More Crpyto Offerings In Canada - April 2022

in LeoFinance4 months ago

Hi there. I had a post back in September 2021 talking about cryptocurrency offerings in Canada. It is April 2022 and a lot has changed since then. I cover the updated crypto offerings from Wealthsimple Crypto, Newton and Netcoins. I do not cover the other Canadian platforms as I would not know much of them and I am not subscribed to their newsletters.

The Canadian crypto exchanges all require identity verification.

Even with these updates and additional coin offerings the Canadian crypto exchanges are not as big compared to Coinbase, Binance, Kucoin, FTX, OKX, Huobi,, Kraken and so on.
