I’ve just decided to use this as a place to document the process of getting up and running to be able to use Crypto to send money from my own bank account in the UK to my own bank account in Israel. Both accounts are held in full compliance with all local laws and regulations. I set up my UK CoinBase account at 20:33 17th Dec. It's now 20th Dec and I'm still waiting for them to verify the £2 transfer I made at that time. 18th, 19th were working days in the UK, perhaps today. At the Israeli side the link to my Israeli bank was confirmed on 18th Dec. Next day. And I didn't have to make a transfer.
