The Belarusian-born crypto platform shuts down operations for Russians in response to the invasion of Ukraine

Crypto trading firm Currency.com has announced that it has suspended operations for customers based in Russia after the country imposed “violence and disorder” on Ukraine.

In an announcement Tuesday, Currency.com called Russian residents would no longer be able to access their services after the platform’s decision to block Russian-based customers from opening new accounts. According to Currency.com’s website, the Gibraltar-based crypto trading platform has offices in Kyiv, London and Vilnius, but was previously licensed and headquartered in Belarus.
