Bitfinex Cryptocurrency Exchange has announced the upcoming update of its system in order to improve the stability and scalability of the application matching engine.
The update starts on August 1 at 12:30 MSK and approximately takes 2-3 hours. At this time, Bitfinex and Ethfinex users will not be able to access trades and wallets transactions.
As before, in such cases, the company asks to pay attention to open margin positions in order to avoid forced liquidations after the resumption of trading. In addition, today Bitfinex announced the launch of a data channel through which users will be able to obtain information about the liquidation of marginal positions on the stock exchange in real time.
Information on liquidations is available in the left panel of the main interface of the trading platform.
