Cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex has revealed that it will block its US-based users from trading in 32 cryptocurrencies, after 21 June 2019.

As per the announcement, US traders won’t be able to access a slew of coins listed on the exchange, including QTUM and STORJ. However, the exchange mentioned that the users will receive an email with explanations regarding what they are and are not allowed to do with the assets. Their options are selling them for assets that will stay available to them, canceling orders, and moving them off the exchange.

Moreover, after the change comes into effect, the customers won’t be able to buy or sell the coins, and all open orders involving the assets will be canceled. All that being said, some limited functionality concerning the assets will still be available to US traders, while the coins will be transitioned to the Bittrex International platform.
