According to data published on the official website, the Exmo cryptocurrency exchange increased the number of users from Belarus.

“The analytical department of the cryptocurrency platform EXMO notes a sixfold increase in user registrations from the Republic of Belarus in December compared with the previous month.”

Such changes may be related to the fact that at the end of November 2018 Binance exchange notified users about the termination of service due to changes in the terms of use (ToU) for customers from Belarus. All users were encouraged to withdraw funds from the exchange.

Earlier, Binance also imposed similar restrictions on Iranian residents due to U.S. sanctions.
