Update: New Terms of Service – Restricted Locations Section

 

On Sunday, February 25, 2018, Bittrex released its updated Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. We have noticed that there is some confusion among Bittrex users specifically regarding section 2.2: Restricted Locations.

The updates to this section did not change who is legally allowed to use the Bittrex Exchange and its services. Currently, U.S. law prohibits Bittrex from doing business with residents of North Korea, Iran, the Crimean region, Syria, and Cuba as well any person with economic sanctions levied against them specifically by the federal government.

According to our current Terms of Service, if you are not a resident of the countries listed above, are not subject to any personal sanctions, and meet the rest of the criteria listed in our terms of service, you are eligible to use our services at this time.

It’s important to note that the U.S. government periodically updates the lists of prohibited people, regions and countries, and when the federal government makes these changes, it also negates the eligibility of any users who are affected by the list revisions.
