Regulated Exchange for Europe
Users on Coinmate.io can quickly trade bitcoin with instant orders or set their market prices to speculate on bitcoin price. The exchange can be accessed through the API, allowing advanced traders to build trade-bots. User verification is completed within one business day, requiring photo ID and proof of address for individuals. Companies seeking to create accounts will need additional verification. Coinmate.io does not provide services to US citizens.
European users in the 34 SEPA countries can deposit Euros in as little as one business day. Once deposited, Euros are converted into dollars. Coinmate.io processes withdrawals twice a day for increased security. Coinmate also claims to practice the best security procedures from the financial industry, providing bank grade security SSL encryption and 2-Factor-Authentication on important actions. The company also claims to hold over 95% of funds in cold storage in multi-sig wallets.
“We have a long experience with financial management and IS/IT development. Security is a top priority for us,” said Roman Valihrach, CEO of Confirmo. “Our sister platform BitcoinPay.com came second last year in the 2014 Starcube.cz Accelerator Program, and with that experience, we set out to make a truly user-friendly exchange for Bitcoin fans across Europe and beyond.”
Coinmate.io seeks to provide users a great option for their bitcoin trading needs. Access to the site’s API makes Coinmate.io an attractive option for experienced traders. While US citizens cannot access the service, Coinmate.io fills some of the voids in terms of bitcoin trading for European users. Users that verify an account through the end of May will receive a $1 bonus. According to the developers, it took over two years to complete the Coinmate.io project.
