BlockFi pauses withdrawals
It’s been just revealed that the latest sign of fallout from the collapse of the digital asset exchange FTX, crypto lending platform BlockFi now says it has stopped allowing its customers to withdraw funds.
The company just posted a message to customers on Twitter. They said that there is a “lack of clarity” on the status of FTX, and its trading arm Alameda Research is to blame.
“We are shocked and dismayed by the news regarding FTX and Alameda. We, like the rest of the world, found out about this situation through Twitter.”
They continued and said the following:
“Given the lack of clarity on the status of FTX.com, FTX US, and Alameda, we are not able to operate business as usual.”
The platform continued and explained that their priority has been and will continue to be to protect their clients and their interests.
“Until there is further clarity, we are limiting platform activity, including pausing client withdrawals as allowed under our Terms. We will share more specifics as soon as possible. We request that clients not deposit to BlockFi Wallet or Interest Accounts at this time.”
They continued and said:
“We intend to communicate as frequently as possible going forward but anticipate that this will be less frequent than what our clients and other stakeholders are used to.”
Other than this, it’s been reported that the path toward Bitcoin recovery has been highlighted by an important analyst.
