Can I buy Crypto with National Bank of Canada?

Unfortunately the National Bank of Canada does not yet offer any services for their customers to buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies through their online banking platform. This also includes the National Bank of Canada branches, which do not offer Over the Counter desks for cryptocurrency trading.

The easiest way to invest in cryptocurrencies with a National Bank of Canada account is through a licensed and regulated digital currency exchange in Canada. The best for Canadian Dollar (CAD) deposits is Bitbuy, who are Canada's largest and most trusted crypto exchange.
