To better serve the rapidly-growing need for cryptocurrency, Canadian-owned and operated Bitbuy (first established as InstaBT in 2013) has re-launched with a slew of improvements and additions. With low fees, increased usability and brand new features, bitbuy.ca makes access to cryptocurrency both convenient and simple.
“We used to be primarily a buy side platform,” says bitbuy.ca Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jordan Anderson, “Now we’re focusing on facilitating both buy and sell orders. By reducing our fees, we believe users will be enticed to buy and sell in larger quantities.”

Key areas of concerns among users of crypto exchanges include level of customer service, ability to withdraw funds and security. Bitbuy.ca has been redesigned with these factors in mind to give you a clean, neat dashboard. Furthermore, inline with our customer-centric approach, our new website is extremely mobile friendly.
The ability to sell Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum and withdraw Canadian funds directly to your bank account occurs within 24 hours via Interac e-Transfer and within 3-5 days by using an electronic bank transfer. Find out more about how to exchange cryptocurrency and how you can enter the market with fiat currency.
Whether buying or selling, bitbuy.ca has low fees for purchasing at 0.75% and selling at 0.5%. Thanks to bitbuy.ca’s strong relationships with banks, funding and withdrawals to your account can be done from any Canadian bank, without restriction. See our new fee schedule and funding options.
Bitbuy.ca is currently the only Canadian exchange that allows users to login using their Facebook or Google+ account, in addition to e-mail. After you provide proof of your identity, account verification takes between 24-36 hours, a welcoming fact for those looking to quickly enter the crypto market.
Increased Security – 2 Factor Authentication
With security a chief concern, all purchases and withdrawals require SMS verification, with a receipt sent directly to your e-mail.
A new educational portal exists so that bitbuy.ca customers can learn via our Blockchain 101 series. Gaining a greater understanding of blockchain and its many applications is key to participating in the new industry/technology. In addition to the Blockchain 101 articles, we’re upping the frequency of our blog posts with 2-3 new articles coming every week, covering the latest crypto news, guides to new technology, and new features on the bitbuy.ca platform.
