Bitfinex Cryptocurrency Exchange has introduced a new system for fiat currencies deposits: the US dollar (USD), the British pound (GBP), the Japanese yen (JPY) and the euro (EUR). Now, the users who have completed the KYC procedure will create an application, indicating the deposit amount and currency, and the platform representatives will consider it within 48 hours.

Then, if approved, users will be sent the recipient's bank data, and the deposit itself will be credited to the account within 6-10 business days.

In this case, the minimum threshold of $ 10,000 was not abolished.

Earlier, Bitfinex had an anomalous growth of Bitcoin to the level of $ 7,788, which was associated with the possible collapse of Tether.

Nevertheless, the USDT price also stabilized, and representatives of the issuer said that the tokens were fully secured.
