We’re pleased to announce the expansion of Coinbase services to the United Kingdom, including the ability to trade bitcoin on Coinbase Exchange and to buy/sell bitcoin with GBP using the Coinbase Wallet. We are also excited to announce the addition of BTC/GBP and BTC/EUR currency pairs on Coinbase Exchange for UK users.
As part of our effort to make bitcoin easy to use throughout the world, customers in the UK can now:
Credit Euros (via SEPA), British Pounds and US Dollars (via wire transfer) to their Coinbase Wallet to purchase bitcoin from Coinbase or to trade with on Coinbase Exchange.
Trade BTC/USD, BTC/GBP, and BTC/EUR currency pairs on Coinbase Exchange.
Use our full suite of Coinbase Wallet services, including hosted bitcoin wallets, buy/sell service, and merchant tools.
Our mission at Coinbase is to make payments more open and efficient around the world. Expanding to the UK is an important step towards that goal and will make it easier to access bitcoin in one of the financial capitals of the world.
