• CoinBase rejected my UK account because I'm not resident in the UK. I've now tried to register with Kraken whose site claims they don't care as long as you're not in Iran, Nork, Japan or a few other places. However, Kraken's email loop on sign up isn't working for me and I really pretty much know it must be their problem because I run my own mail server and I can see there is nothing hitting the back end! If it is so hard to buy bitcoin in one country and send to oneself in another I've got to say crypto is not proving itself to have much point in my life.
