A digital asset broker, Deskoin sets itself apart from other cryptocurrency buying / selling platforms by offering prices that are among the most competitive in Europe. Deskoin derives this capability from an aggregation system, which will search over 10 platforms for the best prices at which cryptocurrencies can be bought or sold at any given time.

This particularity allows Deskoin to position itself as a platform of choice for companies wishing to interact with cryptocurrencies. Indeed, all of the platform’s offers are suitable for companies wishing to invest part of their cash in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
In parallel with obtaining its registration as a PSAN, Deskoin has deployed version 2.0 of its platform. In order to become more intuitive and more accessible to those new to the cryptocurrency world, Deskoin has received a complete graphic overhaul.
This new version also marks the starting point for the development of many features, such as cryptocurrency custody or payment by credit card in the coming weeks.
Already supporting nearly 50 on-demand cryptocurrencies at the time of writing, the platform plans to add multiple assets in the near future.
“Deskoin doesn’t want to stop there and plans to release an innovative investment product linked to the life insurance model in addition to a mobile app,” adds the Deskoin team.
A highly coveted investment method, Deskoin also offers its users programmed investment (or DCA), allowing periodic purchases of cryptocurrencies in fixed amounts.
By obtaining PSAN status, Deskoin is now accelerating the implementation of its main objective: to make cryptocurrencies accessible and understandable to the masses.
