Beginning July 8, 2019 (9:00 AM EST) users with IPs originating from a country that is embargoed or restricted by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) are not able to use Bancor’s web application, https://www.bancor.network, to convert tokens:
Restricted countries: Belarus, Burundi, Central African Republic, Congo, DPRK (North Korea), Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Myanmar (Burma), Republic of South Sudan, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen, Zimbabwe.
If you have a Bancor Wallet, you will still be able to log-in, hold tokens, and transfer tokens from a restricted country. Only the convert functionality will be disabled.
We would like to clarify that this functionality will be blocked to users accessing the website bancor.network, which offers an interface to blockchain activity. As the Bancor Liquidity Network is a collection of smart contracts on the blockchain, we cannot restrict users from accessing the blockchain itself. This cannot be blocked.
We thank all our community members for their continued support, and we will continue to rally with other industry participants towards innovation and freedom of currency.
