Coin Cafe Fined by New York for Undisclosed Bitcoin Fees


Coin Cafe, a Bitcoin exchange based in New York, has been fined $50,000 by the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) for failing to disclose its fees to customers. The NYDFS found that Coin Cafe had been charging customers undisclosed fees for Bitcoin transactions, violating New York’s BitLicense regulations.

Undisclosed Fees

According to the NYDFS, Coin Cafe had been charging customers fees for Bitcoin transactions that were not disclosed on its website or in any other materials provided to customers. The fees were reportedly added to the price of Bitcoin at the time of purchase, resulting in customers paying more than they expected.

NYDFS Investigation

The NYDFS launched an investigation into Coin Cafe after receiving a complaint from a customer who had been charged an undisclosed fee. During the investigation, the NYDFS found that Coin Cafe had been charging undisclosed fees to all of its customers.

In addition to the $50,000 fine, Coin Cafe has been ordered to provide refunds to all customers who were charged undisclosed fees. The company has also been ordered to implement new policies and procedures to ensure that all fees are disclosed to customers in the future.


The NYDFS has made it clear that it will not tolerate Bitcoin exchanges that fail to disclose their fees to customers. Coin Cafe’s failure to disclose its fees has resulted in a significant penalty and serves as a warning to other Bitcoin exchanges to ensure that they are transparent with their customers about all fees associated with Bitcoin transactions.
