I’ve just gone through the verification ordeal with CEX to be able to add fiat and trade BTC. It wasn’t until I got to the card verification section that I found that CEX take around 4.5% from your deposit just for the privilege of depositing cash ! Is this usual ?
I buy and sell BTC in the UK, and prices are generally better in USD or Euros, so I need to get in to those markets. Of course the bank charges are steep to transfer to foreign accounts, so I’ve been trying to find a prepaid debit card that will work. I tried the eCoin Visa debit card on CEX, but they (CEX) refused the transaction.
Does anybody know anything about CEX, like whether they accept prepaid cards at all ? I’ve found a cheaper prepaid card but it’s not cheap if I can’t use it
Also, CEX appears to be putting trading minimums up and increasing charges. Anybody got any bad news/stories about them ?
