To celebrate our recent integration with MoneyPolo, here at the Bitcoin Exchange, we thought we’d like to run a promotion.

Pre-requisite is to have a verified MoneyPolo account & already. You can do a basic verification to enable MoneyPolo on your account by verifying your details. You can deposit and withdraw in your local currency, but deposits and withdrawals will be transacted in EUR, using the MoneyPolo exchange rate.

[Service Notice] Updated Fees Structure & Verification Tiers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

So a little while back, we had made some changes to the fees structure, particularly the introduction of euro deposit fees. We had hoped these would be temporary, and we have good news for those of you using Euro SEPA deposits.

With 1.2 now live, and our shift to BTC/EUR instead of BTC/USD, our new verification tiers, and recently added Moneypolo integrations, we have been able to update our fees structure. These are now available here. This impacts both our trading and withdrawal/deposit fees

Maker/Taker Model
CoinMate were the first EUR Bitcoin market using the market maker and market taker trading model. We launched on July 20th, although Kraken followed shortly after. Orders that supply liquidity to the market (“maker”) get a more favorable fee than orders that take liquidity from the market (“taker”). Our maker fee is a low 0.05%, and taker fee is 0.35%

New verification tiers
If you visit your verification page, you will be able to verify your account to different levels. Bitcoin-only trading requires just a verified email address. Trading with a supported OKPay or Moneypolo account require some information, while use of bank transfers requires identify documentation. Higher volume traders need to submit a signed declaration to high-volume limits.
Verification level Requirements Sum of Deposit + Withdrawals Exchange Operations allowed
Registered Registration 100 BTC / Month
20 BTC / Day
Only virtual currency Depo & Withdrawals
Basic Full Name

CoinMate v1.2 replaces USD with EUR Bitcoin Trading

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Dear clients,

After 6 months of hard work, we are ready to announce a new version 1.2 of the bitcoin trading platform replacing the current v1.1 beta.

The new version will introduce the following:

  • Quick Buy and Sell, a new function that will let you buy or sell Bitcoin with one click
  • Maker / Taker fees (the lower maker fee 0.05% is charged when supplying liquidity into the order book and taker fee 0.35% is charged when taking existing offers from the order book) This will replace the current 0.2% flat fee
  • New language versions of the portal in German, Czech and Polish
  • New header and menu for easier navigation
  • Overview of all CoinMate trades in the trading user interface
  • Help boxes providing basic information on the various functionalities
  • New verification and KYC process introducing verification levels
  • Live Bitcoin price in the Browser title
  • Top 10 traders will be rewarded with 0% maker fee and 0.1% taker fee schedule for 30 days each month
  • New verified sign-ups will no longer receive the 1USD sign-up bonus
  • New terms for our referral program. 50% commission of maker/taker fees from referred users for 6 months from date of registration
  • Creating and redeeming vouchers will have a flat fee of 0.35%
  • Improved BTC withdrawal process, and a flat 0.0001 bitcoin transaction fee. No fees for bitcoin deposits.

The most fundamental change will be transition of the entire portal system currency from USD to EUR. This means that all balances and all transaction history will be converted into Euros using exchange rate at the time of the new version deployment at 5pm GMT Sunday 19 July 2015 (using the spot exchange rate of Yahoo finance). We will retain all transaction history in USD before we make the switch. Clients who require their USD transaction history can request it via our support team.

If you withdraw your USD account balance or convert your USD account balance into Bitcoin before this date, your account balance will not be otherwise influenced. If you will have an USD balance at the time of the transition, it will be favourably converted into EUR using the spot rate. Trading will thereafter take place using EUR/BTC exchange rates. Bitcoin balances will remain the same as before the transition.

The EUR, CZK and PLN bank Deposit and Withdrawal methods will remain intact, OKPay deposits and withdrawals will be newly processed in Euro.

During the month of August we will also introduce new funding method Sofort (instant bank deposit supported in 13 EU countries) and new instant deposit and withdrawal method MoneyPolo (MoneyPolo allows cash deposits and cash withdrawals in 150 countries of the world and offers a prepaid card) .

Please note that trading portal will be unavailable from 5pm GMT until midnight Sunday 19 July 2015 during the deployment of the new version.

We hope you will enjoy new CoinMate providing even smoother trading experience and favourable rates for speculative trading. In case you have any questions, please contact our Support.

CoinMate Survey Prizes Drawn – Did you win?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

So ahead of the slightly delayed (due to real life family holidays for the team) 1.2, which is in the final stages of testing. If you’re following us on Twitter @CoinMateBT we’ve put out some previews here and here. But in June, we ran a survey of traders using that definitely will address some of the issues, wants and needs people have, as well as some great new ways such as “Sofort” to deposit funds into your bitcoin exchange account quickly from European bank accounts.

Part of this survey was $50 in vouchers, so this blog post outlines the winners. So after filtering out the bot responses, we had our list of eligible trader id’s. We stuck these into notepad, and put them into this handy tool, drawing our third prize winner, so CoinMate_3334 will be getting $10. We took that out of the list, and repeated the process, drawing Maple, who wins $15 and repeated the process a third time, which drew Goldux who gets $25.

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who responded, and you’ve given us a lot of honest feedback, which our development and support team will be factoring into the future of CoinMate.
