Crypto Industry News:
On September 24, the Binance exchange officially announced on the Russian Telegram channel that the Russian telecommunications regulator Roskomnadzor had added this page to the register of platforms disseminating prohibited information.
According to the announcement, the Binance exchange was included in the list due to the distribution of data related to the acquisition of digital currencies such as Bitcoin. Gleb Kostarev, head of Binance's operations in Russia, said the exchange announced the news immediately after receiving the notification from Roskomnadzor.
Despite putting the domain on the list of banned websites, Russians can still access it without any additional tools like a VPN. Currently, the URL can be found in the official website registry in the blacklist of Roskomnadzor. According to the data, the site was added to the list on June 2, 2020, and access to it is "not restricted".
In a public announcement, Binance executives stressed that it had not received any information about the restriction until September 24, stating:
"Before receiving the above notification, we were not previously informed of any claims from law enforcement agencies, civil services or courts. We have now turned to our solicitors for further advice and would like to assure all our Russian users that their services will not be interrupted in the meantime and their funds are safe. "
As the Binance website was blacklisted by Roskomnadzor in June 2020, this action does not appear to be related to Binance's plans to introduce its cryptocurrency debit card in Russia as the plans were announced a little later in September 2020.
