Newbie here; hi all and thanks for the tons of info on this site...
I live in Thailand and trade with bx and binance. My brother in the UK handles my UK affairs, and periodically transfers GBP to me at regular extortionate bank rates.
As a significant amount of ££ is due to be transferred, I asked him instead to purchase BTC at his end and then send it to me direct from his broker/exchange. This would allow me to cash in via bx, in Thai baht, which is an effective 10% premium over regular GBP/THB exchange rates.
We have looked at Etoro, Coinbase and Coinfloor. Etoro does not allow withdrawals, Coinbase requires deposits to be made in Euro, and Coinfloor has a somewhat questionable record of delays and sloppy support services that are not conducive to trust.
Is there an alternate route, perhaps a UK-based exchange or reasonably priced broker geared to executing a straightforward £-BTC purchase and withdrawal without having to jump through hoops?
