BitPay and Banxa support the sale of over 175 cryptocurrencies across 20 chains, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Polygon (MATIC), and many more. These cryptocurrencies can be bought and managed within the BitPay Wallet app or sent directly to an alternative self-custody wallet from the BitPay website.
BitPay users can buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with their preferred local banking transfer method through the BitPay Wallet app or on the BitPay website. Both methods provide a convenient way to pay for crypto straight from your local bank account and manage your assets with self-custody.
