How To Buy and Sell Bitcoin In The UK?
As the cryptocurrency industry overcomes boundaries and country borders, it gets easier to buy Bitcoin in the UK, and not much different than buying it from, say, Canada. If you’d prefer to use businesses that are from the UK, among the leading UK-registered exchanges are Coinfloor and CEX.io.
You may also use services like eToro, BC Bitcoin, Changelly, Coinmama, Wirex or Spectrocoin. While Changelly lets you instantly swap cryptocurrencies for one another, eToro allows for Bitcoin purchases and margin trading, and BC Bitcoin acts as a one-stop-shop for all types of crypto-related services. Meanwhile, Spectrocoin and Wirex also allow you to buy and purchase the most popular cryptocurrencies, as well as use them for everyday purchases with a dedicated Spectrocoin or Wirex debit card.
Other popular non-UK exchanges that accept GBP deposits are:
- Coinbase Pro
- GBX Digital Asset Exchange
- Lykke Exchange
- Binance Jersey
If you're more interested in a marketplace, LocalBitcoins, BitBargain and Bittylicious will put you in touch with a seller in the UK.
