While I have not purchased a lot of Bitcoin and other crypto over the past few years, I do find myself wanting to do some consistent dollar cost averaging every week. All my past purchases have been through Coinbase in the early days when you paid a small fee and could use your credit card. All of that has changed and for Canadians Coinbase is not the best option these days.

I have been looking for options recently and two relatively new services that I have discovered that are based in Canada are Shakepay & Newton. I have signed up for both and just recently purchased some Bitcoin through Newton. Both services have a web-based and iPhone/Android app. It was really easy to setup Newton and to transact. Setup for Shakepay was simple too and I plan to transact in the near future.

Fees for both were the best that I’ve seen and being able to use Interac e-transfer and Interac debit is great. I plan on using these two services over the next few months to do some weekly purchases. It’s great to have options and low fees to boot.
