I had 14 BTC in my wallet since years and deposited it to another wallet, never seen transaction completed but my bitcoins are gone and they locked my account without reason.

Note; never received my 14 btc since 3 days. there is no transaction id as well. just gone gone.

Now i am trying to withdraw my 4.8 btc from my second account but its impossible. so far i lost 19 BTC imo.

There it goes! You seriously stored 14 bitcoins on an exchange ? What made you think an exchange is the most secure place to store your coins ?
What you can do : If you're from the same region as they're located,please report the incident to the local cyber police.If not,please get in touch with all the people who have lost money and submit a mass proposal to the authorities of their country of origin.

Pretty sure it's an American Company registered in Panama as they indirectly control their resources anyway.People deliberately register shady businesses in such countries where they will be easily able to get out with paying some bribes.I don't see much hopes for the OP after seeing their registration data.

About Panama, some of my own domains show Panama too, it is a common country seen when you pay for whois protection at your domain registrar.

About fraud and withdrawals, I seen people had trouble previous 1-2 days when BTG price at HitBtc was very low and at exchanges like BitTrex it was much higher, many people wanted to withdraw and sell on BitTrex but HitBtc had "technical problems", something sure was fishy and there are many scenarios that can be valid...

Anyway, today I see withdrawals work as expected, I tested with BTG for significant amounts, withdraw completed in minutes.

I hope it is all good with them and I mentioned that withdrawals are OK because sometimes problems come up just because many people panic at once and all try to withdraw at once.

they are a company that deals with millions of dollars of its customers, a company of this size should not hide unless it is an obscure company, still a few days ago I asked myself the following:

many exchange has bad customer service, ignore support tickets, but those same exchanges that are anonymous ask for our passports and other documents, this is ridiculous... the customers must be duly identified and the exchanges should not?



I hope it is all good with them and I mentioned that withdrawals are OK because sometimes problems come up just because many people panic at once and all try to withdraw at once.

OP has very serious problems


I had 14 BTC in my wallet since years and deposited it to another wallet, never seen transaction completed but my bitcoins are gone and they locked my account without reason.

I think there should be stricter rules on registration of domains and exchanges

That should be a must to implement that more strict rules with the registrations of domains and exchanges. Because most of the hackers have penetrated the walls of the trading sites and not just hitbtc, but with the other sites who has trading transactions with crypto currencies. I think there should be a more secured implementation of the account security and maybe the 2fa security activation can help us control those hacking attacks, so hopefully hitbtc can provide that type of account access of every users who registered with this trading site. If that will be done as prevention, I guess that scam of 19 btc will not be possible to happen anymore.

So it's not just individual scammers to be wary about these days. We now have exchanges perpetrating full blown scams. This is why common sense is important when transacting with anyone, even exchanges. This also explains why bitcoin is going through rough roads in the process of being recognized and accepted as a legitimate currency. For one, scams are rampant. It is extremely hard to police these transactions (ironically it's the policing part we all hate too).

The most damning challenge faced by bitcoiners is the extreme difficulty in buying or selling them SAFELY. And if ever there was a way to buy them legitimately, it takes ages.. literally forever.. to finish the transaction. So many identity verification steps and security procedures. Some could argue that a SWIFT transfer from one bank to another is faster, thus negating the need for this new form of payment method.

Back to topic. So this exchange took your 19 BTC and is giving you the silent treatment. I commented months ago on their ANN thread about my suspicions and the thread's moderator quickly defended himself. Oh well, fast forward, I now see it was all part of one big elaborate and sophisticated fraud operation.

Stop storing your coins on exchanges.

Can't stress what you're saying enough.

People these days seem to think that it's a great idea to keep their funds on an exchange even though it's probably an absolutely terrible idea. If you're storing large amounts with an exchange that has a shady past and isn't really recognized as a legit exchange that has a long running history, then you are going to get scammed eventually by one of them.

In this case, it seems to be a 18-19 BTC loss, which is a lot more than what i have in total.

NEVER store this amount of cash on exchanges. If you want to do trades, do them in blocks of 5 BTC even, so that if they do defraud you, you've still got the majority of your funds.

Actually, what do you do to lose your btc?
are you doing withdrawal and pending?
please tell me a more complete chronology of your case.

I also often experience unpleasant things there, repeatedly deposit and withdrawal some altcoin stuck for 1-2 months.
I have to withdraw all my assets to avoid the risk "that you like.

Has there been any recent news for your case?
hopefully your funds keep coming back intact and you do not grieve anymore.

The safe exchange to store BTC is Gemini who has insurance to cover losses.  Crypto holders are reporting about Exchange scams.  But since Crypto holders want to invest in Alt coins, what is the safe exchange  for transaction?  HITBTC  is not giving their whereabouts or where this exchange exists.   

When you google, wiki shows that
"HitBTC is a Europe-based cryptocurrency exchange that launched in 2014.[1] It is operated by Hit Techs Limited in Chicago.[2][3]

HIT Solution Ltd (hereinafter "The Platform" or "HitBTC") provides access to multi-currency exchange platform under the registered trademark "HitBTC" (domain name: http://www.hitbtc.com). [4] Hit Solution Limited is registered on Hong-Kong jurisdiction with the number 2510720. It was incorporated on 28March2017 and its company Type is Private company limited by shares. [5]

In early 2015, HitBTC was hacked at around the same time as BTER and Excoin. HitBTC did not disclose how many coins were stolen and commented that no user funds were affected.[6][7]

As of December 2017, HitBTC had a daily volume of over 500 million USD. [8]"
