To get started, users should visit the ‘Trade’ page on Coinbase.com or tap on the ‘Buy’ or ‘Sell’ options on their iOS or Android apps to add a credit or debit card and buy digital currency.
Founded in 2012, the Coinbase app and site supports digital wallets and digital currency transactions. It also founded the Global Digital Asset Exchange, where bitcoin, and now ethereum, can be transacted.
The company has hinted at global expansion in the Asian and Asian-Pacific region in recent times and has recently received investment and entered into a partnership with the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, raising $10.5 million from investors to aid its launch of services in Japan.
