By all accounts, the cryptocurrency industry in Europe is booming. The use of digital assets has spread throughout the continent, thriving in tech-savvy cities like London, Zurich, and Amsterdam. The European country of Malta has established itself as a crypto-friendly “blockchain island,” causing investors and businesses to set up shop in the Mediterranean tourist destination. As the European cryptocurrency industry grows, so too does the need for euro trading pairs on digital asset platforms. If you’re looking for a bitcoin, ethereum, bitcoin cash, or stablecoin euro trading pair then look no further than OKCoin.
At OKCoin, we know that cryptocurrency is a global industry, and we’re committed to connecting traders with tokens all over the world. That’s why we’re pleased to be a fiat onramp for the euro, making it easier for European users to trade with confidence.

Why start with a BTC/EUR pair
Bitcoin is the most popular digital currency in the world today. The euro is the official currency of the European Union, home to some of the most innovative and affluent countries in the world. Together, these two assets unlock a world of opportunity.
In 2019, the European cities of Ljubljana in Slovenia and Prague in the Czech Republic were ranked the best cities to spend crypto in the world. In these cities, you can use bitcoin to buy coffee, movie tickets, or a coworking pass. In some cases, you can even use bitcoin to rent an apartment. As more cities adopt BTC as a medium of exchange, token accessibility becomes critical. That’s why we launched a BTC/EUR pair and made 2019 the year of our European expansion.
Get started trading euro digital asset pairs
Ready to get in on the action? Here’s how it works: After creating an account, OKCoin users outside of the United States can deposit and withdraw euros in exchange for some of the leading digital assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Bitcoin Cash. And we’re not stopping there; we’ll be adding even more euro digital asset pairs to OKCoin in the future, so check back frequently for an up-to-date list.
Other European opportunities at OKCoin
Euro exchange pairs aren’t the only big thing to happen at OKCoin this year. We also listed the first euro-backed stablecoin, Stasis EURS (EURS), on the OKCoin platform. This unique token provides an alternative store of value for investors in a US-dollar dominated market. Spot trading with EURS is also available for the following pairs: USD/EURS, EURS/EUR, BTC/EURS.
This year, we also opened our new European OKCoin office in Malta. We are supporting the growth of the European crypto market by upholding our values as a regulation-friendly exchange. Each of our euro exchange pairs are compliant with the Virtual Financial Asset Act (“VFAA”), regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority.
Our European expansion comes on the heels of our office openings in both the US and Latin America last year. As our reach expands, we come ever closer to our mission of making digital assets accessible to the world.
