What is BitFlyer?
Launched in April 2014 by Co-founders Takafumi Komiyama and Yuzo Kano, bitFlyer is the biggest Japanese exchange trading in bitcoin. It offers virtual currency exchange and trading services in Japan, the United States, and Europe.
BitFlyer lets you buy and sell bitcoin, as well as other cryptocurrencies using your preferred fiat currency, be it USD, EUR, or JPY. With BitFlyer you can make quick crypto purchases using a bank card and other payment methods. Although BitFlyer is a popular exchange in Japan, it is the best-kept secret amongst European and US traders due to its very low fees, responsive support, excellent security, and ease of use. Mind that due to differences in regulation, the Japanese, European, and United States versions of the exchange offer somewhat different services at different rates. Despite that, it remains a newbie-friendly exchange and an excellent fiat gateway exchange regardless of your jurisdiction.
