Roskomnadzor partially blocked the BitcoinTalk cryptocurrency forum

At the request of the Federal Tax Service of December 2017, Roskomnadzor blocked access to one of the pages of the BitcoinTalk forum. Some users reported access issues to the entire resource.

Since March 25, one of the pages of the popular cryptocurrency forum BitcoinTalk has been included in the block list, while many providers traditionally block the entire resource. Roskomnadzor blocked access at the request of the Federal Tax Service dated December 21, 2017. The reason for the blockage was the topic on the BitcoinTalk forum about online casinos, created in September 2016.

Earlier, one of the pages of the Bits.media forum was blacklisted at the request of the Federal Tax Service, also dated December 2017 – four days later than a similar request regarding BitcoinTalk. The reason for blocking the Bits.media forum page was also the topic of online casinos, created in 2016. The topic has already been deleted from the forum and now a dialogue is ongoing with Roskomnadzor on removing entries from the registry. However, for most users, the forum remains accessible.

 

At the beginning of this month, it became known about the next round of blocking cryptocurrency sites. Access to five sites was prohibited by decision of the Nyandomsky district court of the Arkhangelsk region.

Recall that the history of blocking cryptocurrency sites in Russia dates back to 2015. At the same time, the first court on unlawful blocking was won with the participation of Bits.media. In 2016-2017, access to several popular exchanges was banned, and last year they were blocked
several news sites about cryptocurrencies and monitoring of Bestchange exchangers, which also managed to achieve the cancellation of the court decision.
