Users of the BitForex exchange have suspected the platform management in fraud after the platform has delisted the SyncFab (MFG) token without any explanation. This is reported by Cryptovest.

On July 18, at a recently opened BitForex exchange, trading of the own token of the SyncFab blockchain platform started. After 13 days, crypto-exchange froze trading of this coin without a warning. According to users, BitForex still retains part of the deposit funds in order to further steal tokens.

In turn, commenting on the situation, SyncFab representatives refer to vulnerabilities of unknown character in the smart contract of the token.

BitForex has a lot of tokens listed, however, not everything can be found through the search. The main page of the platform lists only coins with active trades.

Price of the MFG coin fluctuates around $ 0.0059. Token is traded on the IDEX, Cobinhood, CoinExchange, Bancor Network. In August, the leading company in the field of bitcoin-security and the provider of the popular BitGo wallet announced support for MFG.
