Coinbase Increases Services in Canada

On Monday, August 14, Coinbase announced that it was entering the Canadian market formally in a blog post, emphasizing the integration of Interac payment rails for Canadian users.

The cryptocurrency exchange claims that users will be able to deposit and withdraw money on the platform in Canadian dollars (CAD) with ease thanks to the recently implemented Interac payment rails.

The most often requested feature by Canadian consumers, according to Coinbase, is the Interac payment rail integration made possible by a collaboration with Peoples Trust Company, a preeminent provider of financial services in Canada.

The cryptocurrency exchange also mentioned that Canadian consumers can access its subscription-based service Coinbase One with a 30-day free trial in addition to the new payment rails. In addition to other things, the service provides zero-fee trading, increased staking incentives, and priority customer service support.

Despite restrictions on leverage trading and stablecoin support, Coinbase has identified Canada as its next “Go Deep Market.” The country has instead been praised by the crypto exchange for having “a robust regulatory framework” and high levels of “crypto awareness.”

In light of growing regulatory uncertainties in the U.S., Coinbase’s Canadian launch is the exchange’s most recent endeavor in its international development strategy.

The International Expansion of Coinbase

With initiatives in Europe and the introduction of an international derivatives exchange incorporated in Bermuda in 2023, Coinbase sought to increase its global presence.

The exchange insists that its most recent efforts at overseas development are part of its overall strategy, but they also come at a time of increasing legal uncertainty in the US that has led to a lawsuit from the SEC and fueled rumors of a U.S. crypto exodus.
