It is understood that Lykke services are not available to the residents of US, Canada, Japan, Australia.


New Netcoins App for more Fiat to STEEM options

Canada based Netcoins has launched a new app that provides more fiat to STEEM exchange options.

> The Netcoins app allows for fiat to Steem purchases via wire transfer, in native CAD, USD and EUR currencies. There is also the option to purchase using your credit cards if you live in the US or Europe.

The fee is only 3%.

@crimsonclad has produced a video demonstrating the app.


Onwards and upwards for Drugwars
