Crypto exchange Binance introduces restrictions for Russian clients

Crypto exchange Binance introduces restrictions for Russian clients

Today, April 21, 2022, crypto exchange Binance announced changes in domestic policy in relation to the citizens of the Russian Federation.

In this article, we will talk about what threatens users of the Russian Federation and analyze the above statement.

Introduction of restrictions for users of the Russian Federation

Let's start with the fact that the EU has banned any operations on the cryptocurrency market for citizens of the Russian Federation. For example, the Belarusian stock exchange stopped servicing Russian clients. From April 12, it is forbidden to replenish the account, and from April 26 it will not be possible to open new transactions. On May 10, all services will be completely disabled.

Initially Binance did not want to impose restrictions on users of the Russian Federation, but still, over time, the management changed its mind.

The message about the decision to introduce restrictions is as follows:

"All accounts Binance Russian citizens or persons residing in Russia whose total value of crypto assets exceeds €10 will unfortunately be limited. Users will only be able to use the withdrawal feature until further notice.", - reports the representative office of the crypto exchange.

To work with HYIPs, we still recommend using crypto wallets instead of exchanges. Here are some examples of the most popular crypto wallets:

This news caused a stormy reaction from the clients of the Russian Federation, but having analyzed the situation, we can say that not everything is as scary as it seems. In fact, if you have less than €10 on the exchange balance, you can continue to use it. Otherwise, you can refuse services Binance and go to one of the crypto exchanges indicated by us. In fact, funds are not blocked, the possibility of withdrawal will remain in any case.

Of course, from the point of view of security, we would still recommend withdrawing money from the above exchange and using its analogues, and the best thing for large amounts would be to buy cold wallets, because long-term prospects for the exchange Binanceif you are a citizen of the Russian Federation, we do not see.

The information that is now being learned from the support of the exchange is very vague. It's like they don't know how things are going to go.

We hope that the article was useful for you and you will take care of the safety of your cryptocurrency. Leave comments with your thoughts about this news. Successful and profitable investment!

    It's a pity. I use safepal, but they say that they got to it. Now, without verification, there will be restrictions on buying, selling and replenishing the balance. Thanks for the article.

    I don't get those sanctions at all, they claim they don't want to sanction the people but the government yet I only see people suffer from these sanctions

    Thank you for the article! Indeed, a bank over 10k euros would be less risky to keep on a cold wallet

        I agree, when I went into the office, I thought that I accidentally entered Binance out of habit xD
        Of the minuses, I realized that they do not have a cryptocurrency/cryptocurrency pair and a converter, it was convenient on binance, I would have to do everything through usdt

    It hurts to watch how a prosperous (very relatively) country turns into a pariah, but for sure there should be a white one behind the black stripe
