If you want to register on the BitFinex exchange, you unfortunately need to enter the invitation code. The problem is that nobody knows where to get this code and there are some doubts, does it really exist?
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.”
You do not need a invitation code!
The truth is sad, because many sources indicate that it is currently impossible to register on this Exchange. The good news is that you do not need a code and you do not have to sign up there. Yes, exactly, there are simply better places to buy coins. The problem is that Bitfinex hasn’t released any information about registration on the Exchange. The last Tweet is from December 17 and is for the DDOS attack.
Similar to BitFinex?
Now when registering, you have to enter the code, but no one knows how to get it. People say they tried giving invitation code to a friends, but it didn’t work for them. Do BitFinex creators realize that they have opened a gate for competition that only waited for it? You do not have to register there, there are many similar exchanges with a good reputation.
Maybe the problem is that Bitfinex is currently fighting DDoS attacks as well as a high user rush. Users around the world seem to have caught the fever around Bitcoin, Ethereum, IOTA, Litecoin and Co. Prices are rising because, among other things, many people invest and drive up the price.
Fake bitfinex official accounts on Reddit
Meanwhile, on Reddit appeared an interesting topic warning against cheaters. It’s worth reading:
“Watch out for this. I bet these 9 fake accounts are from the same guy who created bitfinexscam.com. He probably blamed bitfinex for somthing he did himself, like sending btc to the wrong addres. Up to raise awareness so this gets resolved asap.”
“None. Hundreds and hundreds of requests all over Twitter and Reddit for an invitation code, but not one (legit) offer to help a new user obtain one. Bitfinex themselves have not pointed the direction to obtaining an invitation code.”
“Hello fellow, unfortunately bitfinex no longer works even with the codes, I’m trying to sign up. for the moment “
Where to buy IOTA, BTC or TRX now?
Currently, the Bitfinex platform is particularly popular because it allows the exchange of ethers (the currency in the Ethereum network) in IOTA. But Bitfinex is not the only platform that has at least one trading pair with IOTA.
So far, there is no public indication that any new user has successfully registered since the exchange started requiring registration codes. The Exchange Platform has already posted information about the suspension of new registrations. It turned out that the problem with the code was a mistake.
Huge price surges in both Bitcoin and altcoin markets have seen a second influx of mainstream consumers into the cryptocurrency space after the phenomenon first occurred earlier this year. Undoubtedly, the popularity of cryptocurrency has caused all exchanges to have technical problems. Bitfinex was advertising for staff as of Dec. 15th, calling for help to “create the most innovative & industry-leading cryptocurrency exchange.”
According to their Twitter, Bitfinex is also currently also contending with an extensive DDoS attack on its servers. Also last week, the exchange warned users of a coordinated telephone scam duping consumers into handing over account information.
