One of the most famous cryptocurrency enthusiasts, Andreas Antonopoulos, decided to withdraw from the services of the FINTECH firm Intuit after it blocked his accounts.
In a series of messages on Twitter, Antonopoulos said that the company has blocked the ability to accept money from credit cards through its services, since it uses cryptocurrencies. Representatives of Intuit even asked Antonopoulos to remove all mentions of crypto assets from his site.
“The payment service Intuit just told me that I can’t use cryptocurrencies if I want to accept money from credit cards in my accounts. They asked me to remove all information about cryptocurrencies from my site. Instead, I decided to remove Intuit and their credit card services from my life,” the cryptocurrency enthusiast said.
Earlier, Andreas Antonopoulos said that in order to use bitcoin in the financial sector, it is necessary to develop scenarios for its practical application.
Banks and other financial companies often restrict companies and private clients using cryptocurrencies. So, in 2018, the Central Bank of India banned
banks and financial institutions provide services to companies working with cryptocurrencies. And today, a Danish court confirmed the legality of the actions of Nordea Bank, which banned its employees from using cryptocurrencies.
