Coinbase UK Regains Access to UK Fasters Payments Scheme (FPS)
A couple of months back, there was an announcement that the partnership between Coinbase and Barclays has ended. According to the announcement, the bank will stop providing financial services for Coinbase. Due to the volatile and nascent nature of the digital currency market, trading platforms usually have difficulties in striking deals with banking institutions.
Coinbase secured a deal with Barclays back in March last year. The news got the entire digital currency space excited at the time. After a year of collaboration, news had it that the bank developed cold feet and decided to back out of the partnership for reasons best known to it. The trading platform quickly found a replacement in ClearBank. However, the backing out of Barclays had a small negative impact on the business of the trading platform.
This is because Coinbase had access to the United Kingdom Faster Payments Scheme (FPS) through Barclays. The FPS supported instant withdrawals and deposits of GBP. However, with the helped of ClearBank, Coinbase has regained access to FPS.
