Ulster Bank ROI sent me a letter stating that I have sixty days to find myself another bank. They have closed my account, as well as my wife’s. I’m not going to open a new Irish bank account. I’m going to attempt to live with Bitcoin and cash exchanges only from now on.

The bank didn’t state a reason for my account being closed. I suspect it is because my only source of income seems to be monthly transfers from certain Slovenian company called Bitstamp.

They can just close your account like that without any explanation?

The TOS states that they can do that with sixty days notice, and that’s what they did.

It is important to setup a network of cash exchanges and improve liquidity locally. I am already talking to other exchangers locally to get that done. They will not be able to stop us bitcoiners.

That's horrible. I can't help to wonder about how many Bitcoins you have and your history With the coin. I can't believe the Bitcoin opportunity slip away. Life could have been so different

Well at least they give u 60 days and not just freeze your bank with all the money in it..

Banks are useless. I don't get how a closed bank account is a problem in any way.

No signature ad here, because their conditions have become annoying.

This would be great but local exchanges still need banks, also it's hard to gain trust on the market. Bitcoin attracts scammers.

This is happening everywhere. Bank accounts linked with Bitcoin transactions are frequently being closed, and in some cases frozen.

No. We don't need them. There will be no need for 3rd party people if Bitcoin goes mainstream.

I would take that as a huge compliment. Rather akin to Jamie Dimon's "bitcoin is a terrible store of value" comment. Congratulations for having pissed off bankers so much that they want nothing more to do with you.
