Definitely not banking on Bitcoin, or any other cryptocurrencies for that matter
Lloyds Banking Group is banning its credit card customers from buying virtual currencies
amid fears they could run up huge losses.
Although digital currencies - who's value is calculated by multiplying the number of digital coins by their price - could reportedly still be purchased with debit cards.
"On the one hand should customers have to do what Lloyds says? Should it be seen as something different from gambling? Possibly not, it's merely what you use the credit that you are given for. On the other hand I actually personally think it's a good thing. To save some people from themselves. This market is probably one of the craziest markets we've ever seen."
Lloyds is Britain's biggest mortgage lender.
It apparently fears credit card owners will buy Bitcoin hoping to make a profit when its value goes up
but instead ending up be laden with debt when its price falls.
Digital currencies plunged at the end of last week
Bitcoin - the best known - at one point slid below $8,000
It's value has fallen around 40 percent so far this year as worries about a global regulatory clampdown increase.
