Update to our Terms of Use

In order to better reflect the services currently provided by Bitstamp and provide clearer information on certain points, we’ve updated our Terms of Use.

As part of the new Terms of Use, we have:

  • Unified the terms used to describe cryptocurrencies and aligned them with definitions used by the EU and FATF
  • Added clearer guidelines with regards to customer responsibility for tax reporting
  • Clarified our stance on supporting cryptocurrency forks
  • Added a section stating that we may prevent any action on our platform that would directly result in a price swing of over 5%
  • Included a section clarifying our stance on preventing market manipulation

All changes will come into effect on 20 August 2019 at 5 PM UTC. You can read the updated Terms of Use here.
