Poloniex data leak

Poloniex, the USA based cryptocurrency exchange announced it is spinning out from its parent company, Circle, and will shut off its U.S. customers.

Poloniex will operate as an independent entity that will be called  Polo Digital Assets, Ltd, and will be backed by an unnamed Asian investment group that plans to spend more than $100M developing the exchange to offer new features, services and assets to global customers . 

Poloniex’s US based customers will not be included in the spin out. US customers will no longer be able to trade starting on Nov 1, 2019, and they will have until at least December 15, 2019, to withdraw their assets.

Poloniex is a leading cryptocurrency exchange with monthly trading volume of $573,140,117. It was launched in 2014. The exchange charges low crypto deposit and withdrawal fees compared to other exchanges, and it currently supports 95 trading assets.

Circle acquired Poloniex for about $400 million in February 2018.

Circle says that they faced challenges as a US company growing a competitive international exchange, and Circle will double down on our efforts to build a more open, global and accessible financial system. This includes significantly expanding the services we offer that are built around USDC, the market’s fastest-growing fiat stablecoin, and expanding and growing SeedInvest, the largest equity crowdfunding platform in the United States.

Telecom Egypt Blocks Access to Coinbase, Binance and Kraken Exchanges

Egyptian Telecommunication Company (TE data), Egypt’s largest internet service provider has blocked access to some major cryptocurrency exchanges such as Coinbase, Binance , Bitfinex , Kraken and Bitstamp. TE Data is owned and operated by Telecom Egypt.

TE Data has 65% of the market share and controls over 70% of the internet bandwidth in Egypt.

Egyptian users will have to use VPN, to switch to another ISP such as Vodafone Egypt or to use Opera and TOR web browsers in order to bypass the censorship.

So far, Poloniex, Huobi, Hotbit, Bittrex, Kucoin and Gemini websites are not affected by this new censorship.

Number of blocked websites continued to rise in Egypt, including independent news websites that published articles critical of the Egyptian government. Other banned sites include international news outlets such as the Arabic channel Al Jazeera and the Huffington Post Arabic.

The new banking law for the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) bans creating, promoting or operating cryptocurrency platforms for issuing or trading encrypted currency or cryptocurrency without obtaining the necessary licenses in advance.
