Kraken, the renowned cryptocurrency exchange, has acquired our partner, Glidera! This means the rapid expansion of Glidera’s buy/sell service coverage from just 21 US states to now 49 US states, Canada, and soon others (sorry New York!).
This is wonderful news for the Bitcoin user community amidst the recently swelling interest in Bitcoin worldwide.
It was a bummer for the Bitcoin community that Circle, the popular service for retail buying and selling of Bitcoin, a few weeks ago announced they will discontinue the Bitcoin buy/sell feature. Now, many crypto enthusiasts, especially in the US, are scrambling to find a convenient alternative for their regular Bitcoin purchases. The forums are filling up with both newbies and long-term HODLers wondering where to turn. Well, the news of Kraken and Glidera brings us just what the doctor ordered.
The expansion has already begun! If you’ve been wanting, hoping, praying for Glidera to grow and begin providing their service in your neck of the woods, your wait may just be over! Our users are already reporting that they can now buy and sell Bitcoin in states previously unsupported by Glidera. Curious if your state works? Launch your Airbitz app and give the Glidera plugin a try today! Let us know what you think.
