Bitcoin fans learned that one of the virtual currency’s major exchanges will enforce customer verification checks from Thursday, two days after U.S. authorities revealed they had shut down a rival digital money transfer company.
Mt. Gox, the world’s biggest Bitcoin exchange, announced on Thursday it had altered its code of conduct, meaning now users must now verify themselves to perform any currency deposits or withdrawals.
“Beginning May 30, 2013, all Mt. Gox user accounts are required to be verified, in order to perform any currency deposits and withdrawals,” said Tokyo-based Mt. Gox, in a press release on its website.
