Binary Options broker HighLow Markets has started accepting Bitcoin deposits from clients. We are frequently asked which binary options brokers accept bitcoin payments (and offer binary trading in bitcoin!) and expect this will be popular with many traders.
We had a brief look at the Bitcoin payments integration.
Bitcoin Trading Platform Integration
As with the other payment methods, the Bitcoin deposit function is nicely integrated into the platform just above the charts and trade panel. This gives you the ability to quickly fund your account as you are trading.
Bitcoin payments are also seamlessly integrated into the mobile app.
Funding Your Binary Options Account With Bitcoin
After you select your deposit amount in your base currency a BitPay window will pop up. You have the option of scanning the QR code with your respective bitcoin wallet, tapping “open in wallet” if you are on your device or entering the code manually.
You are given the conversion rate to your base currency (in this example BTC/AUD). Payment is instantaneous and you should see the funds in your account immediately.
Despite this process being fast and simple, we do note that bitcoin payments are only one way and you can only deposit into your account. Withdrawals will have to be via credit card, Neteller or bank account.
