If you’re an ANZ Bank customer looking to dive into the world of crypto, you’re in luck! In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to buy Bitcoin and other digital assets using your ANZ account. And we will explain ANZ policies on crypto and moving money from your bank account onto a crypto exchange.

Is ANZ crypto-friendly?

Mostly. In fact, according to a conversation that CoinJar had with their representative, they seem very easy to work with.

ANZ has no published policy on the website (or anywhere) at the time of writing, about how much money you can move from your ANZ account to a crypto exchange. However a quick call to 13 13 14 will let you know about their policies.

The customer service spokesperson told CoinJar that there are currently no hard limits on how much you can transmit to a crypto currency exchange.

However, “if you are a new customer, making a first-time transfer to a cryptocurrency exchange, that transaction might get flagged by our fraud detection team. And that transaction may be quarantined for up to 72 hours.”

After the fraud team understands what you are doing, and who you are, they should not bother you again, theoretically.

Limits on ANZ

The spokesperson also said that there's no limit on how much you can transfer across to crypto exchanges. However, like any transaction going anywhere, there are limits according to what payment method you use.

“A pay-anyone transfer has a standard limit of $25,000 a day. Using BPay, a single transaction is up to $50,000 a day. There’s a limit of $75,000 on internet banking per day.”

The spokesperson also stressed that the area is new and evolving and could change potentially as well. So place a call yourself before opening an account at ANZ to check the latest information.

Another thing to know is that payments to Binance are a no-go, as the crypto exchange is blocked by ANZ. And a DeFi platform called is also blocked by ANZ. So if you want to use either of those platforms, then ANZ is not the bank for you. (Or rather, Binance and SafeHaven are not the platforms for you).

If this information stays correct, and the fraud team accepts you as genuine, then it appears that ANZ, at least on the surface, is a crypto-friendly bank.
