In a press release, the European Bitcoin exchange CoinMate announces that the company has entered into a new partnership with payment provider MoneyPolo wherein the two companies have agreed to enable users from over 100 countries to exchange cash for Bitcoin and back. This is expected to take CoinMate to the next league of the companies with wide user base.
The company believes that once the two companies are able to provide the services to the users who wish to buy Bitcoin with cash, a lot of their issues will be solved to great extent. However, the company informs that the customers need to open a MoneyPolo account as well as a CoinMate account for the purpose.
Opening the account with the two companies, customers can fund their MoneyPolo account with cash at one of the company’s partners with brick-and-mortar locations in over 100 countries. The company informs that once the MoneyPolo account is funded, the money can be transferred to CoinMate for free, where it can be used to buy Bitcoin.

Talking about the entire development, CEO of CoinMate parent company Confirmo, Roman Valihrach, said that the partnership will provide ample opportunities for the Bitcoin users to sell and buy Bitcoin.
