Ethfinex sent 50% of fees collected to the Nectar vault contract: 475.4 ETH

Reminder: Downtime Scheduled for 10.00AM UTC (07.01.19) January 07, 2019

One hour from now, at approximately 10:00 AM UTC, Bitfinex will be performing a data migration to dedicated bare-metal servers improving speed and performance.

Both Bitfinex and Ethfinex will be down for up to 7 hours to complete the migration. Account holders will not be able to access their wallets, and all features across both platforms will be offline for the duration of the upgrade.

What this means for you:

  • All funds will remain safe and unaffected throughout the entirety of the migration and will not be at risk at any point throughout the update. No orders will be executed during downtime. All open orders will be kept (regardless of price movements) and resume once the platform is back online.
  • Users will not be liquidated during downtime. However, traders should be aware that if the price moves significantly during this time, they are at risk of liquidation as soon as the platform is reopened and should therefore take necessary precautions.

For more information regarding the update, please see our blog post and refer to the following FAQ. We will be providing further announcements in the run up to the upgrade, so please keep following:

We look forward to providing all our users with an increasingly high-quality trading experience.

Best,

The Bitfinex team
