At Blockchain we’re always looking for ways to make digital currency more accessible. It’s part of our commitment to creating an open, accessible, and fair financial future – and helping you, our users, Be Your Own Bank™.
Today, we’re excited to introduce Recurring Orders, a new feature that gives our European users greater purchasing power by allowing them to automatically buy bitcoin on a regular basis. Whether you’re just getting started or regularly purchase bitcoin, this feature will make it even easier to invest little by little in a better financial future.
Here’s how it works:
- Log into your Blockchain wallet
- Select ‘Buy’ powered by Coinify
- Enter the desired amount you’d like to purchase with your credit card
- Select ‘Make this a recurring order’
- Choose your frequency whether on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis
- Select the duration you’d like the recurring order to last (you can cancel anytime!)
- Then click ‘Buy Bitcoin’
Taking small, incremental steps can add up to big results over time. With recurring orders, you can find your comfort zone and watch your wallet accrue additional bitcoin – without having to worry about a large upfront cost.

We’re excited to announce that we have partnered with India’s most popular exchange, Unocoin, to give Blockchain users across India the ability to quickly and easily fund their Blockchain wallets.
Beginning today, we’ve integrated Unocoin’s exchange directly within the Blockchain wallet to give you greater purchasing power without having to compromise security or control.
For the first time ever, your Blockchain wallet can be funded in just a few clicks by linking your bank account, which is subject to bank transfer speed.
Millions of Indians have embraced digital assets as a reliable way to save and transfer money. Together with Unocoin we are committed to making digital currency simple and more accessible throughout India. Whether it’s high fees, untrustworthy service providers, or confusing identity verification procedures, it’s often been a slow and challenging process to get started with bitcoin. Today’s integration is an important step forward in eliminating the friction that many have experienced in buying bitcoin.
The Unocoin integration is available to web users, but we plan on expanding to our Android and iOS wallet users in the near future. Log-in or sign up at www.blockchain.com to get started today!
When we announced that iOS users in Europe could buy bitcoin, we promised that it wouldn’t be long before Android users would see the same features and functionalities.
Delivering on that promise, we’re happy to announce that Android users in Europe can now buy bitcoin from within their Blockchain wallets with the same Blockchain-Coinify integration available to web and iOS users.

Our team is excited to announce that iOS users in Europe are now able to buy bitcoin from within their Blockchain wallets using the same seamless and user friendly Blockchain-Coinify integration available to web users.
