A big-time crypto exchange Bittrex announced it will block 32 crypto assets for US-based users. This news comes from an official Bittrex blog post. The users will get an email that will provide guidance on what they can and cannot do with such tokens before the change comes into effect
The users will not be able to buy or sell through the markets affected by the change after 21st June. The platform’s systems will cancel all open orders in the affected markets. The users can withdraw or continue to hold in their Bittrex affected tokens/coins for as long as Bittrex International supports a market for those tokens/coins. The change will not affect the availability of the markets on Bittrex International for non-U.S. customers. QTUM, STORJ, ENG, MFT, and FCT are among the coins that have been walled off.
Recently, Binance also announced the decision to block access to the exchange to the users from 29 countries, including the U.S.
