bitFlyer launches cryptocurrency trading app

Cryptocurrency exchange bitFlyer has launched the bitFlyer app across Europe and the USA. The app, available for free on both iOS and Android, will allow users to buy and sell Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Monacoin (MONA) and Lisk (LSK).

The bitFlyer app aims to make it even easier for users to buy and sell, whilst still adhering to the same robust KYC and verification standards as the bitFlyer website.
Since 2014, bitFlyer has been trusted by millions across the globe as the most secure platform to easily buy and sell cryptocurrencies, and remains the only exchange licensed to operate across the US, Japan and Europe combined. This app launch is the latest development in a major growth strategy by the European and US businesses, to match what is already available to millions of bitFlyer Japan customers, where bitFlyer is recognised as a household name and one of the longest-standing cryptocurrency exchanges.
Yuzo Kano, bitFlyer founder and CEO of bitFlyer USA, says: “With the new bitFlyer apps, we are bringing the reliability, security and experience of Japan's market leader to our European and American customers, closing the gap between our service offerings and creating a truly global and regulated exchange product.”
Andy Bryant, Co-head and COO at bitFlyer Europe, says: “With our Buy/Sell platform, we strived to create a simpler, faster and even more transparent experience where everyone can buy cryptocurrencies in just a few minutes and from a reputable source. Now with the bitFlyer app, this is even more convenient for users.
“We are staying true to our mission of making the world simpler with blockchain, by making the transparency, security and simplicity of our robust trading platforms available via a quick, single app download.”
The bitFlyer app was created with users in mind, making it even easier for those who prefer navigating from a smartphone to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. Current bitFlyer users can log on to the app with their existing account details, while new traders can register by using an email address and inputting the relevant information for KYC procedures to deposit and begin trading.
