Bitladon is a major player from Aalsmeer that was founded at the end of 2017 by Boyd Meuleman and Mitchel Zandwijken as a broker with an extensive portfolio of more than 163 crypto. This way, Bitladon is a one-stop-shop for your crypto! With their current portfolio they exceed the competition as Litebit, Anycoin Direct and Bitvavo. Coinmerce.io on the other hand is a good alternative. Besides the possibility to buy crypto with (€) euro via iDEAL, it is also possible to trade bitcoin and altcoins for other crypto. As a result, they excel the function as a broker and operate more as an exchange. These days Dutch banks give very low or no interest on your savings. Bitladon on the other hand offers 3% interest on so called ‘stable coins’.* Stable coins are crypto that are linked to fiat and have no impact on market value fluctuation. So you don’t have to be afraid that the market value will drop with 100%. The stable coins that they currently offer are Tether (USDT), TrueUSD (TUSD), Paxos Standard (PAX) and Dai (DAI).
*The interest does not come from Bitladon itself, but from the company that developed the (blockchain) project.
