Russia has waged an uphill battle against the crypto community. The last to be affected has been the Binance website has been blocked from being blacklisted. We tell you!
Binance domain is blacklisted and blocked
Binance shared yesterday through its website and its Russian Telegram channel that the Russian telecommunications regulator Roskomnadzor added the website to the registry of platforms that disseminate prohibited information, specifically regarding the acquisition of Bitcoin.
Therefore, with the inclusion of the Binance domain to this list, the website is blocked for all users who wish to access it from that country. Censorship? Does it seem strange to us?
In this way, according to Binance, the crypto exchange was not previously notified by the country’s authorities. And consequently, you will initiate legal action.
Obviously Binance rushed to assure all its clients in the country that their funds had not been affected and, therefore, they were safe despite being the website blocked.
Likewise, Binance assured that it will continue to provide its services to resident clients of that country and, in order to access, they must make use of a VPN.
Many in the crypto community have attributed the fact that Binance has been blocked in Russia to its recent intention to launch its crypto debit card in the country. Is it true?
