New Appointments at CoinCorner [Press Release]


New Appointments at CoinCorner

Douglas, Tuesday 14th November 2017

CoinCorner, the British bitcoin exchange, has recently announced the expansion of their team, with the appointment of five new employees in the past six months.

The company welcomes Rachael Duke, Ross Wilson, Zakk Lakin, Lucy Turner and Lizzie Pope in the areas of marketing, development and customer support.

Lizzie Pope, CoinCorner’s newly appointed Marketing Assistant said “I am excited to have been given the opportunity to join a start-up business in an industry that is growing. I have found that every day is different working here and I am enjoying being in a job role where I have so much versatility to my role.  I settled in almost immediately, everyone is so friendly here.

The customer support team welcomed Rachael Duke earlier this year who said, I love being part of a small thriving team - CoinCorner feels more like a family than a company. The bitcoin industry is so interesting! I'm excited to see the team expand more and to see the company achieve great things in the future.

The bitcoin industry is a hot topic at the moment, having seen exponential growth since the beginning of the year, surpassing $100 billion total market capitalisation last month.

There was an overwhelming response to CoinCorner’s recruitment drive earlier this year and the company shows no signs of slowing down, with plans to recruit another three employees before the end of the year. Upcoming roles will be available in the accounts, development and compliance departments.

Co-founder of CoinCorner, Daniel Scott, said the expansion of the team was a major step forward in taking the business to its the next stage of development.
"We are delighted to welcome Rachel, Ross, Zakk, Lucy and Lizzie to CoinCorner.  The bitcoin industry has grown at a great pace along with CoinCorner these last few years. In light of the recent news of the Islands GDP drop, we hope the fintech industry we operate in will be the boost the Island needs to help aid in the resurgence over the coming years ."

We've Increased Our Credit Card Limits

Back in October 2014, we introduced card payments for bitcoin, however, due to the high risk nature of credit card purchases (fraud, chargebacks), our customers have been limited to a £200/€200 deposit per 30-day rolling period.

Over the last 6 months, we have been working with our payment processor, developing and introducing measures to prevent fraud. Our hard work has paid off and we are happy to announce that we have increased our credit card limits.

£300/€300 limit for all credit cards
We have increased our credit card limits from £200/€200 to £300/€300 (per 30-day rolling period). Next time you log in to your CoinCorner account, your credit card limit will automatically be increased.

£1000/€1000 limit for all credit cards after initial bank transfer
We will increase your limit to £1000/€1000 (per 30-day rolling period) after you make a deposit to your CoinCorner account via bank transfer.

Bitcoin Hardfork

You may be aware of a number of recent proposals for technical changes to the Bitcoin network. All BTC stored with CoinCorner will remain safe during the potential events below.

There is a proposed hard fork which is scheduled for 25th October 2017. If this goes ahead it will create a separate blockchain and coin, currently being referred to as Bitcoin Gold. CoinCorner will not support the new blockchain or its associated coin.

Customer funds held with CoinCorner will be kept safe when the above events happen, however to ensure that funds stay safe, CoinCorner may temporarily disable some functionality 24 hours beforehand, and during the period where the activation is due to happen, until the situation becomes more clear. This means that customers will be unable to buy, sell, deposit or withdraw Bitcoin until we are comfortable (we hope this will take no longer than 24-48 hours, but it may take longer).

If you do not want to have access to any new coins that are a result of a UAHF, or do…
