From day one, we believed that everyone should be able to transition seamlessly between the crypto and fiat worlds and so we built Bitwala. Over 40,000 of you have pre-registered for Bitwala in the past months and after a year of tirelessly working hard to bridge the crypto and fiat worlds, we have amazing news…
World, say hello to Bitwala!
Today we’re excited to announce that we have hit the biggest milestone in our journey. We now offer crypto-friendly bank accounts together with our partner solarisBank that are authorised and regulated by the BaFin and the European Central Bank (ECB).
It is the first time ever, that users can manage both Bitcoin and Euro deposits in one place with the safety and convenience of a German bank account. Bitwala accounts come with a debit card and a built-in bitcoin wallet with integrated cryptocurrency trading.
As with any bank account in Germany, all Euro deposits up to €100,000 are protected by the German Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGS).
“We built the new account putting our customers first. No longer do you have to wire your liquidity to separate exchange accounts with frail fund protection measures outside of Germany. No longer do you have to accept excessive fees for trading. Trading with Bitwala is fast and reliable and our pricing highly competitive”, Ben Jones - Bitwala’s Chief Technical Officer and co-founder.
Let the onboarding begin
We are first launching our accounts in Germany and we plan to expand within the coming months. Onboarding will start from the top of the list and we’ll be onboarding substantially more people over the next months, so you shouldn’t have to wait long if you are further on the list.
Can’t wait to get your hands on the Bitwala account? Refer your friends and move faster up the list.
We have also prepared something special to all of you who have signed up to our waitlist from the early days of our journey. As a thank you for our early supporters, the first 15,000 people on our waitlist will receive a limited edition card packaging once they place their card order!
Join the revolution today
We can’t wait to have you open your Bitwala account and experience the true blockchain banking experience. We also wanted to give a big shout out to everyone who is part of the Bitwala community. You have been supporting us from the start and we couldn’t have done it without you 🎉
