Lloyds Bans Buying Cryptos on Credit Cards

Lloyds Banking Group said it would ban its credit card customers from buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. “Across Lloyds Bank, Bank of Scotland, Halifax and MBNA, we do not accept credit card transactions involving the purchase of cryptocurrencies,” a company spokeswoman said. Britain’s biggest mortgage lender will ban its credit card customers from buying Bitcoin amid fears that they could run up huge losses, Reuters reported. The company was to block any attempts to buy Bitcoin with a credit card starting on Monday, but digital currencies could be purchased with debit cards, the Telegraph newspaper said. Credit card customers of the bank will be blocked from buying Bitcoin online through a blacklist that will flag sellers, according to the Telegraph. The company fears that credit card owners will buy Bitcoin hoping to make a profit when its value goes up, but will be laden with debt if its price falls, the paper reported. Digital currencies plunged on Friday, with Bitcoin at one point sliding below $8,000 and headed for its biggest weekly loss since December 2013, amid worries about a global regulatory clampdown.
