Dear participants of the BTC-e.com exchange!
Attention everyone who sends us U.S. dollars and trying to withdrawal in U.S. dollars through Bank transfer
From tightened for a new American policy correspondence banks in relation to payment institutions deposits and withdrawals of U.S. dollars delayed for 1-2 weeks.
Fortunately, they are alternative e-currency payment service providers. You can use them to avoid this delay. Just buy e-currencies and exchange them to Bitcoin.
Please note that this is due to U.S. banks policies (they try to discourage not only U.S. citizens, but all other users of their currency to buy/sell Bitcoin).
