German online bank N26 has announced an expansion of its list of cryptocurrency-trading countries.
Founded as a fintech start-up in 2013, N26 is a mobile bank with a full German license.
Primarily offering crypto trading for customers in Austria, the Berlin-based bank said it would now provide services for those in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Portugal and Ireland.
Previous concerns voiced by regulators regarding anti-money laundering controls and compliance issues were bought to light by several German media outlets. It was reportedly possible to open an N26 account with fake identity documentation.
Such allegations bought N26 to the attention of the German financial regulatory authority, BaFin, who then demanded the bank take action to prevent money laundering and terrorism financing.
N26 said it has since made improvements and is looking to roll out its expanded trading gradually over the next few weeks.
