BL3P is a digital asset exchange platform that offers support for trading Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin against Euros. Backed by Bitconic, they accept fiat deposits on SEPA transfers and through instant iDeal service, which is available only in the Netherlands. Founded in 2012, BL3P is the only exchange based in the Netherlands that holds Dutch bank accounts to process Euro transactions.

BL3P is intended for users in the Netherlands and Europe who want to buy or sell Bitcoin and Litecoin quickly and safely against the Euro. The platform has a clean design. Opening an account is simple but requires identity verification. Due to the two order types available, market & limit orders, trading Bitcoin is simple and can be limited by price. BL3P is harder to use for inexperienced users.
