Barclays backs U.K. launch of bitcoin payments app

Barclays PLC has become the first U.K. bank to partner with a cryptocurrency company, teaming up with Goldman Sachs-backed social payments app Circle, which uses bitcoin to transfer money.

The Boston-based startup launched in the U.K. on Wednesday after being granted an e-money license from the Financial Conduct Authority. The license allows it to transfer money electronically, exchange currencies and make international payments. It’s the first time a digital currency company has been granted such a license from the U.K. financial watchdog.
