By supporting these EUR fiat trading pairs, KuCoin strengthens its presence across the European crypto market, which continues to see strong growth. Lowering the barriers to buying cryptocurrency with fiat currencies is a crucial step in onboarding more traders looking to set up their crypto portfolios. The addition of EUR fiat trading pairs will also provide a better fiat-to-crypto trading experience with high liquidity and security for global crypto users.
On March 23, KuCoin launched SEPA Payments to provide the most straightforward fiat-to-crypto exchange experience. Through SEPA transfers, users can deposit EUR to their exchange account for any cryptocurrency-related purchase through the “Fast Buy” channel.
KuCoin CEO Johnny Lyu commented on the EUR pairs support, “The new EUR spot trading pairs in the fiat-to-crypto service deployed by KuCoin is another major milestone after the addition of BRL a week ago. We hope this will bring excellent convenience to our local users and those who prefer to use euro. It is extremely exciting to add two fiat currencies with spot trading pairs within such a short time, which also reflects the efficient implementation capability of KuCoin’s strategic deployment this year. KuCoin strongly believes that providing a secure and stable bridge between fiat and cryptocurrencies will bring a better experience to crypto users, which is crucial for crypto mass adoption. In the nearest future, KuCoin plans to support more fiat trading pairs in the spot market thus becoming the best place to explore the crypto world with fiat for global users.”
On June 20, KuCoin added support for the Brazilian Real (BRL), which is now traded against USDT, BTC, and ETH through direct conversions on its spot market.
