BitForex Suspends Withdrawals Without Providing a Reason, Users Unable Access to Platform


In response to a sizable withdrawal of money from its hot wallets, the exchange has suspended user withdrawals.

  • ZachXBT, a cybersecurity expert, has expressed concern regarding BitForex, a cryptocurrency exchange.
  • Over the past week, there have been notable withdrawals from the exchange.
  • Jason Luo, the CEO of BitForex, left the exchange earlier this year.

Because the cryptocurrency market is pseudonymous, it is frequently vulnerable to threats and is used by dishonest actors to defraud gullible investors through a variety of hacks and scams.

Beyond the threats from the outside, the industry is also beset by illegal internal activities such as exit scams, in which projects or businesses fool investors into believing they are trustworthy before suddenly dissipating, leaving them to deal with substantial losses.

The cryptocurrency exchange BitForex is currently in the news since it may have vanished from its users’ lives.

Fears About the BitForex Scam

Blockchain cybersecurity ZachXBT warned the cryptocurrency community on Monday, February 26, about unusual activity on BitForex and raised the possibility of a rugpull scam.


The exchange allegedly stopped allowing asset withdrawals on its platforms on February 23 in response to a startling $56.5 million withdrawal from its hot wallets, which marked the beginning of the unusual activity.

Users’ concerns were heightened when Bitforex’s official website stopped working and prevented access. Furthermore, many user complaints remain unanswered on a number of the exchange’s official communication channels, including Telegram and X, which have gone silent.

The events transpire after Jason Lou, the former CEO of BitForex, left the exchange in January without providing an explanation. Users have since taken to social media platform X to air their grievances, fueling speculation of a well-planned scam due to the timing of both events and the lack of transparency from the exchange.

BitForex Fraud: People Want Answers

Nearly 170 users have bombarded the exchange with inquiries regarding its whereabouts and requests for access to their assets and wallets since January 24.

Before the exchange was shut down, the prices of a number of popular tokens dropped by roughly 60% to 80%, as noted by X user Alxchivas. According to Alxchivas, this was probably done to “attract more money,” entice investors to make a cheaper purchase before the company went dark.

If the exchange disappears, users have advised reporting a legal loss to regulatory bodies. As of the time of publication, neither BitForex nor its executives had released an official statement.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
