Cash out via e-transfer

On the send page, you can now send funds to your bank account via Interac e-Transfer for free. Convert your BTC to CAD, then tap on the Interac e-Transfer contact and you’re set!

It’s super simple and you should receive the Interac e-transfer email within a few hours.

Scan Bitcoin QR codes

From the send page, you can now scan Bitcoin QR codes.

We’ll pull the receiving address, amount, and message and auto-fill the send page (message will be mapped to the note).

More bitcoin transaction details

For purchases and sales of bitcoin, we’ve added the effective exchange rate as well as the equivalence in CAD to the transaction detail popup.

Bitcoin cash outs will now have the blockchain ID visible and a link to view the transaction on the blockchain.
