At the end of December in 2017, the popular Bitfinex exchange has suspended registration for new accounts. The reason for this decision was an extremely high flow of users who wanted to start trading on the site. As of January 12th, the opportunity to register is open again, however, with some limitations and conditions. Before proceeding with the registration procedure, users need to read the following information.
The administration of the exchange emphasizes that Bitfinex is a global platform with a high level of liquidity, and first of all, the exchange is oriented to work with professional traders. Beginning players in the cryptocurrency market are encouraged to work on other platforms, to only then return to work with Bitfinex.
To focus on the work with the main client base, the administration created an activation option for newly registered accounts. To be able to fully trade on the exchange, users must deposit on their account an amount equivalent to $10,000. You can raise funds either with fiat money or with any cryptocurrency in which Bitfinex operates. This requirement does not apply to existing accounts.
