Opening an account with CurrencyFair requires that you provide full verifiable ID.
... there's the rub. You got Big Brother's money and then you got bitcoin. .... BB's money costs too much.
CurrencyFair is a perfectly legit method of converting and moving cash between any major currencies/countries, so what’s the problem assuming the cash is not from illegal sources?
You've got nothing to fear, if you've got nothing to hide ..... ?
The problem is, it's a sucky statist attitude .... no ID, no ticky, we may as well live in communist China, Soviet Socialist Russia or Nazi Germany.
