Bitcoin exchange Wall of Coins is now accepting users in the United Kingdom

Florida based bitcoin exchange Wall of Coins which has in the past only serviced users in the United States, now has new banking relationships with Lloyds Bank and Santander Bank allowing them to service users in the United Kingdom.

Wall of Coins pairs up users on their decentralized peer-to-peer market to buy and sell bitcoins. All payments are currently made in U.S. Dollars (USD) and through cash bank deposits to fund the purchase.

In a tweet sent out by the exchange, they wrote:

Wall of Coins is now in the United Kingdom with Lloyds Bank and Santander. More to come!#Bitcoin accessible to everyone!

With this new development, users should be able to fund their accounts in Euro (EUR) in the near future as the new service gets rolled out. Wall of Coins is owned and operated by Genitrust. One of the features of the exchange is that they try to run a full transparency page, which includes an updated list of bitcoin deposit addresses for users to verify the authenticity of any deposit addresses supplied to you by Wall of Coins. They also keep 100% of stored funds in cold storage.

Update May 5, 2016: Wall of Coins also just announced that they also have secured banking partnerships in Mexico as well, with Banamex and BBVA Compass.
