How N26 Crypto works

Are you crypto-curious, but don’t see N26 Crypto in your banking app just yet? Fear not—N26 Crypto is being rolled out gradually in Belgium, Ireland, and Portugal, so simply check back in a few weeks.

The market for crypto assets and the purchase of crypto assets constitute a high risk. Crypto assets are subject to high fluctuations in value, and there is no real underlying asset. Declines in value or a rapid, complete loss of the money spent are possible at any time. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

The values depicted above are fictional and for illustrative purposes only. The statements and illustrations do not constitute investment advice.

N26 Crypto is powered by Bitpanda Asset Management GmbH (HRB 121696), licensed by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority and located at Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 36, 60325 Frankfurt, Germany.

Manage and monitor both cash and crypto in one place—from your N26 app. No need to download a new app or make a new account to start trading crypto, just scroll down from your bank account to check it out.

Try N26 Crypto in your N26 app by following these steps:

  • Tap the Finances tab and scroll to Trading
  • Select Get started with crypto and browse the coins
  • If you’re ready, hit Buy and sign up in just a minute

Tada — enjoy being a digital currency owner!

Crypto may seem like a tough nut to crack—but, as always, we’ve got your back.

Why don’t I see N26 Crypto in my app?

We are in the process of rolling out N26 Crypto to eligible N26 customers in Belgium, Ireland, and Portugal. This rollout will be conducted in phases, so if you don’t see N26 Crypto in your app now, check back in several weeks. To access N26 Crypto, always make sure your N26 app is fully up to date. Please note that N26 Crypto will initially be available only to eligible customers to whom the terms and conditions of an N26 bank account in Belgium, Ireland, and Portugal apply. Customers who reside in one of these three countries but have N26 terms and conditions associated with another country will not have access to N26 Crypto yet.

N26 Crypto Fees 

Buying crypto doesn’t need to be costly. You only need €1 to get started and with N26 Crypto, you’ll pay 1.5% in fees on Bitcoin and 2.5% on other cryptocurrencies.

With a Metal account, you get a discount on trading fees — pay 1% for Bitcoin and 2% for other coins. Metal plans also come with a Mastercard made of stainless steel, comprehensive travel and tech insurance, and dedicated customer support via phone 7 days a week.

The N26 Metal crypto fee discounts only apply to trading amounts up to €5,000 (including fees on purchasing and excluding fees on selling crypto) per calendar month. Above this amount, regular fees apply: 1.5% on Bitcoin and 2.5% on all other coins.

Please note that fees are always rounded up to the nearest full cent—to a maximum of one cent—which may lead to a slight increase of the fee percentage shown in an order preview).

The fees and cryptocurrency prices shown on the N26 app for every transaction and including a possible spread are not determined by N26 but provided by Bitpanda. N26's liability is expressly excluded for any claim or damage arising from the formation of the prices of the assets offered by Bitpanda.

Don’t forget that, unlike many crypto trading apps, the prices in the N26 app are in Euro.
