For alternative options, check out my list of the best places to buy Bitcoin (BTC) in the UK.

What do I do if I already have a Coinfloor account?

If you already have a Coinfloor account, you have two options:

  • Transfer your account over to CoinCorner (including balances and account details).
  • Withdraw your balances and close your account.

If you do transfer your account over to CoinCorner, it doesn’t seem like you’ll need to go through the faff of verifying your identity again.

If you decide to withdraw your balances and close your account:

  • You’ll be charged 0.0005 BTC to withdraw Bitcoin (BTC).
  • You cannot withdraw any GBP if your balance is below £30.

If you don’t take any action before the 1st November 2021, then you’ll automatically be migrated over to CoinCorner. 

You can make your choice by logging into your Coinfloor account on its website. When I went through this process, this is what I saw (click to expand):

You’ll receive a few emails with your transaction history after you’ve closed your account or transferred it over to CoinCorner.

Coinfloor is a UK-based crypto exchange that allows you easily buy Bitcoin (BTC) with GBP using its mobile app or trade it using its web interface.
