JPMorgan's British retail bank Chase will ban crypto transactions made by customers from Oct. 16 due to an increase in fraud and scams, the company said on Tuesday.
"We've seen an increase in the number of crypto scams targeting UK consumers, so we have taken the decision to prevent the purchase of crypto assets on a Chase debit card or by transferring money to a crypto site from a Chase account," a spokesperson for the bank said.
"Scams" are the excuse banks will increasingly use to prevent you from accessing the only truly sovereign money in the world (Bitcoin) yourself.
Luckily, you are on this email list and have access to me. I spend every day ensuring I am able to acquire meaningful amounts of Bitcoin safely and swiftly for all our clients.
