Bitcoin

Bitcoin users have reported problems with buying and selling bitcoin using their bank accounts for some time, and based on a recent Merkle blog, the problem continues, notably in the United Kingdom. The blog doesn’t name any banks that are creating the problems.

Banks can close accounts with little notice, the blog noted, and moving the funds out of a closed account can be challenging.
The banks are reportedly taking these actions when the customer buys or sells bitcoin using their bank account. A transaction with a message field that includes the word “bitcoin” can alert the bank to take action.

Banks can also become alarmed when a customer adds a debit card linked to a Coinbase account to their bank account.

All banks are not taking these actions. The Merkle claimed that various smaller banks are less inclined to take such actions than larger banks.

One recent Reddit post noted a problem with Lloyds, a major U.K.-based bank. The customer noticed Lloyds blocked a bitcoin transactions when they started using their debit card on Coinbase. When the customer called Lloyd’s customer support and explained the situation, Lloyd’s unblocked the transaction but said previously-blocked transactions would not go through since they were buying digital assets that might cause issues with Coinbase.
