Bybit users can directly buy crypto with their credit or debit cards using fiat currencies, the cryptocurrency exchange company announced.
The launch of Bybit’s credit and debit card payments system “will make buying crypto as simple as making any purchase, such as books and clothes, online,” the company said.
“Bybit users can now easily buy crypto assets such as Bitcoin, collect NFTs on our marketplace, or deploy their capital in other ways to reach their personal financial goals,” said Ben Zhou co-founder and CEO of Bybit.
Currently, users can pay via the Visa or Mastercard system.
Bybit said that it supports various fiat currencies, including the euro, U.S. dollar, and pound sterling. The service is available to any eligible user with a Bybit account.
Bybit has also waived fees on credit and debit card purchases for customers from the European Economic Area and the UK until May 17, to celebrate this new integration.
The company said that following May 17, “customers who purchase crypto on Bybit through the integration will enjoy some of the lowest fees for this kind of service in the industry, starting at 1.1% for purchases made from the European Union.”
“This integration brings next-level convenience, so users can access world-class liquidity and reliability offered by Bybit,” said Zhou.
Established in 2018, Bybit has been offering a professional platform to help traders find an ultra-fast matching engine, excellent customer service and multilingual community support.
In a recent announcement, Bybit also said that it has launched leveraged token products.
Blockchain.News reported that the token products were released on the trading platform’s spot exchange starting with two leveraged bitcoin tokens, BTC3L and BTC3S.
Bybit recommended these leveraged tokens as short-term investment vehicles, which will allow traders to reap the benefits of leverage with no margin, collateral or liquidation risks, the report added.
In one of its major deals, Bybit was successful in securing a multi-year partnership deal with Red Bull Racing.
Blockchain.News reported that following a 3-year deal, Singapore-based crypto assets trading platform Bybit has become the Principal Team Partner for Oracle Red Bull Racing, one of the most successful Formula 1 team.
As announced by Red Bull, the deal is worth $50 million annually and will be paid in cash and the trading platform’s native token, the BitDAO (BIT) tokens.
