Bittrex, one of the largest US cryptocurrecny exchange, had suspended new users registration almost 5 months ago "due to a large spike in new user sign ups".

On April 11, it tried to resume it, but due to technical issues, users were able to register only for one hour. At the same time, Bittrex introduced an updated design of its site and trading platform and also increased security level, as company notes.

Recently, Bittrex reported on the registration issue fix.

Registration is working properly for 16 hours, so we hope that there won't be any issues. Bittrex is popular with fans of altcoins. It has around 180 coins listed.

Several major exchanges decided to create a new structure designed to eradicate manipulation in the digital assets market, Bloomberg reports.

The Virtual Commodity Association was formed by the founders of the exchange Gemini Cameron and Tyler Winklewoss. According to a statement released on Monday, the group also included Bitstamp, BitFlyer USA and Bittrex. Representatives of four trading platforms will meet in September to consolidate the provisions for the future functioning of the organization.

The Virtual Goods Association will develop standards for the industry, promote transparency in the market and cooperate with regulators, including the Commodity Futures Trading Commission of the United States (CFTC), in order to prevent manipulation of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other currencies.

As the temporary executive director of the organization, Maria Filipakis, who worked in the Financial Services Department of New York, was appointed, where she took part in the creation of a BitLicense.

Earlier, the Winklewoss brothers tried to launch their own ETF, tied to bitcoin, but the US Securities and Exchange Commission denied them twice, as the reasons for its decision, among other things, calling for the absence of adequate measures to prevent cryptocurrency market manipulations.
