Matcha Blocks All Transactions From Russian IP Addresses

Decentralized exchange aggregator Matcha blocked the ability to make any transactions for all users with Russian IP addresses.

The aggregator’s initial message was: “Russia Trading Unsupported.” But a little later it was changed to: “region not supported”.

Perhaps this message can now be seen not only by traders from Russia but also from Belarus and China, using the services of Russian providers. Unfortunately, this limitation can be bypassed with a VPN.

After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, governments of many countries, as well as individual business representatives, including representatives of the cryptocurrency community, began to impose sanctions that isolate Russia from the rest of the world and all possible financial systems.

AWS, Google Cloud, Meta joined the global anti-Russian sanctions. The world-famous banks JPMorgan and Goldman Sach closed their business in Russia. And the software development companies Avast, ESET and Norton not only stopped technical support for users from the Russian Federation but also closed the sale of new products in this territory.

The BTC-Alpha team together with trusted volunteer communities created a charity fund ‘Alpha for Ukraine’. You can make a donation to help everyone in Ukraine who needs medicines, humanitarian aid and to support the defence of the country.
