UK bitcoin exchange Coinfloor announced today, that with their recent sale of CoinfloorEX, the company will now be re-focusing on its core GBP and EUR bitcoin exchange offering and customer base. To start this off, Coinfloor has brought back UK Faster Payments.
Faster Payments are a GBP only deposit and withdrawal method that is fast and inexpensive when transferred from UK banks. With Faster Payments, only a standard 6 digit sort code and an 8 digit account number (along with a user’s Coinfloor assigned deposit reference code) are needed to effect a GBP deposit transfer.
Fee-free UK Faster Payments until end of February
To commemorate the launch of UK Faster Payments Coinfloor will not be charging fees on any UK GBP Faster Payments deposits or withdrawals for the rest of January and all of February.
Lower GBP withdrawal fees and reduced fiat deposits and withdrawal minimums effective from 1st March 2019
The lower cost of processing UK GBP Faster Payments allows Coinfloor to charge £2.50 for deposits and £5 for withdrawals using this mechanism. The exchange says it will also reduce withdrawals made via International Wire Transfer, BACS or CHAPS to £30, down from £60.
Furthermore, along with this reintroduction of UK Faster Payments, Coinfloor has reduced the minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts. The deposit minimum will be £/$/€1000, down from £/$/€5000. Finally, our withdrawal minimum will be £/$/€500, down from £/$/€2000.
Note, the UK Faster Payment minimums are in effect as of now while all other minimums changes take effect from March 1st, 2019.
