BTC-e was a cryptocurrency trading platform until the U.S. government seized their website. It was founded in July 2011 and as of February 2015 handled around 3% of all Bitcoin exchange volume. Until the 25th of July 2017, it allowed trading between the U. S. dollar, Russian ruble and euro currencies, and the Bitcoin, Litecoin, Namecoin, Novacoin, Peercoin, Dash and Ethereum cryptocurrencies.

It was a component of the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index since the index started in September 2013.

BTC-e was operated by ALWAYS EFFICIENT LLP which is registered in London and is listed as having 2 officers: Sandra Gina Esparon and Evaline Sophie Joubert and two people with significant control: Alexander Buyanov and Andrii Shvets.

The US Justice Dept attempted to close down BTC-e on the 26th of July 2017 when they charged Alexander Vinnik and BTC-e in a 21-count indictment for operating an alleged international money laundering scheme and allegedly laundering funds from the hack of Mt. Gox.
