Israeli Court Rules Against One-Size-Fits-All Bitcoin Ban by Bank46

An Israeli court ruled on March 17, 2019, that banks can't enforce a blanket ban against all accounts linked to cryptocurrency. Instead, the court said, banks need to consider the specific type and scope of crypto-related activity before determining whether or not to open an account.

The case involved a lawsuit begun in May 2018 by Israminers, a bitcoin mining company based in Ukraine, against the Union Bank of Israel. The bank refused to accept deposits into the company's account, and ultimately shut the account down because much of the money in the account was related to bitcoin.
