BCB Group and Bitstamp partner to enable GBP transfers
European cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp is partnering with cryptocurrency prime broker BCB Group to enable investors from the UK to transfer GBP directly to and from their Bitstamp accounts.
Through this partnership, Bitstamp will be able to support deposits and withdrawals directly in GBP, providing increased efficiency and reduced costs for clients. The new GBP service will be available to Bitstamp’s customers by the end of the year.
Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie, Founder & CEO of BCB Group, says: “We are delighted to be partnering with Bitstamp to create an efficient transaction experience for UK investors wishing to deposit and withdraw funds in GBP. We value this partnership not only because it enables UK clients to transact with Bitstamp onshore, rather than having to send funds offshore, but also because it furthers our mission to provide seamless prime services infrastructure covering compliance, trade execution and settlement and custody for clients wishing to access cryptocurrencies."
BCB Group’s range of solutions has been developed to cater to the needs of exchanges, institutions and high net worth clients seeking OTC best execution for their own accounts and who wish to offer cryptocurrency products and services to their own clients.
Bitstamp, which is the world's longest-standing crypto exchange and widely regarded as a pioneer in the industry, has placed an emphasis on reliable and secure service ever since it opened its doors in 2011. "This is a great fit," says Nejc Kodrič, Bitstamp CEO. "One of our points of emphasis is providing robust payment rails to our global customer base. We're excited to have BCB Group provide an additional boost to our efforts on that front."
