Following Cointelegraph’s coverage yesterday, Bittrex finally made a public statement about the thousands of accounts they’ve disabled. According to Bittrex’s website:
“We occasionally conduct compliance reviews and are working vigilantly to protect our service and our users from harm. As part of a compliance review, we have temporarily suspended certain accounts pending the completion of the review. The total number of suspended, closed, or banned accounts is very limited: less than 0.1% of the total accounts on Bittrex. More than 99.9% of Bittrex accounts are unaffected.”
Of course, everybody realizes that the vast majority of Bittrex’s accounts are working just fine. The problem is that thousands of accounts–the 0.1 percent–were (and still are) disabled.
