John explains: “The branch manager sat down and explained that the bank had reviewed the transactions coming in and out of my account and decided that it no longer wanted to do business with “these type of people”. I immediately requested full withdrawal of my not insignificant balance to which he replied that he would need to seek approval for that to happen.”

Bitcoin isn't a bubble. It's the pin!

This is not cool, they shouldn't be doing this to their customers. This shows that they are truly scared of cryptocurrency, otherwise they would be relatively neutral on the matter. This isn't the first time I've heard of this, I did hear some stories of this happening to some Chase bank customers back towards the end of 2017.
