Card Purchases for Bitcoin Now Available in the USA

The recent upswing in the value of bitcoin, edging past $1,800 this week, has significantly increased demand for this digital currency here at Bitstamp. So, what better time to make buying bitcoin even easier for our US customers?

That’s why we are delighted to announce that we have now added the USA to the list of countries where our customers can buy bitcoin by Visa or MasterCard credit/debit card.*
