What's the alternative though?
**** knows but im so ****** I might slam them into court for consequential losses.
I cant tell you how livid I am right now, after going through all their verification and ********, theyre happy to take my payment instantly, happy to take their fee, but refuse to release my bitcoins without a 72 hour delay.
Yeah it seems the best thing to do after buying from coinbase is to move your coins elsewhere as they are a nightmare. There were delays sending ETH yesterday as well. Something to do with degraded service.
Has anyone successfully sent Euro from coinbase back to Revolut?
First post - sounds legit!
Just lol... Sign me up!
Right guys.... so i have a coinbase account tried withdrawing some money today.... £25 to test out. I clicked sell then to gbp wallet after a £1.50 fee the money sits in my gbp wallet on coinbase. my only option from there is to withdraw.... to do this I need to add a bank account, again this needs to be activated my sending some euros from my bank tsb to them! there is a £10 fee for this... my question is ... is the money in my coinbase wallet stuck there now unless i withdraw it? Ta
Would be interested to know also. I have a blockchain and coinbase (and gdax by dint of coinbase) account with only a very small litter of btc and ltc. Getting money in is easy but how you get it out without incurring significant fees/conversations is the difficulty. I'm not looking to withdraw currently but there has to be an easier way to manage wallets/exchanges than this!
I have a bad feeling you still can't withdraw GBP to a bank account... May have to be euros.
Which I assume would mean buying something in gbp to then instantly sell in euro, to then transfer out?
Something very funny going on with coinbase at the moment... can't sell anything so I just transferred what little I have there off to another exchange.
^ Yeah essentially they burn you - I don't see any point in a GBP wallet if you can't withdraw from it. I've just tested the EUR wallet to Revolut with a few euros - I'll update if it works!
I'l be surprised if there isn't a class action against Coinbase at some point given some of their borderline shady practices.
So what's the consensus here. Always trade in Euros? If so; what's the standard affair here to keep costs down?
1.Deposit to Revolut.
2.Convert to Euro. * (Or simply topup from UK bank to Euro directly?)
3.Withdraw to an exchange (which one is best for simpletons like me that just want to dabble in btc and ltc as trying to get to grips with the abundance of cryptocoin makes my bat weep)? I currently have accounts with Blockchain, Coinbase (and GDAX).
5.Withdraw to Revolut.
6.Convert back to GBP.
7.Withdraw to bank.
EDIT - So I've come to the conclusion Coinbase is a pain. Looks like I can deposit Euros in but can only buy coin in GBP! Aaaaargh. Shoulda stayed in bed.
Just wanted to say thanks for this. It's helped me out massively
Hi, I’ve got my coins stuck in the EUR account. I’ve deposited some Euros via a SEPA transfer which is showing in my transactions. However, it still won’t let me withdraw - and says that I still need to verify the account by depositing into it. Anyone else had this problem?
Yup, ended up transferring off after several threatening emails today and them lifting the blocks on my account
Just got my small transfer in EUR from coinbase to Revolut. So that's 2 days basically. I would test the water with a small amount first then go for several tranches. Still would feel uneasy about sending large amounts in one go given their tendency to go offline.
I am having a right mare’ here can anyone help? It’s on Coinbase
I had £1k GBP in my account which I bought the equivalent value bitcoin around the first week of November.
I then sold half when it reached £9,500.00 and halved it again when it reached £14,300.00
This left me with about £1600 in GBP and 0.04 bitcoins left (portfolio value of around £2,300)
I then tried to transfer some money out and quickly came across the issue that you can only transfer out in euros. It also wouldn’t verify the IBAN and BIC for my Halifax account?
I thought well what I will do is buy fully in again at around £11,500 (when it dipped) and then sell again when it went up again a bit which it did so at £12k I sold all apart from 0.04 bitcoins but this time into euros..
This is where the problems started as now the sale transaction is stuck in limbo. It says I should have received the euros yesterday evening but they still haven’t showed up... is this because I haven’t verified my Euro wallet?
So it looks like the general consensus is to get a Revolut account?
My Halifax account never verified for some reason, Revolut was fine.
This is so annoying
So revolut are blocking transfers to Coinbase for some reason
I can’t get money into my euro wallet so it can receive the sale of bitcoins into euros
