According to them, this decision is caused by accidental deletion of the signature key of the app. The developers assured the users that this measure is forced, and promised to fix the errors soon, releasing the corresponding update for this Android-application.

ACINQ has already removed the Eclair app from the Google Play and the link to the installation file from the Github.

The release of the mobile purse Eclair with support for Lightning Network was held on April 4.

Binance in partnership with BAM Trading Services will open the US division called Binance US.

Note that BAM Trading, which will act as the site operator, is registered with FinCEN as a money transfer operator, however, it operates only in the territory of California.

We are excited to finally launch Binance.US and bring the security, speed, and liquidity of Binance.com to North America. Binance.US will be led by our local partner BAM and will serve the U.S. market in full regulatory compliance.

CEO, Binance

BAM Trading involves the mechanisms of the match and the principles of working with wallets that are implemented on the parent platform.

It is worth adding that FinCEN did not verify the information provided by BAM Trading, and the fact of registration is not a recommendation, confirmation of legality (activity) or direct support of a business by a government department.

From September 12, the parent platform Binance.com will stop serving American users.

At the same time, the exchange will no longer serve users who violate the provisions of the Terms of Use: they will retain access to their wallets with funds, but will not be able to trade.
