Customers use Faster Payments to process payments between exchanges and banks to execute crypto-fiat transactions. The company did not immediately provide the Financial Times with a comment on the matter. has contacted both parties with a request for clarification.

Twitter users, however, also said they had issues with bank card transactions.

The same outlet pointed out that Binance uses “an FCA-regulated company called Clear Junction“for access to the Faster Payments platform. The CEO of Clear Junction, Dima Kats, “declined to comment on whether Binance has lost access to Faster Payments,” the outlet noted, but “said the company was paying close attention to the actions of regulators.”

On Twitter, angry customers demanded an explanation. One of them has qualified the lack of up-to-date information to customers of “sleazy”, while another has suggested that “UK banks” are currently preventing “debit card payments to Binance.”
