One of the oldest cryptocurrency exchanges says it is also migrating the clients accounts from Bitstamp Limited to Bitstamp Europe SA.

"Once this process is finished, your account will be subject to Bitstamp Europe SA’s Terms of Use and our updated Privacy Policy. For more details, please review the full documents," the exchange said in the email.

Bitstamp's decision to leave London comes after the US-based cryptocurrency exchange Gemini received an approval from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Trustnodes claims the reason is in "the increasing chance of a no deal Brexit with EU’s negotiator Michel Barnier."

Barnier previously expressed an opinion that "an agreement between the UK and EU seems unlikely."
