Major cryptocurrency exchange operator, Bittrex, announced it will disable support for 32 listed cryptoassets for customers based in the U.S. Among the cryptocurrencies set to be disabled on Bittrex – and transitioned to Bittrex International – are Storj (STORJ), Gifto (GTO), and Enigma (ENG).
Bittrex’s decision comes only a few weeks after Poloniex stopped offering nine cryptocurrencies to domestic customers due to regulatory uncertainty. Effective on June 21, the U.S.-based exchange stated in a blog post that:
“U.S. Customers will be sent an email communication from Bittrex that provides guidance on what they can and cannot do with their affected Tokens/Coins in connection with this change before an affected market is no longer available.”
