“This morning, following the re-opening, we were notified of a deed by the court of Florence requesting the immediate closure of BitGrail and this situation will persist until a decision is made by the courts, about the precautionary suspension request made by the Bonelli law office on behalf of a client.

The decision is scheduled for May 16, 2018.

Even though we don’t agree with this decision, we are obliged to respect the law and to suspend any BitGrail business immediately.”
