How to Easily Buy Monacoin (MONA) with Giropay on bitFlyer

Wondering how to buy Monacoin? You’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together this guide to point you in the right direction. 

Monacoin was the first Japanese cryptocurrency and it’s still considered the country’s national cryptocurrency. It’s a hard fork of the Litecoin blockchain and is designed specifically to be used as digital cash. The cryptocurrency is named after Mona cat, a popular internet meme in its country of origin. This “cute” mascot and local nature give the coin a kind of cult status in Japan, where it’s one of the most popular cryptocurrencies. While it’s highly popular in Japan, it’s not featured on a lot of international exchanges because of its local nature. So if you’re interested in this Japanese specialty but live in Europe, you might be wondering where to buy Monacoin.

With bitFlyer, it’s easy: you can buy all of our cryptocurrencies, including Monacoin, by making a simple Giropay payment. We make other things easier too. You can easily keep up to date with Monacoin’s price using our price charts or compare how it’s trading to other cryptocurrencies. We offer a mobile app for trading on the go, and there are several payment methods available, for your convenience.
