I use bybit for trading. Today all of a sudden without any explanation they have "temporarily frozen" my assets for "suspicious activity". They asked me to reply to their email which never arrived. I have contacted their support and the estimated wait time is 5-7 days just to hear their reply.
I can prove funding the account as I funded the majority from my cold BTC wallet.
After a quick search it seems like many people are having this problem with bybit and some are complaining bybit doesn't reply for months.
I will keep this thread updated.
I will greatly appreciate the support of the community.
 
- Are you KYC verified?
- Are you from a banned country?
- Do you live in a banned country?
- Have you recently traveled to a banned country?
- Are you using VPN, proxies, etc?
- How old is your account?

probably have to do kyc and keep msg/emailing them so they know you are serious
 
That is the worst part about using a centralized exchange. I hope you get your account back. Keep trying, and do not lose hope. I was thinking of opening an account with them since someone shared a similar experience with Binance, but I think all the exchanges are like this.

Yes I'm KYC verified. Therefore not from a country banned on bybit. About a year old account. No VPNs no proxies. 70% of the coins were funded in a single transaction from my cold BTC wallet

I think the best bet would try to use some social media accounts with large following to make this public. However, I only have a 200k Instagram account. Would be better if it was Reddit or twitter
 
I know that Bybit only blocks accounts if they have a court order, you are in a blocked country or it can be clearly proven that the money comes from illegal business (fraud/drug...) AND if you create a Referral Link with first account and use it with your secound acount.
 
keep contacting their support. only they can help you

My money are not coming from any illegal activity. Check internet there are many stories about bybit. They have not blocked my account, they have "temporarily frozen" the withdrawals. My money are not coming from any illegal activities.

I will be. Seems like I will just have to create new tickets everyday...
 
This should be a lesson for all BHW members to stay away from exchanges and keep large deposits there.
 
I like bybit more than binance but to tell the truth all of them are just trash they just need more money and *uck their customers for that
 
I think you shouldn't trust cryptocurrency exchanges. They're like PayPal. One suspicion and your money is god knows where and god knows for how long.

Easy it feels to trust a 3rd party. Hard it is to pay for sins.

Its a huge issue, these CEXs can basically hold your funds hostage without any further explanation by saying “suspicious activity“. That’s the problem with centralized entities, use P2P to prevent issues in the future.

I can confirm by my own experience that Bybit is having lots of issues lately.
 
After I left them a negative review on trustpilot and included my UID they have started replying faster. After some time they have replied that the reason was that some guy has mistakenly reported me as scam on a p2p trade. Finally, they have unblocked my balance and I was able to withdraw it all.
