The official language of communication on Crypto News is the following languages: English, Russian, German, Spanish, and Arabic.
The main topic for communication in the community is the crypto industry, blockchain, finance, market analytics, etc.
Ignorance of community rules is not an excuse for violations committed.
The administration, represented by Crypto News employees, is entitled to make changes to the rules without prior notification to users.
Additions and rule changes are effective from the moment they are published.
The Crypto News community is predominantly post-moderated, that is, the presence of a specific post or comment in the community does not mean their compliance with the rules. Content can be checked by the administration for compliance with the rules after its publication.

Crypto News provides only a technical opportunity for users to post and share comments. In some cases, pre-publication content may be submitted for preliminary review to the moderator service. Review can take up to 1 day.
The responsibility of users for violations is determined by the Crypto News administration based on these rules, as well as guided by their own ideas about the value of a particular user to the community. Beginning to publish or comment in the community, the user puts trust in the administration in making any decisions related to the interpretation and compliance with these Crypto News rules and conditions of use.
Community members have the right to receive clarifying comments about Crypto News administration actions through submitting a support request. The Crypto News administration may, at its discretion, answer a question regarding its actions publicly in the community, but has no obligation to do so.
If you encounter a violation of rules or laws in the Crypto News community, you should not write about this publicly, but it is recommended to use the “report” feature or write to support.
