Coinbase Adds British Pound Exchange for UK Crypto Users

The Infinite Brief
Crypto exchange Coinbase is now offering deposits and withdrawals denominated in the British pound (GBP), the firm announced Wednesday.

The exchange’s U.K. division will now offer same-day deposits and withdrawals from the platform, allowing transfers to happen almost immediately.

In a statement, Coinbase U.K. chief executive Zeeshan Feroz wrote that this system will replace the previous method, which had customers convert cryptocurrencies into euros before converting a second time into pounds.

The roll out of this new system is ongoing. Several customers already have access to GBP wallets, and all U.K. customers will receive access over the next few weeks.
