Russia’s telecom regulator Roskomnadzor has blacklisted Binance exchange
Russia’s telecom regulator Roskomnadzor has added Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange, to the list of blacklisted websites in the country.
According to the announcement on Telegram Channel, Binance said it was included on the list of prohibited domains because its website includes information about the purchase and sale of crypto assets like bitcoin.
On September 24, 2020, we received a notification from Roskomnadzor of the Russian Federal about the inclusion of the site https://www.binance.com in the domain name registry containing information prohibited for distribution in Russia. It follows from the letter that this is information about the possibility of acquiring electronic cryptocurrency (Bitcoin).
In its announcement, the exchange revealed that it had not received any prior warning from Russian authorities about any violations.
Previously, we were not previously notified of any claims by law enforcement agencies, civil government services or courts prior to receiving the above notification. We have now engaged our legal counsels for further advice and would like to assure all of our Russian users that there will be no disruption to their services in the interim and that their funds are safe.
As AZCoin News reported before, Roskomnadzor has previously blacklisted Bestchange.ru, a major local crypto data aggregator.
