In order to receive a loan on Bitbond, you will be asked to connect your bank account. This connection gives us read-only access, meaning we can see your cash flow but cannot edit or change any data. If for some reason a bank connection is not possible we will ask you to provide PDF bank statements for the last three months. Unfortunately, finding and downloading your bank statement isn't always as straightforward as it should be.

In order to make it easy for you, we've decided to provide instructions for all the major banks. So far, the list focuses primarily on UK banks, but we will add more countries in time.
