Bittrex, a cryptocurrency exchange, bans US customers from Trading up to 32 Cryptos

  • Bittrex will block US customers from trading 32 cryptocurrencies after June 21, according to a post on its blog.
  • This is part of a ban affecting users in 29 countries including the US.

Bittrex added that US customers would receive explanatory emails, but the ban would still come into effect on June 21.

This move comes in the wake of a crackdown by U.S. regulators on initial coin offerings (ICOs), which has seen some exchanges pay multimillion-dollar fines.

A section of the post said: “U.S. Customers may withdraw or continue to hold in their Bittrex wallet affected Tokens/Coins for as long as Bittrex International supports a market in those Tokens/Coins.“
