BTC-e is online again

The Russian Bitcoin BTC-e exchange is back online after a month. The stock exchange was shut down last month by the US authorities due to money laundering.

The page is now available again, but under a different address: btc-e. nz.

Some users have complained that they can not log in. This may mean that certain countries, including the US, are blocked. It was also reported that a VPN could help circumvent this geoblock.

So far it seems that the users are only limited to chatting and checking their wallets. In a Bitcoin TalkPost on Wednesday, representatives of the exchange explained that further functions with the new re-launch of BTC-e will come. The rebranding of BTC-e is done in a regulated environment by the new investment company.

CoinDesk reported that more than 3. 200 users were already active on the site.

It has already been announced by BTC-e that a debt token will be issued for compensating the confiscated coins.

After restarting the website, the site operators have recommended to reset or update the security settings.

The recommendation states: "As the data has been confiscated, there is a high probability that the data will be compromised. This is the reason that the safety settings must be reset to ensure safety ".
