From January 1, 2020, new rules come into force in Germany that make the work of a company in the country impossible. This Thursday BitPay updated the record that lists countries that the company will not serve. Now the record says:

“Currently, BitPay cannot serve merchants or users from the following countries: Algeria, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Cambodia, Ecuador, Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco, Nepal and Vietnam.”

BitPay spokesman Jan Jahosky said that the regulation, which will take effect in 2020, was the main reason the company decided to stop providing services in Germany. At the same time, Yakhoski noted that BitPay hopes to return to Germany in the future:

“Germany has publicly stated that cryptocurrency companies must obtain a license to work from 2020 onwards. We have suspended work in Germany, and so far we are assessing the requirements and the expediency of obtaining German licenses. ”

It is expected that the new rules will negatively affect the business associated with cryptocurrency payments. Thus, the Computer Base news publication announced that it would no longer offer Bitcoin as a payment method, which was a direct result of the suspension of BitPay payment services in Germany.
