Bitstamp new KYC. This is what it actually ment when they became “first nationally licensed BTC exchange”

I have already filled their KYC and sent them picture of my drivers license. Now that is not enough anymore. I have been their customer since 2013, but not anymore.

Dear Bitstamp,

Either deposit my money, or sent them back where they came from.
