IDEX decentralized exchange will restrict access to users from New York
IDEX cryptocurrency exchange turned out to be not as decentralized as its users might expect.
Developer International Distributed Ethereum Exchange (IDEX) or International Distributed Ethereum-exchanges company Aurora posted on Twitter users about Tom, that starting Thursday, October 25th, those using NYS IP addresses will no longer be able to place orders for her platform. Output funds and canceling orders remain active. No other information is provided in the message..
Expected, decision Aurora though it and It was dictated by unknown reasons, caused disturbance or at least the confusion of the community members. Some of they are offered to rename the exchange to ICEX in order to emphasize its centralization, others suggest that after six months on the site will be mandatory verification of traders introduced.
Of course no one prohibits users resort to help VPN for bypass restrictions, but This situation looks especially comical in the context of the white paper Aurora, a good half of which is devoted to subject dubious Fed practitioner, dollar weakness USA etc.
“Inspired by the ideas of free banking, Aurora provides his clients advanced, open and stable financial network, accessible to anyone in the world, regardless from him geographic location or status, ”says document.
Obviously, the values of free banking end where the powers of the US Securities and Exchange Commission, New York State Department of Financial Services, or another regulator begin., which the their can do not share and do not care on what word "decentralized" appears in the white paper Aurora 82 times.
