Representatives of the Bitstamp exchange in an official press release announced changes to the rules for servicing customers of the service. Now they are asking their users to update their sources of cryptocurrencies, citing the need to comply with the laws of financial regulators.
Bitstamp began to require users to provide data on nationality, place of birth and tax residency, and in addition, information about the origin of digital currencies, as well as annual income from this asset class.
Bitstamp representatives said that this is necessary to continue the operation of the platform and comply with the requirements of the supervisory authorities. The press service of the company informed customers about this by e-mail. Bitstamp urged users to update their crypto origin information as soon as possible to avoid further issues.
The exchange also provided an official list of documents clarifying the new rules related to fiat sources of deposited funds, including payroll and pension payrolls, inheritance documents, savings documents, gifts, mining receipts and others.
Sources related to digital currencies include crypto deposits and withdrawals, account login information, work contracts, screenshots, handwritten agreements, and more.
A few weeks ago, the crypto platform promised users a $25 bonus for providing information about the origin of digital assets.
The earlier edition informed that the leaders of Bitstamp set new goals for international expansion. They strongly stated the need to involve women and retirees in the United States in investing and trading. Representatives of the company assured that these groups of people are not sufficiently aware of the benefits of the crypto market.
