New Zealand

New Zealand leads the world in ease of starting and doing business, and is also in the top ten countries in terms of tax loyalty. Despite the fact that cryptocurrency is not an official means of payment in the country, there are no restrictions on transactions, which is why interaction is considered simple and convenient, and thanks to Ethereum, the digital economy has risen to a qualitatively new level.

The purchase of cryptocurrency is possible with the help of special exchange services, which include Itez, the official service from the Estonian regulator, which guarantees full protection against fraud, data confidentiality and fast payment processing. On our service you can buy ethereum for the New Zealand dollar (NZD) and other currencies.

The New Zealand banking system is modern and highly developed. The country has a dual financial system: the main cryptocurrency regulators in the country are the Financial Market Authority (FMA), which controls financial products, and the Reserve Bank (RBNZ), which oversees financial institutions. Selected major financial institutions include: ANZ New Zealand, ASB, Bank of New Zealand and Westpac NZ.

Bank cards

New Zealand accepts most major credit and debit cards, including Visa, MasterCard and American Express. There is also an EFTPOS payment system. It is a card on which clients can store money and use it throughout the country. The peculiarity of EFTPOS is that it cannot be used to make online payments, so the user needs to hold both types of cards.

How to store Ethereum

It is most convenient to store cryptocurrency in electronic wallets, applications that allow you to work with an Ethereum account: read the balance, make transactions and connect to other applications. Most wallets also allow to manage multiple Ethereum accounts from a single app. You can read more about the e-wallets here: https://ethereum.org/en/wallets/
