Coinbase customers now have an ability to purchase Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin instantly for up to $ 25 000 using a US bank account.

Our mission is to make Coinbase the most trusted, safe, and easy-to-use digital currency exchange. Instant purchases make it significantly easier and faster for customers to invest in the digital currency ecosystem. Reducing the time to receive digital currency has been a highly requested feature and we are pleased to provide this improved experience for our customers.

As noted in the company's blog, earlier users who bought cryptos via bank transfers had to wait for few days to receive their funds.

At the same time, instant purchases are still only available to US users, but Coinbase representatives promised to soon expand opportunities for other countries.

What can we say a conclusion? This new feature looks interesting for US cryptotraders on the background of Bitcoin and Ethereum price rise

The largest US cryptocurrency company Coinbase announced the expansion of partnership with a London startup WeGift.

Using the Coinbase wallet, American users can buy gift certificates from dozens of retailers, including Uber, Nike and Gap.

To do this, users need to visit the website of the WeGift service and associate it with the Coinbase wallet. As a bonus, when purchasing gift certificates, users do not have to pay a withdrawal fee.

Earlier, this opportunity from Coinbase and WeGift was available only in a few EU countries.
