We’re pleased to announce the expansion of Coinbase services to Singapore. As part of our effort to make bitcoin easy to use throughout the world, customers in Singapore will be able to buy and sell bitcoin with Singapore dollars using Coinbase starting at 8am SGT on Thursday, September 3rd.
Our mission at Coinbase is to make payments more open and efficient around the world. Expanding to Singapore is an important step towards that goal and will make it easier to access bitcoin in one of the financial capitals of the world.
To celebrate the launch, Coinbase will waive its retail conversion fees for Singapore customers of the direct Buy/Sell service, available at Coinbase.com, through September 9 (11:59 Pacific time). To get started, simply sign up for a Coinbase account. As always, please be sure to let us know what you think on Twitter and in our Community Forum.
