The upcoming weekend Vietnam is celebrating the 78th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence (Ngày Quốc Khánh).

With the end of World War Two in the Pacific theatre just a few weeks prior and the following retreat of the Japanese administration in Indochina (1941 to 1945), the opportunity arose for Vietnam to return to the status of a sovereign nation for the first time in over a century.

While the struggle for self-determination of the Vietnamese people was far from over in 1945, the Declaration of Independence on the 2nd of September 1945 was a significant milestone in the long path towards a free and self-governing nation.

So if you’re based in Vietnam, enjoy the long weekend and commemorate the events and sacrifices the forefathers of this land made which allowed Vietnam to remain an independent sovereign up until today.

Now – how are YOU affected as one of our revered BitcoinVN clients?

The good news: Our team and service is still operational throughout the holidays.

The bad news: A few of our services may exhibit a slightly diminished performance pace compared to your accustomed experience.

Banking holidays

The official holidays are from 01/09 to 04/09 – which means that the Friday before and the Monday after the weekend are banking holidays as well.

While we will still be able to perform bank transfers via the national fast transfer system (NAPAS) throughout the holidays, any interbank wire which does not make use of NAPAS might be delayed until Tuesday.

So please make sure to pick the fast transfer option if you have the choice 🙂
