Bittrex is taking new customers again

Cryptocurrency exchange service based in Seattle, Bittrex is now allowing registrations of new users.

The startup announced on Tuesday that New users can now sign up via the exchange’s renewed website. According to a statement, registrations were initially put on hold in December due to full capacity, and new users were registered through a waiting list program over the past few months. All clients will have to go through the identity verification procedures to complete their account creation processes.

According to the announcement, the exchange service is also starting an “enhanced website” with upgraded security.

The CEO of Bittrex Bill Shihara stated that the company’s “obligation to render astable platform and excellent customer service to clients” as the reason for initially pausing registrations.

He added: “After painstakingly working to enhance our infrastructure and improve our website, we’re pleased to announce that new users’ registration reopened today.”

The company emphasized that it had increased its team to incorporate ex-Amazon employees and former members of the United States Departments of Justice and Homeland Security.

The move comes two months after the exchange released its token listing rules. As reported by Coindesk, Bittrex employees conduct preliminary reviews of projects, but the company maintained that tokens which make it to the stage of full review must also go through compliance procedures to be listed within the U.S.
