Cash App banned me for buying BTC for gambling

  1. This really sucks because I actually use Cash App all the time to pay bills and transfer money to friends. When I got banned from Coinbase I didn't really care because I only used them for buying bitcoin. Anyway, this is a warning to those out there who are using the Square Cash App that they better be careful if they are using the app to fund their betting accounts...

    Did you use a middle-man wallet like BRD or Samurai Wallet so that you weren't transferring directly from your Cash App to the gambling site?

    Here is a relevant section from their Terms and Conditions - The Cash Card may not be used for any illegal activity. You agree not to use the Cash Card for Internet gambling, whether or not internet gambling is illegal in the jurisdiction in which you are located. You are liable for transactions you initiate by the use of the Cash Card, whether deemed legal or illegal

    Yes, it's available in the UK too but with limited functionality. I'm not sure if the debit card is available yet in the UK.

    It's possible that some people are getting banned for other reasons. For example, on Jack Dorseys recent appearance on Joe Rogan, he said they ban people if it looks like they are trading. Worth a watch...

    Jack Dorsey said in his podcast interview with Stephan Livera that both Twitter and Cash App were working towards integrating Lightning Network transactions. As far as I know, Lightning Network transactions offer far more privacy than onchain transactions so it will make it much harder to identify and penalize Lightning Network deposits and withdrawals to gambling sites.

    The Gemini exchange is now also sending out letters to customers who they suspect are buying bitcoin for the purposes of online gambling and threatening to close their accounts.

    I recently bought BTC using the Square Cash App but the option to withdraw wasn't available to me. Why is that?
