The AMF reminds the public that the cryptoasset trading platform BITGET is blacklisted

The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) is calling on retail investors to exercise the utmost vigilance with regard proposal investments made to the public residing in France by the digital asset trading platform BITGET. BITGET is not authorised to provide its digital asset services in France. The AMF reserves the right to take legal action to block the platform's website.

Under the Monetary and Financial Code, the provision of digital asset custody services on behalf of third parties, services to purchase or sell digital assets against legal tender, to trade digital assets for other digital assets and to operate a digital asset trading platform, when these are provided in France, are subject to prior mandatory registration as a digital asset service provider (DASP).

This registration makes it possible to maintain public order by ensuring that the entity is able to comply with its obligations in terms of prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing, and to verify the good repute and competence of its directors and shareholders, or even to impose specific measures to protect retail investors.

Unregistered platforms providing these services in France are illegal under French law. The BITGET digital asset trading platform is not registered as a DASP and has provided digital asset services that are subject to  mandatory registration in France. Consequently, it has been blacklisted by the AMF since 7 November 2023 for non-compliance with current French regulations.

The AMF reserves the right, under the terms of the Monetary and Financial Code, to take legal action to block the website of this platform, which is providing its services illegally in France.

In this regard, the AMF is urging French retail investors who have nevertheless invested on this platform to take all necessary measures to avoid being unable to access their assets (digital assets or digital asset derivatives). All investors must make arrangements for the eventuality that the platform suddenly cease to provide services to the public residing in France.
