Bittrex trading platform announced that it will stop its United States users from trading in more than 30 cryptocurrencies. The coming altcoin news was revealed in a blog post that the exchange published a few days ago.
According to the blog post, June 21 will be the day when the U.S. Traders will no longer be able to access 32 cryptocurrencies that were listed on the exchange including STORJ and QTUM. The Bittrex trading platform noted that all of the United States users will receive an email that contains explanation of why they will no longer be able to trade the listed assets. The options that were included in the email by the trading platform include selling them for assets that will still be available to the users, moving the orders off of the exchange and canceling the orders.
After the decision comes into forces, the customers from the States will no longer be able to buy and sell the coins while all open orders that involve the listed assets will be canceled. Some limited functionality regarding the assets will still be available for the traders and the coins left there will be transferred to the Bittrex International Trading platform. We can read more from the blog post:
“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.“
Bittrex International is a Bittrex trading platform based in Europe which lists multiple tokens that are only available on the international platform and not to the United States Users. As reported previously in the latest cryptocurrency news, back at the beginning of March this year, the crypto exchange canceled its first Initial Exchange Offering (ICO) which it was planned to host on the Bittrex International platform.
Also, the decentralized exchange developed by one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges-Binance which aims to block all website access to users based in 29 including the United States. Previously, Bittrex was denounced by the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) for its allegedly inadequate policies and controls regarding its Anti-Money Laundering (AML) practices, Know Your Customer (KYC) and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) standards. At the event, the NYDFS denied a BitLicense application from the American exchange Bittrex as well.
First Legally Registered DAO Created By Blockchain Devs dOrg
“dOrg asked us to help design a DAO legal wrapper after discovering the potential of BBLLCs. We believe that dOrg is now the first legal entity that directly references blockchain code as its source of governance. Its material operations and ownership interests are managed entirely on-chain.”The dOrg group also noted that the BBLLC registration process should become much easier:
“We want to make what we just did accessible to anyone in the world. Ultimately, the process of configuring and deploying a legally registered DAO will be as easy as creating a social media account.”The ConsenSys-backed ‘’smart legal contracts’’ as previously explained in the coming altcoin news, project OpenLaw proposed a new Ethereum dapp called Incomshare.me which helps students to tokenize income share contracts and to take participation in secondary markets with them. The contracts help the students commit negotiated portions of future salaries. The Incomeshare.me platform uses the ethereum blockchain to host these contracts. OpenLaw community member Josh Ma noted
“As this alternative model for funding higher-education becomes more popular, enabling a secondary market would accelerate its adoption by providing liquidity and opportunities to mitigate risk, both attractive qualities for investors.”
Bitcoin Futures Trading Testing By Bakkt Officially Starts In July
“On July 22, two days after Apollo 11’s 50th anniversary, Bakkt will initiate user acceptance testing for its bitcoin futures listed and traded at ICE Futures U.S. and cleared at ICE Clear US.’’The announcement was expected for a long time now. Bakkt which has named itself as the game-changing crypto ecosystem for all of the institutional investors faced multiple delays in the past. They announced the first testing in August 2018. The biggest issue for Bakkt’s team was the regulatory uncertainty and it still remains the most important problem to solve. Bitcoin futures trading will represent the first of many offerings but it still unknown when a total rollout of the service will be delivered. Setting the date on the pilot phase is coming in a good period but the coming week the rival provider CME Group announced a new record volume for its product. As previously reported in the coming altcoin news, the CME futures passed more than $500 million in implied USD value. Also, a few days ago the new crypto index Cryptoindex was launched which allows traders using TradingView, Bloomberg and Reuters to access information on Bitcoin and other major digital currencies and tokens. At the same time, CBOE which is the first bitcoin futures provider in the world will stop all operations later this month. The executives blamed the poor market performance and announced their decision just weeks before the BTC markets went into bull run mode reaching $9,000. White noted:
“Bakkt may be a form of moonshot, but it’s grounded in an earthbound endeavor to support the future of finance and the adoption of blockchain technology.’’Bakkt’s effort to help institutional investors and institutions, in general, to launch safely on the market is a very important element for the future. There are currently many new regulations and recommendations coming from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) which will put stringent new requirements on all the crypto-related businesses.
Square Crypto Announces Its First Hire Of Ex-Google Director
“@moneyball is amazing. Can’t think of anyone better for this role. Congratulations @sqcrypto and @moneyball!!!”Square Crypto is going on with the strategy to the vest since coming to the social media platforms in March. Since then, they have shown us multiple times that they are working on something that will be groundbreaking even for crypto. While they have the name ‘’crypto’’ in the company’s name, they are mainly focused on Bitcoin which make sense since Dorsey is expecting for the number one cryptocurrency to become the ‘’native currency’’ of the World Wide Web. The company stated:
“We are close to making our first hire. So let’s set some expectations. True to @jack’s founding tweets, we are building open source projects that will make mass adoption not just possible but inevitable. Our goal isn’t to make money, but to improve it.”As it was explained previously in the latest cryptocurrency news, Dorsey’s team knows how to hype the community on Twitter after they even brought Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk into the heart of the conversations sometimes. Twitter, on the other hand, is at the totally opposite way of the crypto spectrum without indicating that they will ever integrate crypto.
