Coinbase, a Bitcoin and Ether exchange with retail and institutional platforms, announced its clients in Singapore and Canada can now instantly buy both cryptocurrencies with their debit and credit cards.

The option is available through the “Trade” section of Coinbase’s website. It is also available through the Android and iOS applications of the exchange.

Currently clients in the two countries can only buy Bitcoin and Ether, much like those in Australia, where Coinbase launched its services earlier this week. The company pledges to add the “Sell” option soon.

It appears that Coinbase is actively seeking expansion both in terms of geography and in terms of portfolio. In May it rebranded its professional trading platform GDAX and simultaneously launched trading in Ether on it. Earlier this month Coinbase started offering Ether to its retail clients as well. 

In June the exchange introduced PayPal and credit cards to the funding options for its US clients.

Coinbase was established in 2012 in San Francisco and is believed to be the largest Bictoin-focused company in terms of investment. According to the CurnchBase website, since its establishing in 2012, Coinbase has attracted investments totaling $106.71 million in four rounds.  It operates exchanges between Bitcoin and fiat currencies in now 33 countries, and Bitcoin transactions and storage in 190 countries worldwide.
