The BSV-dedicated platform now accepts users from an expanded selection of countries worldwide, including—for the first time—the United States and Australia. The expansion also extends to some of the most populous Bitcoin markets in the world including the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brazil, Turkey and New Zealand.
The rollout follows the successful European launch of the platform in phase one, which covered countries such as Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Romania and the United Kingdom. The launch phase also saw the platform accepting users from Canada.
Alongside the launch, website owners are now able to embed dedicated widgets onto their sites, allowing visitors to directly purchase BSV.
Users are now required to follow KYC procedures when creating their account. Once they’re signed up, users can buy up to €100 in BSV in a basic account, or up to €10,000 in an upgraded account. Minimum orders of €50 for credit/debit cards and €100 for bank transfer make it a low-barrier options for buying BSV.
The platform is a joint effort between CoinGeek and Danish crypto exchange Coinify. BuyBSV.com was set up to provide a “new, super-simple way to buy BSV,” at a time of increasing global interest in the cryptocurrency.
As part of its commitment to the wider bitcoin ecosystem, CoinGeek has announced all profits from its share of BuyBSV.com will be donated to the Bitcoin Association, helping to fund its work in building, developing and promoting BSV.
This is very good expansion. We are also presuring to get purchase fees down as a pass through from us..https://t.co/MaWnnA4GmL

Ahead of the forthcoming protocol upgrade, Genesis, in February 2020, Bitcoin SV is the only blockchain technology platform that massively scales now, has utility now, and is committed to its “set-in-stone protocol” which developers can use to build and innovate. The February upgrade will return Bitcoin as close as possible to its origins, as initially intended by Satoshi Nakamoto in the Bitcoin whitepaper.
The upgrade coincides with the next significant event in the Bitcoin calendar—the CoinGeek Conference in London, which will take place on February 20-21, 2020.
