    Hello everyone.
    Another day in the life and i woke up again super pissed of with Bittrex and i was feeling the need to put this online. Maybe they will reply to me after they see bad news spreading around.

    So it all begins like 8-10 days before. I was reading some news about Siacoin and i went to buy 1k worth of it. After i press the button to buy i get a message that my account is locked.
    Ok for now nothing to worry about as support will fix this i say to myself.

    I send a support request to them and i wait 2 days with no reply.
    Then i send again and i get a response saying that because my account has over a certain amount of money they need some more verification documents. Obviously i have everything ready for these situations and i sent them right after 5 minutes.

    1 day passed...2 days passed...3 days passed...Nothing. I send a new support request and i get a message that my older request is merged with the new one. But nothing as a reply...

    No need to say that i can do NOTHING on my account. My money are stack in multiple cryptos and i can't event sell-buy or withdraw my cash.

    I sent a request yesterday again and now i didn't even got the merged request automatic message.

    I dont feel safe at all keeping my money there and as long as this gets resolved hopefully soon i will withdraw everything faster than the speed of light.

    Anyone had same experience before?
    Any recomended websites other than poloniex to use as a second exchanger?

    Thanks everyone for listening to my story and your input is highly appreciated.

    That is the problems with exchanges they can steal your money at any time. Here's the truth: it's happened before and it will probably happen again.

    So keep that in mind when you are on Bittrex or other exchanges.

    It's not that i am afraid to lose my money or something. It is just pissing me off being one of the biggest exchangers and support being so bad. We don't talk about 1-2 days we talk about almost a week

    Companies like this needed to abused more in public. It is very very sad for this revolutionary technology. So go ahead and send them a review they deserve on all major platforms they exist on and let people hear about your experience and to be careful and never work with such low-lifes.

    Cryptos offer the ability to keep a bank account in another currency. So if your govt is killing u with inflation, you dont die. Also as we all know how lobby groups buy govts and suck the blood out of the populations.

    Now the end game is approaching, because the internet belongs to them. A few new protocol updates and fun time is over, back to the quarries and the cotton fields!

    Dont trust them and dont keep balance on exchanges or other online wallets, Trust on your desktop wallet, some how.
