New Irish Bitcoin Exchange Bitsane launched

We have come across a new Irish-based Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency exchange called Bitsane which has launched in the last little while. They are registered in Fitzwilliam Street, although this is a virtual office so it’s unknown if they’re actually operating out of there, or run by Irish people.

However, having a look through what they’re offering, they allow trading between EUR and Dollars into Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Iconomi and Dashcoin, using a Maker (0.15% fee) / Taker (0.25% fee) model, and accepting wire transfers, OKpay and Advcash.

When we looked at the site, due to liquidity more than anything else, it was about €10 out of line with the average BTC/EUR price at the time of writing.


If you're looking to buy bitcoin or cryptocurrencies, we can recommend a few options that we use ourselves. For a low-fee EU based exchange, we recommend CoinMate. If you want to get crypto quickly with a debit or credit card, we recommend CEX. If you would like to trade peer-to-peer using cash or bank transfers, we recommend LocalCoinSwap or if you'd like to register for an exchange with a solid mobile app you can make bank payments or debit/credit card payments to, we recommend If you'd like to use a mobile app and pay with a linked debit or credit card and earn a bonus €9 on your first €90 purchase with Coinbase.
