According to the announcement, all Bitfinex users will be able to leverage the features, security, and performance of the exchange’s professional trading platform.
“We simply could not ignore the increasing level of requests for access to trade on Bitfinex from a wider cohort than our traditional customer base,” said Bitfinex CEO Jean-Louis van der Velde. “For the last six months, we have been working hard to ready our platform for a new wave of customer accounts and are now in a position to open Bitfinex to a wider audience. By dropping our minimum equity requirement, the only limits are now set by the traders themselves.”
At the same time, Bitfinex has added and improved several features, including:
Upgraded Support Center — redesigned for a more intuitive user experience, offering automated responses to common queries, and quicker issue resolution.
New KYC Portal — updated infrastructure to enable the implementation of third party tools making the process more frictionless in the near future.
Santiment Token Information — provides education on every token on the platform to help inform customers.
