Once I deposited some SC coins in it and it said the wallet works ok but it took 21 days to see my SC coins in Hitbtc wallet  Grin
another thing was when I bought NXT in Hitbtc to receive Ignis airdrop , and it's been ages still haven't received any ignis!
I just try to stay away from it!

Ok I'm been using HitBtc for at least 6 months now and so far I haven't got any issues, only one though but it was resolved already. However, let me quote one user today:

Today I wanted to withdraw Bitcoin from HitBTC, it gives me the message: Because of the congestion of the exchange, your funds can get to you on your wallet for 4 weeks! If you agree, click continue! How do you like it?! 4 weeks!

I'm not sure if this is true or not, but if it is then I think I will take all my coins on that exchanges. That's too much. They just lost a lot of customers here with this kind of withdrawal protection. 4 weeks? WTF?

Hey All,

I have some btc stuck on hitbtc there is no email coming so I can withdraw my coins is hitbtc a scam I've read a few bad things about them on here. What do you guys think?

No I don't think so. Done a few trades there with zero hassle. But I'm lately worried about all these exchanges, not because I think they want to scam us. Just much safer to keep your coins with you. And yes I do understand we need them to get our hands on new coins.  Smiley Just glad you came right.

It depends on what coins you are using for trading purposes. If you stick to just Bitcoin and other top level altcoins, you are less likely going to face any sort of problems, which applies to all shitcoin exchanges. In other words, an exchange (especially when it concerns a shitcoin exchange) can be as good or shitty as you want it to be.

But I'm lately worried about all these exchanges, not because I think they want to scam us. Just much safer to keep your coins with you.
Lately? It has always been safer to keep your coins just with you instead of leaving them on exchanges. Also, you should be worried because of how they *might* scam you. Most of the times when an exchange gets hacked I very much doubt that it actually got hacked. It's far too easy as exchange operator to plan everything in the best possible way. Coincheck was not an exception. $500 million worth of crypto assets in hot wallets, hello, how obvious do people want to have it?

Yes you can try to withdraw  your coins if you are doubting the site, I also deposit some small amount of bitcoins there before and make some scalping with certain coin and earn some small amount,  I also tried to become inactive there for a weeks and tried to withdrew my coins and there's no problem, the transaction is smooth and fast.

In my opinion Hitbtc is a good platform of exchange, they have quite good reputation. Sometimes the mistake are in users side. Always you should  double check everything.

It's not a scam, but it is one of the shittiest exchanges out there. If you have an ICO and you lists your Tokens at HitBTC, you want to loose investors. I hope you can transfer your BTC finally, good luck.

they are not scam but their services are sometimes so much poor that anyone will doubt on their reputation .
happened with me many times in past where they either disabled deposits or delayed it for upto 10 days . in withdrawal too same issue with TRX and 2 other coins . when you mail them or raise a ticket reply takes much time , also twitter team reply only few posts depend on their mood .
even after being a good and advanced crypto exchange they are not concentrating on services and support .

Why would they focus on providing people support when regardless of what they put their users through, they know that people are almost forced to keep using them. Providing support is time consuming and expensive.

If they can have a very small group of people being responsible for the day to day operations, their operational cost will be extremely low. Low operational cost means more net profit every month.

The only way to make them improve their services is to stop using them until they actually start improving things. It's money they are after, which is directly the easiest way to hit (pun intended) that exchange as hard as possible.

They will only listen to you if they realize that their future income is at risk.

The issue is that many are trying to avoid Shitbtc, but their funds are held hostage.

I have pending IGNIS and some Bitcoin hardforks which are 5 months overdue. Once they release my funds, I'm getting the hell outta the exchange for good.

No way!!! 5 freaking months? that's really unacceptable, I'm already out liquidate all my coins into ETH because it says that Bitcoin withdrawal might takes month. So I don't want to take that risk although they will still display the same message, but what the heck, 4 weeks for a ETH withdrawal is not the norm because we all know that ETH network is not that clogged as Bitcoin so I go ahead and withdraw everything and get it in a few minutes so that's it for me. Plus they are really slow on my end, so bye bye HitBTC for me.
