Bitcoin.de removes trading fees for Greece citizens

Announcements | July 17, 2015 By:

German Bitcoin Marketplace Bitcoin.de announced it is waiving its trading fees for citizens of Greece.

“As a symbol of solidarity with our partners from southern Europe, we are making an offer to support Greek citizens who have turned to Bitcoin during the events of the past few weeks,” said Bitcoin.de.

The company added, Bitcoin has never been more needed than today and, as Europe’s largest exchange, Bitcoin.de wants to help to spread the message about cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin.de’s decision has been taken in the wake of Greece’s debt crisis, an event that has propagated Bitcoin as the one true savior that offers people a way to dispose off their cash assets in return for a trustable near-term investment.
