We’re excited to announce the pound sterling is coming to Bitstamp next week!
All of our fiat and cryptocurrencies will get an additional GBP pair, with zero trading fees through 1 September 2020. This includes USD, EUR, BTC, ETH, XRP, LTC and BCH.
We’re adding GBP trading in the following stages:
1. Transfer-only mode: GBP deposits and withdrawals open on 1 June, but trading will not be enabled yet.
2. Post-only mode: Starting at 7 am UTC on 3 June, you will be able to place and cancel limit orders, but they will not be matched. Therefore, no orders will actually be completed during this stage.
3. Limit-only mode: At 9 AM UTC on 3 June, order matching will start and trades will be executed normally. However, only limit orders will be available.
4. Full trading: Once the order books gather sufficient liquidity, we will enable all order types and card purchases for the new trading pairs as well.
GBP trading pairs will be available worldwide, except in certain US states.
