According to the announcement, which was written by Coinbase UK CEO Zeeshan Feroz, Coinbase, Coinbase Pro and Coinbase Prime users can now take advantage of same-day deposits and withdrawals from Coinbase to British bank accounts.
Faster payments will benefit all UK customers, enabling almost immediate transfers. This is essential for Coinbase Pro and Coinbase Prime customers in particular who will now be able to transfer funds quickly.
Prior to the GBP support, the process of funding and withdrawing from a Coinbase account took days, as users were forced to convert their digital currencies into euros and then into pound sterling via international bank transfer.
This news comes just days after Coinbase announced the addition of a new Chief Compliance Officer, as part of an effort to improve trust and compliance with regulators both in and outside of the United States. Additionally, Coinbase recently revealed a new feature that allows European customers to cash out their cryptocurrency in the form of digital gift cards.
