Bitfinex will be performing a system upgrade on Monday, September 2nd designed to enhance the stability and scalability of the iFinex infrastructure and new trading products.
The upgrade is set to commence at 8:30AM UTC and services will be offline for about two or three hours. Please note that this is a rough estimate and the precise time may change slightly based on market movements.
The platform upgrade will require taking all iFinex trading platforms offline for the duration of the maintenance period. This means that traders across both Bitfinex and Ethfinex will be unable to trade, view or obtain access to their wallets during the update.
We kindly ask all our traders to plan ahead accordingly and make the necessary account adjustments prior to the start of the platform upgrade.
What this means for traders
Traders on Bitfinex will not be required to take any action:
For more information on the day of the upgrade, please refer to the Bitfinex status page and Twitter account for official progress. We will let our users know five minutes before the platform reopens. Trading will start ten minutes after the platform is accessible again.
We appreciate your patience during the system upgrade and look forward to presenting you with an improved trading experience.
