The Russian government reportedly blacklisted OKX’s IP address on Wednesday for possible illegal activity related to a violation of Article 15.3 of Russia’s information law, reports said.
According to Roskomnadzor, Russia’s internet censorship regulator, the Seychelles-registered cryptocurrency exchange disclosed information associated with “financial pyramid activities.”
Roskomnadzor noted that the information includes details on the “provision of financial services by persons” who are not authorized to do so under federal law.
Article 15.3 safeguards against, among other things, the dissemination of false information, threats to financial institutions, and appeals for extremist behavior.
No specific cause for the website block has been made public as of this writing.
