Important Information for New York Customers

10/24/19 Update: NYDFS has requested that Bittrex postpone the New York account closure deadline until further notice. New York residents will be able to continue to withdraw funds, but may not deposit or trade.

6/28/19 Update: NYDFS has approved Bittrex to grant withdrawals for customers who missed the June 9 deadline.

As we have previously notified you, Bittrex was required to cease all operations for New York residents.  All trading for New York customers was halted on April 11, 2019 and all account access was disabled on June 9, 2019 by direction of the New York Department of Financial Services. This decision is a result of regulatory requirements that would have materially affected other parts of our business, including how Bittrex operates in other states and countries, and we can no longer operate in New York State.

However, DFS asked Bittrex to reopen the ability of NY residents to withdraw tokens, for those who have missed the deadlines. Below you'll find some helpful information to help you through this process.
