[UPDATED] No more 3-day hold for Bitcoins bought from E-Coin

May 14, 2016 5:51 am Published by

We are happy to inform you that we have been successful in lifting the 3-working-day hold for all bitcoins bought through the E-Coin platform. Now you can transfer bitcoins from your wallet without delay!

This hold was a temporary security measure and was applicable to all bitcoins bought from E-Coin (but did not affect bitcoins bought/transferred from other platforms).

As a side effect, we are no longer accepting Sofort Uberweisung, Poli and Neosurf as Alternative Payment Method to load your E-Coin cards. Please see the updated card top-up methods in this blog post.

You will still be able to top up your account via bitcoins, bank transfers, PayPal* and APMs* such as Mistercash, Alipay, eKonto, Banklink, euTeller, GiroPay, Abaqoos, iDeal, P24, Qiwi, Sporopay and more.

*Selected countries

We will keep on improving our services. Thank you for using E-Coin/Wirex!
