What is CoinCorner?

CoinCorner is a bitcoin exchange with its own wallet for mobile and desktop use. This gives you one secure tool to buy, sell, store and transfer your bitcoin.

You can use CoinCorner if you’re at least 18 years of age.

Using it to buy bitcoin is as simple as creating an account, depositing funds and then making your purchase.

You can find all of its other features within a simple user-friendly layout that anyone can use.

It’s a peer-to-peer exchange, so you can trade with other users at potentially competitive prices, and it’s designed to be just as easy as buying something from a shop.

What currencies does CoinCorner accept?

CoinCorner lets you deposit funds in euros and pounds, although the available payment methods may vary for each. This means you will face an exchange rate when converting your Canadian dollars to euros or pounds.

What countries is CoinCorner available in?

You can use CoinCorner anywhere in the world, although it’s designed for use in Europe, which means many of the deposit options are not available elsewhere, including in Canada. You can use a 3-D Secure Scheme Visa or MasterCard to deposit funds from Canada, however you will face an exchange rate when the money is converted to either euros or pounds by your credit card provider.

Payment methods

You can make deposits to your CoinCorner account using the following methods. Keep in mind some of these methods will not work if you have a Canadian bank account or are located in Canada. As mentioned above, you should be able to use a credit card from Canada. Many of these methods work from Europe only.

    • Bank transfer
    • Debit and credit card
    • Neteller

    You can make withdrawals from your CoinCorner account using the following methods. Keep in mind some may not work from Canada.
