Can I purchase crypto directly on Scotiabank Online?

If you are a customer of Scotiabank in Canada, you unfortunately cannot buy Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies directly through your Scotiabank online banking login.

Although Scotiabank is now friendly towards their bank account holders buying Bitcoin with cryptocurrency exchanges in Canada, they do not yet offer direct support through the Scotiabank online platform.

Can I use my Scotiabank account on crypto exchanges?

Yes. If you are a client of Scotiabank, you can sign up to a trusted cryptocurrency trading platform in Canada and deposit Canadian Dollars (CAD) via your bank account.

For Canadian investors, we recommend Bitbuy as the best way to buy crypto via a Scotiabank account. They offer instant and low fee deposits via Interac e-Transfer, as well as low trading fees once you have deposited Canadian Dollars into the account.
