So, June had to let us recover for a while. Not only the temperatures outside were going sky high and breaking records here in the south of the Netherlands, also the king of crypto Bitcoin came back in the € 10k area. And after that, it even hit the (temporary?) 2019 record of € 12,108.-. on the 26th of June. But what caused the price increase? Tether again? Institutions? Upcoming halving? Facebook’s Libra? Here some speculations and analysis; Misss Bitcoin (in Dutch), CNBC, Hackernoon.
Other hot news is Facebook’s stablecoin Libra. “Facebook said that 27 partners had signed on for its Libra cryptocurrency project to run nodes. But some of those partners maybe less enthusiastic than others”. Since the announcement of the whitepaper, American politics are getting skeptical as well. But why? Simple explained; cryptocurrencies aren’t regulated, yet – if you can call Libra a cryptocurrency. As long as there are no regulations, Facebook can create their own digital economy where Libra will flow through the biggest social networks with more than billions of users, instead of fiat. It will become one of the biggest bank in the U.S. and therfore obtain more power and control. Sounds a bit scary if you ask us, or is it positive, because a crypto will replace the fiat currency in the economy of Zuckerburg’s social networks?
Questions remains; is Facebook going to continue their operation Libra or going to stop and accept defeat?
It is nice to go outside and play some augmented reality games, Pokemon GO or Harry Potter’s Wizards Unite? Or you could grab some cryptocurrencies while enjoying the sun and the environment. The augmented reality app Aircoins has listed DASH to be collected by you crypto hunters. Unfortunately we haven’t found one yet, but were motivated to find as much as possible.
We have started expanding the information on the broker pages and have begun with Anycoin Direct and Coinmerce. Bitvavo is next to be updated. On the broker pages you are now able to find more info about the broker, contact details and social network links to really get a full understanding what the broker represents and stands for.

As of writing the total amount of unique and comparable crypto, per the largest brokers and exchanges, are as following in compare to previous month:
We started June with 151 crypto and ended with an additional 4, resulting in 155 different crypto on our unique one page comparison overview.
And now it is that time of the month again. The announcement of CoinCompare’s best broker deal of June. Here are the winners:
#3: Bitladon! ended last month with 57 entries and a share of 18.87% in total. It remains to be one of the top brokers with having one of the largest portfolio’s in the Netherlands. Unfortunately June wasn’t a good month for Bitladon, as we have noted a decrease of 8 entries less then in May. The 49 entries give a 15.80% over all snapshots of the total entries. Due to the loss they have to give up their number three spot to the competition.
#2: Bitvavo! had only 45 entries last month with a 14.90% share. That ain’t much, but we can rest assure that the company is working hard on the road to become one of best brokers and exchanges. The listings are paying off as Bitvavo has jumped from the third place to the second, with an incredible increase of 14.45%. With 91 entries and a 29.35% share they will definitely dominate the second place for a while. Our sincere congratulations Bitvavo, keep up the good work!
#1: Coinmerce! It’s hard to beat the endgame boss! And there is a reason for that as they are adding more value to their quote: “#cryptocurrencyforeveryone“. In June they have listed 11 new crypto to their portfolio ensuring a wide variety of crypto. Also, central Europe isn’t enough for the brothers Smits van Oyen as they set foot in Sweden by adding, the in Stockholm based fintech Zimpler, as a payment method for its Scandinavian customers.
Last month Coinmerce had 145 entries with almost a 50% share of having the best deals. For June they have to do it with a 37.09% share based on 115 entries as Bitvavo is taking some for the win. A decrease of 10.92%, but nothing to worry as they are still the number 1 for having the best deals on CoinCompare. Congratulations guys, the world is at your feet!
The best deal broker of the month is determined with the average of cumulating buy and sell prices of all the best deals that are shown on our homepage. Logically, the larger the variety of crypto offered, the most chance of becoming the winner. In the end it is still the price that matters as it has to be comparable. Discounts in Tiers and VIP levels are not included in the calculation. As deals change several times a day, due to the volatility of prices, the broker with the best deal can therefore change as well. Due to that fluctuation we take two snapshots per day to the determine the broker for that day with the most entries.
