London, UK, 26th February, 2024 — OANDA Global Corporation today announced the launch of OANDA Crypto, a true crypto-native platform for private investors and traders in the United Kingdom designed with security and responsiveness at its heart.

Crypto trading has never been more straightforward for UK-based traders, as they can now trade popular cryptocurrencies on a platform that is secure, simple to use, and backed up by OANDA's reputation as a global leader in online multi-asset trading services, currency data, and analytics.

OANDA Crypto is a trading name of OANDA Coinpass Limited, a firm registered with the UK Financial Conduct Authority that offers an intuitive trading experience in which clients can access easy, low-cost funding and withdrawal from UK bank accounts, trade cryptocurrency with market-leading liquidity, and rely on secure storage of all their crypto assets.

The platform currently supports trading in over 63 cryptocurrency pairs, including Bitcoin, Ether, and Ripple, with plans to add more tokens and features over the course of the year.

Lucian Lauerman, Head of Digital Assets, said, “With OANDA Crypto, we are staying true to our mission of making trading experiences smarter by bringing the reliability, security, and simplicity of our robust trading platforms into an easy-to-use app, making crypto attractive to UK traders and investors of all levels of experience.”

The move builds on OANDA's August 2023 acquisition of a majority interest in OANDA Coinpass Limited and aligns with OANDA’s plans to complement its existing strengths in CFD trading by providing UK clients with a fast and secure route to the digital economy.

The smart app for smart crypto traders

The OANDA Crypto trading app gives traders the tools they need to unlock the crypto market, including:

  • Trading a wide range of popular cryptocurrencies, including stablecoins
  • Access to advanced charts on desktop – over 100,000 public indicators, 110 smart drawing tools, and volume profile indicators powered by TradingView

OANDA Crypto is available on desktop or app to all eligible clients throughout the UK, so they can trade the cryptocurrencies of their choice 24/7, 365 days a year.
