Fidor Bank AG provides liability umbrella for bitcoin trading on
First direct banking cooperation in the European bitcoin sector
Fidor banking accounts planned for bitcoin.de customers
HERFORD, Germany, July 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Munich-based Fidor Bank AG
enters large-scale partnership with the bitcoin marketplace
"bitcoin.de". The publicly-traded online bank [WKN: A0MKYF / ISIN:
DE000A0MKYF1] will provide a so-called liability umbrella to Bitcoin
Deutschland GmbH, the operator of the bitcoin.de marketplace, thereby
bringing bitcoin trading in Europe to a new level.
As from the start of the cooperation, which will be activated upon the
registration with the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority,
Bitcoin Deutschland GmbH will become Fidor Bank AG's so-called "tied
agent" to conduct the bitcoin trading for Fidor Bank AG on bitcoin.de.
Bitcoin.de will thus be the first European bitcoin trading platform with
a direct banking cooperation and is following the financial market
regulations, e.g. the anti-money laundering legislation.
"With Fidor Bank AG as our Partner, the digital bitcoin currency, which
was initially smiled at as internet play money, is increasingly turning
into a serious alternative currency after only 4 years ", says Oliver Flaskämper, managing director of Bitcoin Deutschland
