In response to customer demand, we're pleased to now facilitate credit and debit card purchases of cryptocurrencies on the Bitfinex platform.
From 20/12/19 12:30 PM UTC, customers can use their credit or debit cards to purchase cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, tether (USDt), ether and other ERC20 tokens listed on Bitfinex.
In an integration with specialist third-party providers Mercuryo and OWNR Wallet, Bitfinex customers will have access to the seamless processing of card transactions, protected by the highest levels of security. Unverified customers will be able to purchase certain cryptocurrencies using a credit or debit card directly via Mercuryo, subject to restrictions in its terms and conditions, while OWNR will only support card payments made by verified Bitfinex customers.
The introduction of credit and debit card support once again demonstrates our ongoing commitment to engaging with new customers to grow the wider crypto community.
