Crypto custodian BitGo agreed to pay $93,830 in a settlement pact with the U.S. Treasury Department over 183 “apparent violations” of multiple sanctions programs.

  • Because of deficiencies related to the company’s compliance procedures, BitGo failed to prevent persons in the Crimea region of Ukraine, Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria from using its non-custodial wallet service, the Treasury Department said in announcing the settlement.

  • The maximum civil monetary penalty was $53,051,675, the department said.

  • Last week, it was reported that talks regarding a possible acquisition of BitGo by PayPal had fallen through.
