Coinbase partners with ClearBank for real time payments

US cryptocurrency exchange coinbase has found a new partner for faster payments in Britain.

In Brief:

  • Coinbase can now provide real time payments for customers in Britain through Clearbank.

  • It lost the ability to do so when its partnership with Barclays Plc ended in July.

  • ClearBank is a direct participant of the UK’s faster payments system.

What does this mean?

Cryptocurrency firms have a hard time making deals with traditional banks and lenders, due in part to the compliance issues they bring about. Thanks to the deal with ClearBank, Coinbase customers – both individuals and companies – will be able to make deposits and withdrawals in less than a minute.
