The US and Canada are among the markets where blockchain-based cryptocurrencies have gained popularity, especially in the cryptocurrency space.
But there are still a few hurdles to overcome in Canada before a major exchange like Coinbase or Kraken can accept them.
The US is the only country where people can actually trade cryptocurrencies and there’s been a lot of buzz around them, but there’s also been some concerns about how that will be handled.
Coinbase is Canada’s largest exchange, with about 1.4 million customers, and it’s one of the biggest in the country.
In the past few months, a few major cryptocurrency exchanges have started accepting cryptocurrencies in their currencies, including Bitstamp, Kraken and Coinbase.
It’s also not the first time this has happened, as several other major exchange operators have been working on the same thing.
“For us it’s a very big deal.
For us, it’s our second major exchange.
For them, it is a very significant step.
It opens up their wallet and it opens up a lot more avenues to the people,” said Scott Moore, general manager at Bitstamps in an interview with CoinDesk.
He said the company is also looking at ways to expand the use of their platform, and that it’s been an easy way for customers to convert to other currencies.
“Our team has been working really hard to make sure that it works for everyone,” he said.
It was one of those things that happened at Coinbase, where a few weeks ago they introduced the first exchange for Ethereum, which is essentially an offshoot of Bitcoin.
Coinbase was able to do that by making it easy to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, and there were many customers who started to do so after that.
The exchange also started accepting cryptocurrency as well as fiat currency, which has led to a lot fewer people complaining about issues with Coinbase’s platform.
But as the platform has gotten more popular, people have started to ask questions about whether that would be okay in Canada.
“We’re looking into it, but we’re not yet ready to make a decision on whether it’s something we want to do,” said Moore.
