Mailchimp appears to have suspended the accounts of several crypto-related firms, according to the affected outlets.

Crypto firms on the chopping board include intelligence platform Messari. Founder Ryan Selkis posted on Twitter revealing the suspension and expressing his disappointment. Media outlet Decrypt also reported the news.

Crypto wallet provider Edge, NFT artist Ocarina, and Jesse Friedland – the founder of NFT collection Cryptoon Goonz – are among prominent names that appear to have had their accounts suspended in the last several weeks, according to the Decrypt report.

Friedland reportedly received an email from Mailchimp regarding the suspension that said "We cannot allow businesses involved in the sale, transaction, trading, exchange, storage, marketing, or production of cryptocurrencies, virtual currencies and any digital assets."

The firm is owned by tax software creator Intuit (INTU), which had not responded to CoinDesk's request for comment by press time.
