There's got to be a simpler way to purchase BTC without a 3-5 day bank transfer I need them now lol jk but seriously it is rather hard and having to wait around for money to move cant be doing the BTC currency much good?
I moved some GBP to Britcoin
via regular UK online banking just after midnight this morning. About an hour ago the funds reached my Britcoin account and I bought bitcoins with them. It did once take several days but that was when there was a huge software change; usually it is well within 24 hours.
