Cryptocurrency companies that operate in, or serve customers who are based in, New York State had until 8th August to apply for a BitLicense.

Established by the New York State Department of Financial ServicesĀ (NYDFS), and now in effect, the BitLicense is a custom-made regulatory framework for bitcoin and digital currency businesses.

CoinDesk is keeping track of both the companies that apply for a BitLicense and those that decide to cease operating in the state.

Use the buttons below to switch between (a) a table showing companies that have applied for the BitLicense and (b) a table showing those who have decided to cease operations in New York.

The companies are orderedĀ from those who announced their intentions most recently to those who revealed their plans longest ago. Hover over the bitcoin signs to learn when the companies made their intentions known.

We will keep updating the table as news of company applications or departures come to light.
