‘Instant’ Purchases of Cryptocurrencies Enabled
Cryptocurrency exchange startup Coinbase has announced that some users will now be able to access “instant” purchases of bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin.
The new service is currently only available for users making payments from a U.S. bank account and in amounts of under $25,000.
However, Coinbase said it plans to expand the instant purchasing service to other countries “over the coming months.”
The move is likely to be popular with users of the startup’s service, which been the target of criticism over poor customer service.
