Cryptonit USD Altcoin Exchange exchange has recently experienced a complete reborn, which turned it from a cozy run-by-one-man exchange to a robust and secure trading platform with many interesting features which are definitely worth paying attention to.

Before we jump into reviewing what Cryptonit has to offer you now, we will give some background info. has been launched back in 2012. From the very first days of its operations, Cryptonit was primarily devoted to technical aspects (especially security) and did not pay much attention to appearance of the site and that’s why many traders considered it very user-unfriendly. Cryptonit was not rushing with pushing its services to wide public and for a long time has been working on technical advances and improvements. A long period of heavy testing should pass before any technical innovation is implemented. This is the only way through which you can achieve top-notch service in a rapidly changing crypto industry.

Beginning of 2014 is operated by Cryptonit Solutions Ltd, a London based company. Cryptonit has become silver member of Bitcoin Foundation. As one of the current priority goals for new Cryptonit is to become fully compliant with regulations which are applicable to crypto currencies in the UK. To overcome complicated compliance procedure Cryptonit has partnered with Eitan Jankelewitz from London based Sheridans law firm. Eitan Jankelewitz has been on the frontier of crypto currency legal related issues in the UK and is planning to share his best experience with Cryptonit. Compliance procedure includes, but not limited to:

  • establishing direct communication with FCA and receiving an official statement from them regarding Cryptonit’s business in the UK
  • registration at HRMC as Money Service Business (MSB)
  • refining and further development of AML/KYC policies
