Invitation code to BitFinex?
We sorry for bringing bad news to you. BitFinex shutted down registrations. When registering, you have to enter the code, but no one knows how to get it.
There is an official message on the registration page:
“Thank you for your interest in opening a Bitfinex account. However, due to extraordinary demand, new account creation has been temporarily paused.
Bitfinex focuses on serving professional traders. The reason we have decided to temporarily stop accepting new accounts is that we cannot undermine the quality of our services for our existing traders by flooding the system with new, small accounts.
Please be patient while we expand infrastructure, services, and staff to meet the exponential rise in demand for new Bitfinex accounts.
This pause for new account creation is a temporary measure. New account registration will resume by January 15th, 2018 at the latest.”
People say they tried giving invitation code to a friends, but it didn’t work for them. When You look closely at bitfinex.com/representatives page, it also indicated that code is “disabled for new signups”. Do BitFinex creators realize that they have opened a gate for competition that only waited for it? Crazy...
But let’s talk to reason. Registration blocking can mean many things and it is easy to get carried away by negativity but what if they do it in order to be protected from fake accounts and DDOS. There is no doubt – they are one of the biggest players and assuring security would be a better investment in the future instead of just accepting new traders to earn more money short term. However, the lack of contact with users is a step back.
Comments on Reddit
“Users of the Reddit forum immediately reacted very strongly to the notification about registrations suspension. It’s hard to be surprised, because BitFinex did not publish any statement!
There are no invitation codes. Bitfinex is probably trying to halt all new registrations without publicly saying as much. Given the other dodgy things of late (warrant canaries, withdrawal minimums), it might just be that they’re about to get shuttered. “
“I’m sorry for bringing bad news to you guys. They’ve shutted down registrations – even with invitation codes. All of them are “expired or invalid” merely. Solution? IGNORE Bitfinex and it’s problems!”
