Revolut Stops Offering Crypto Services to US Customers Due to Regulatory Uncertainty

Revolut is a Fintech enterprise that is operational in the USA. However, the firm has decided to close its doors to American consumers on account of regulatory issues. The management of the firm has cited that there are ongoing regulatory issues in the region.

To this effect, the firm has decided that it will halt cryptocurrency trading services for account holders in America starting 2nd September this year. The company has maintained that consumers will not be able to place new purchase orders starting in September.

However, consumers will be able to sell their reserves until 3rd October. After October, Revolut is going to shutter down all services in the country. The news is not a surprise under the pretext of an ongoing crackdown on the cryptocurrency markets.

At present, various crypto enterprises are facing regulatory troubles from the Securities and Exchange Commission. Other agencies such as the Department of Justice and CFTC have also decided to partake in bringing legal action against miscellaneous cryptocurrency enterprises.

Some of the crypto coins include MATIC, SOL, and ADA. All of these cryptocurrencies have been marked down as unregistered securities by SEC. The firm has told the media that it is planning to sell these three tokens before 18 September.

An email sent to Revolut consumers from the management has informed them that these three crypto tokens will be delisted from the platform on 3rd September. The consumer base of Revolut in the US makes up only 1% of the international market share.

The firm has informed its consumers that any remaining reserves in Revolut wallets will be liquidated after 2nd October.
