Bitfinex stopped USD deposits until further notice

posted about 1 year ago
Today Bitfinex published new announcement regarding deposits in USD:

"This announcement is further to our announcement about withdrawal delays on April 13, 2017.

Beginning April 18, 2017, all incoming wires to Bitfinex will be blocked and refused by our Taiwan banks. This applies to all fiat currencies at the present time. Accordingly, we ask customers to avoid sending incoming wires to us until further notice, effective immediately.

We continue to work on alternative solutions for customers that wish to either deposit or withdraw in fiat, and are making progress in this regard. We will continue to update our customers as and when we have more information to share."

It is worth to mention that earlier this month Wells Fargo bank blocked $180M of iFinex (Bitfinex) and Tether customers.
