In an important subject for the Bitcoin market and cryptocurrency traders, there were rumors that giant Binance, one of the largest digital currency exchanges around the world, prevented users from the United States and 28 other countries from accessing the Binance platform.
This unconfirmed news has made the cryptocurrency community on the Twitter website in a state of confusion, but just as often with rumors, the truth seems a bit more complicated – and less exciting.
In this regard, CCN has published a detailed report.
to CCN, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao revealed the origin of the hysteria and explained that this geographical group of users from the 29 countries concerned, including the United States and the State of Venezuela, applies only to one website at binance.org . The CEO also explained that the decentralized platform, Binance DEX, itself does not prohibit access to users based on their geographical location.

Iraq, Kosovo, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen and Zimbabwe.
Please note that by July 1, 2019 (UTC 00:00) UTC, the Wallet Interface will not be accessible through the Binance.org website to users with an IP address from the countries listed above for alternatives and solutions.
