3 Shades of Grey


Our previous blog we asked you to vote for which coin you would like to see expresscoin support next. We were pleasantly surprised and happy to see so many votes! We listened to you, and have been hard at work adding altcoins of your choice into our platform.

Due to popular demand, we’re finally happy to announce that we’re adding three more altcoins to our growing list of digital currency.  Today, you can buy Litecoin, Blackcoin, and Darkcoin directly from expresscoin! This adds to our family of digital currencies including Bitcoin and Dogecoin.

Here at expresscoin, we believe access to Bitcoin and digital currency should be easy and frictionless, and defined by consumer choice.  We want to make it accessible, and let the market determine it’s place in the digital currency ecosystem.  We look forward to your business, and if you have any questions, send us an email or hello at
