Bitfinex will be undertaking planned infrastructure maintenance on October 4, 2018 between 06:00 AM UTC and 18:00 PM UTC. The exact timing of the maintenance update will made public 30 minutes prior to the start of the update.
Traders should expect a service interruption of roughly 2 hours while this maintenance is being performed.
During the update, all trading and financing markets will be unavailable and no deposits or withdrawals will be processed. Users will be unable to control, edit or cancel their active orders and active positions throughout the maintenance period. Users who wish to not be affected by potential price movements on other platforms once Bitfinex reopens *must* take action by cancelling orders and closing positions before the update begins.
Unfortunately we cannot give an exact time for the platform update other than the abovementioned broad parameters due to the risk of DDOS attacks, attempted market manipulation and more. We will do our utmost to communicate the precise timing to all our users in sufficient time for you to prepare your trading strategy accordingly.
To stay informed throughout the maintenance period, please refer to bitfinex.statuspage.io.
