I really hope not.

Still very useful for paying fees I find.

But certainly very abused.

Having said that, I would not be surprised at all to see them go.

A reminder that good things don't last forever

They made a lot of money with gamblers from non EEA countries for sure, and then that was taken away from them due to the new VISA regulations.

Let's hope that they still continue in business for those of us in the EEA

they have successful running business, closing it down would be the last thing they want, i think they close the signup because of ⊗⊗⊗⊗ signup they might want to lower down the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ signup rate before opening signup again
so lets hope for good

They have successful business because of the subscribers then why would they want to lower their user rate ?
I think because of the new VISA rule their userbase has lower significantly thus lowering revenue for the company
I think they are not able to recover their operation cost

they have
Estimated Annual Revenue
$30M
Estimated Employees
211
checked from google
apart from that even they after regulation they are best in market and they are very old company estab year 2000 they can easily run in loss for many years depending on the huge revenue so closing down doest seem the right option

We apologize, however, we are no longer accepting new registrations.
We are not able to divulge more details about this matter.
Should this change in the future, we’ll let you know.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

Why would someonw create account using proxy when you cant topup it without a credit or debit card issued in EEA

no this assumption is not correct ,i used a lot to buy crypto.

you really believe in this ? basically you can get a card with EEA address even if you are not based there. but it's require a plan if they are plastic cards .
