Ethereum and Ripple have arrived at BitPrime

As of 9am Monday 12th June, 2017 Ethereum (ETH) and Ripple (XRP) will be available for purchase directly with New Zealand Dollars, on BitPrime. This decision has been driven mainly by requests from you, our valued customers. You spoke, so we listened. This is the first time that cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin have been available in NZ. You can place your order for Ether here, and Ripple here. Please bare with us over the coming days as we expect the demand. contact us if we are unable to process your order, and we will contact you as soon as it becomes available again. We expect to be sourcing a majority of ETH and XRP internationally but if you would like to sell to us, get in touch for a prompt quote.

New Website Coming Soon....

Due to the high-level of demand for these coins we brought forward our planned launch date by approximately 4 weeks. We had planned to launch ETH and XRP as part of our new website that is currently under development. But you couldn't wait! Our new site will have a much cleaner and more automated buy/sell process. so watch this space. We would appreciate your input on the design of our new so let us know if you have any requests.

Changes to Bitcoin orders

As part of the recent changes we have made the decision to move all Bitcoin order processing in-house, away from our escrow partner LocalBitcoins. We will still have a presence on LocalBitcoins and you will still be able to buy and sell Bitcoin via LBC. Just let us know if that's your preference.

Existing Customers

A note to all of our existing customers. You will now need to create a  new username and password on BitPrime even if you have traded with us in the past. Once you've done this, please email hello@bitprime.co.nz with your name and mobile number so we can attach your "verified" status to your new account. There is no need to verify for a second time.
