"We applaud the thoughtful and transparent approach that Benjamin Lawsky and the NY DFS have taken in examining consumer protection issues surrounding virtual currency and related businesses. We believe this framework is important for the ecosystem to operate in a compliant and trustworthy way, and shows the DFS’ ongoing dedication to improving the stability of the industry," said itBit CEO Charles Cascarilla.

The proposed BitLicense aligns with our current standards and practices, and we have every intention to be in compliance with the final guidelines.”
Bitcoin trading involves a high degree of risk. The bitcoin market is new and unproven and may
not grow. Currently, there is relatively small use of bitcoin in the retail and commercial
marketplace in comparison to relatively large use by speculators, thus contributing to
price volatility that could adversely affect an investment in bitcoin. In order to
participate in the trading of bitcoin, you should be capable of evaluating the
merits and risks of the investment and be able to bear the economic risk of
losing your entire investment. No material at this site should be considered
as an offer by itBit to sell or solicitation by itBit of any offer to buy bitcoin.
