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. Looking for an Irish based broker? Try Bitcove. 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 LocalBitcoins or LocalCoinSwap or if you'd like to swap one crypto for another, we recommend Changelly.
