The beleaguered Russian cryptocurrency and bitcoin exchange BTC-e has kept its promise to relaunch the internet site. The domain btc-e.nz was active today, although not available to customers in a few components of the world, such as the United States, because of country’s policies. The web site had promised to reimburse customers through tradable tokens for any losses they’d incurred because of the seizure of the domain by the FBI. The domain was seized after the arrest of Alexander Vinnik in Greece in July on expenses of money laundering, mainly the laundering of the stolen Bitcoins from Mt. Gox.
The reboot of the website comes with very little functionality. Customers are reputedly able to receive, send messages, and check their account balances. Functions and offerings need to progressively come back on-line, in keeping with the roadmap laid out by the BTC-e’s plan on bitcointalk.org.
Stated on the web site:
“In parallel with the criminal problem of restructuring, customers will be given the possibility to test the integrity of the digital stability within the consumer’s account, and customers will be capable of make modifications in the protection of the account. For chat and assist, chat could be available. For those reasons, the cryptocurrency and bitcoin exchange can be released on the old domain. You’ll be able to log in and check your balance earlier than recounting.”
The administrators of the web site claim to be transferring consumer information to a yet-unnamed new commercial enterprise entity, which will open on or around September 15. The new entity is to be compliant under the modern European guidelines for investment companies. Whether the relaunch maintains and customers have extra access to finances remains to be seen. The BTC-e’s representatives have assured customers that the website would finally be functional and that losses might be reimbursed.
