Bitcoin wallet HandCash has announced its expansion into over 30 European countries and now covers the entire European Economic Area (EEA).
HandCash revealed that it’s expanding to Belgium, Estonia, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Norway, Turkey, Northern Ireland, and two dozen other countries.
For now, users in these countries can buy BSV and top up their wallets, after which they will have access to every other application in the Bitcoin space. Most apps integrate HandCash as it facilitates seamless, quick, convenient peer-to-peer payments. Users can enjoy a casual game on Haste Arcade, get a unique virtual NFT pet on Duro Dogs, play over 70 games on Peergame, including Blackjack and Roulette, or even go head-to-head in a friendly game of chess on PowChess.
The signup for HandCash in the updated list of EEA countries will require just a birthdate and the full name of the new users for the first $50. For the next tier, they’ll need to scan a valid passport, ID card, or driver’s license and take a photo of their face.
In its interaction with its loyal users, HandCash also gave updates about some of its other products. On its integration of popular stablecoin USDC, which it teased a few weeks back, and which founder Alex Agut talked about with CoinGeek, HandCash revealed that the team was working tirelessly to introduce the new feature to its users.
As for off-ramps, the wallet is awaiting regulatory approval to move ahead with the feature.
HandCash announced the addition of in-app fiat on-ramps in February this year. This makes BSV available to anyone with a credit card or an iOS/Android smartphone with a few clicks, trimming down what has previously been a tiered process that involved 2-3 different service providers.
