Please take a look at our latest post, The Future of Filler, for an update on the below announcement.
NAB recently advised of their intentions of exiting the Australian Bitcoin industry. This means that our banking relationship with them will soon come to an end. We’ve learned from NAB that this is a part of a broader strategic and policy shift on their behalf. We’re disappointed with NAB’s decision – as it affects many companies in Australia – but are grateful for the service they’ve provided us to this point and how they’ve handled delivering the news.
Your Filler (Australian dollar) balances and your bitcoin are safe and secure. We’re working on new ways to use Filler and, while we’re at it, we’re going to make it faster than ever to deposit Australian dollars into your CoinJar. If you currently bank with NAB, you will no longer enjoy fast tracked electronic transfers when our relationship ends.
We have done this before; we transitioned from another banking partner in 2013 in a much shorter timeframe. NAB have given us plenty of notice which allows us to transition with minimal disruption to service. We’ll keep you updated through every stage.
Thanks for bitcoining with us!
