Today the Hong Kong crypto currency exchange Bitfinex using Twitter is advised to temporarily disable trading platform for all users because of the significant surge of CryptoRandom. It was initially reported that the platform was not available, only “some users” without specifying any reasons. After half an hour Bitfinex representatives explained that the site turned off for everyone, the previous message argued “improper wording”. That looked like an official tweet from the exchange.
We apologize for the previous tweet. In an effort to quickly inform the user about the problem, we correctly picked the wording. Now we confirm that Bitfinex is disabled for all users. You can be sure that the funds are safe. We will keep you updated.
We apologise for our previous tweet. In the rush to make users aware of our issue promptly, we were poor in the choice of wording. We can confirm Bitfinex is offline to all users. Please be assured that funds are safe. We will communicate here with further updates
