Due to lack of bitlicense, IDEX will block orders from users with New York State IP addresses

On October 23, Aurora, the company behind a decentralized exchange IDEX, announced via Twitter that IDEX would begin blocking new orders from users with New York State IP addresses on Thursday, October 25th (6pm UTC).

According to the announcement, cancels and withdrawals will remain active.

When Twitter users started asking the company questions, Aurora answered that blocking of NY was due to the bitlicense regulation. IDEX does not have the bitlicense and cannot offer services to NY users at this time.
