Coinpayments is closing
« on: March 08, 2014, 10:01:17 AM »
I received this email from Coinpayments last night

 It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the closure of CoinPayments.net. FinCEN has ruled that Bitcoin is in their purview which would make us a money transmitter. We simply do not have the resources to register with FinCEN and most of the 50 states as a MSB and comply with all of the AML/KYC laws (and no realistic way to raise the funds to do so.)The shutdown will happen in 3 stages:1. We will stop accepting new user registrations effective immediately.2. We will stop processing new transactions at11:59:59 PM EST on March 24, 2014 (transactions already in progress at that time will be completed).3. The website will otherwise remain operational until 11:59:59 PM EST on March 31st, 2014 when it will be shut down.Any refunds due must be requested by the end of March 31st, 2014 and any funds held in your account withdrawn. Keeping the website open for a week from the last new transaction should give everyone ample time to wrap up their affairs in the site.We extend our sincerest apologies to you and everyone else who has relied on CoinPayments for over 7 months,MrData & pr0d1gyCoinPayments.net
