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 are looking to buy cryptocurrency with cash, you can read our articles on Irish Bitcoin & Crypto ATMs. If you're looking for a solid EU-based exchange, we recommend CoinMate which we have used for years and have low fees and support for euro. Alternatively we recommend which are a little tricker to use, but have a much wider range of pairs. If you want to use your credit/debit card to buy crypto, we recommend UK based CEX. If you'd like to use a mobile app to buy your crypto, we recommend Coinbase who offer $10 free bitcoin on your first purchase of $100 or more. If you'd like to trade peer-to-peer we recommend LocalCoinSwap or if you'd like to swap one crypto for another, we recommend Changelly.
