for that long – compared to several other European Bitcoin exchanges – the company has made big strides up until this point. In September of 2014, Anycoin Direct unveiled some of their expansions plans for Europe when their service became available to all SEPA-supported countries.
But their hunger wasn’t stilled from adding most of the Western European countries to their customer base, as there remained another part of Europe that was vastly unconquered by Bitcoin exchanges. Bitcoin and Eastern Europe have always had a bit of a love/hate relationship, and there is still a lot of tension when mentioning digital currency in that part of Europe.
However, Anycoin Direct is trying to become a household name in the Eastern European Bitcoin market by expanding their services in that direction. The plan is to offer wire transfers which are made internally within the same bank. As a result of this strategy, funds are sent and received instantly from one account to another. This brings another benefit to the table for all customers: the seller gets paid instantly and the buyer receives his/her Bitcoin instantly as well. No more waiting around for 1-5 business days until a transaction clears. Or figuring out whether or not the wire transfer will be blocked by the issuing bank, like what happened earlier this year.
Trustpay – Supporting 16 Countries & 10 Currencies
Expansion to the Eastern part of Europe will not be easy, as most governments are rather hostile towards Bitcoin and other digital currencies. However, by offering the Trustpay service to 16 new countries and supporting 10 local currencies, the first major step towards digital currency adoption has been taken.
The Eastern European countries that can use the Trustpay service include: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia. But there are some other countries on the list as well, as Greece, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Turkey are eligible for the Trustpay service as well.
Because of this expansionary move, Anycoin Direct brings Bitcoin’s best aspects to customers all across Europe. By using Trustpay, Bitcoin’s speed of transaction, ease-of-use and availability are now at your disposal if you live in any of the 16 supported countries.
