Dear Bitfinex User,

Earlier today we have sent an email alerting all unverified users that due to recent policy changes we will no longer be offering services to individual users that are US residents.

The reason we sent out the email was to make sure that those users who missed the announcements we published on August 11, 2017 and on October 16, 2017 but are in fact US residents, would be made aware of the changed policy towards US residents.

Unfortunately, it seems it was not clear enough in the previous message that the email was sent out to all users that have not completed KYC account verification. If you received the previous email, it does not imply that your specific account is marked to be considered to be used by a US resident.

To be completely clear, only if you are an individual user, you are a US resident and you are still actively using the platform for trading or offering margin funding, will you be required stop using the platform immediately.

If you did receive the email we have sent out earlier today and this additional email now, but you are not a US resident yourself, the changed policy regarding US residents will not affect you.

Hopefully, this clarification helps take away any uncertainty that may have resulted from the previous message.

Thank you,
The Bitfinex Team

Thats crazy, im so sick of new platforms disregarding the U. S. Cryptocurrency should be for everyone. Shame on this government. They are just mad because they cant tax it yet. Thats my opinion.
