Can I buy Crypto and Bitcoin with AMP Bank?

You can however connect your bank account to a cryptocurrency exchange and deposit AUD directly from your account to their platform. We recommend using a centralised cryptocurrency exchange as they are regulated and properly licensed to buy/sell cryptocurrencies in Australia.
