A Note for Israelis concerning bit2c.co.il
As we all know, Israel is a country known for its socialist past and high regulation. We have only one bitcoin exchange in Israel that accepts Israeli bank transfers: [bit2c.co.il](https://bit2c.co.il). The rest are ATM's or only accept high fee credit cards. They recently raised their fees for small customers (under 20,000 shekels \~= $6000 per month) from 1% to 3%. This pushed me off of their site. I am now looking for alternatives. Hopefully we can either get a market going on bisq or the peer to peer market can take off. I'm happy to hear your thoughts.
