Cryptocurrency exchange bitFlyer announced on Thursday its service is now available in the state of Connecticut. bitFlyer reported that its subsidiary, bitFlyer USA, will provider Connecticut residents with buying and selling services for digital assets, which includes Bitcoin and Ethereum, without high priced fees.
bitFlyer also revealed that Connecticut residents may create an account and start interacting with the crypto economy right away, taking advantage of a fiat onramp to buy cryptocurrencies with credit or debit card.
“Accounts can also be funded via wire transfer and PayPal, and experienced users such as institutional investors can take advantage of bitFlyer Lightning, the portal’s professional-grade trading platform built by Wall Street veterans. Users are free to choose whether to trade via their web browser or the bitFlyer mobile application, available for iOS and Android. They can also build a digital asset portfolio by scheduling daily, weekly, monthly, or semi-monthly purchases.”
Speaking about the expansion, bitFlyer COO, Joel Edgerton, stated:
“bitFlyer USA is happy to continue our expansion by adding Connecticut as our 48th state. We have achieved significant growth in our business this year and look forward to bringing our global platform to Connecticut residents.”
As previously reported, bitFlyer describes itself as a Bitcoin exchange and marketplace that is dedicated to providing its customers with convenient and exciting ways to buy, sell, and spend Bitcoins.
“Alongside JADA, the Japan Authority of Digital Assets, bitFlyer hopes to spread the usage of Bitcoin in Japan and around the world, making the process to buy, sell, and spend Bitcoins streamlined and seamless.”
