How to Buy Bitcoin in Christchurch

Anyone considering buying Bitcoin in New Zealand has two main options. Prospective traders can sign up at international exchanges like Coinbase. Alternatively, Kiwis can buy Bitcoin at a homegrown Bitcoin exchange like Easy Crypto.

To understand which option is right for you, it is important to consider a few key facts.

  • Kiwis always pay more for Bitcoin on international exchanges like Coinbase. This is thanks to NZD to USD exchange rates.
  • It can take far longer to buy Bitcoin on international exchanges like Coinbase, than on local exchanges. This is thanks to complex ID verification requirements on international exchanges.
  • International exchanges aren’t answerable to New Zealand financial regulators when things go wrong.

In every case, it is, therefore, safer, easier, and cheaper, to buy Bitcoin right here in New Zealand. The easiest way to do so, being via Easy Crypto.

Easy Crypto is NewZealand’s foremost locally owned, operated, and regulated Bitcoin exchange. This provides Kiwi cryptocurrency investors with several key benefits.

  • Easy Crypto exchange accounts can be verified in under 2-minutes with a valid NZ issue driving license.
  • No NZD to USD exchange rates apply when buying Bitcoin. Instead, it is possible to buy digital assets directly with New Zealand Dollars via direct bank transfer and POLi Instant Pay.
  • It is possible to exchange Bitcoin to NZD 24/7 without paying international exchange rates or waiting days for transactions to clear.

Being locally owned and operated also means that in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, support is available. This is very different from international exchanges, where accounts can be regularly frozen without warning.
