Also,31 March 2023 has been announced as the deadline by the exchange firm Bitfront to clear all the deposits and withdrawals of investors. This year has been exceptionally challenging for the crypto market, thus, pushing Bitfront to close down.

Events In The Lifetime Of Bitfront
Founded in February 2020, its aim was to store digital assets safely and enable free transactions. In less than 3 years, Bitfront’s performance has been dropping drastically.
The entire crypto market has faced a very tough year with the collapse of major cryptocurrencies. It started with the failure of the Terra sisters in the month of May. The collapse of Terra drained a lot of wealth from the market, forcing many firms to file for bankruptcy. After this, came the crumble of Three Capital Arrows. Lately to shake the cryptoverse is Sam Bankman-Fried’s multi-million dollar FTX. It filed for bankruptcy in the United States on 11 November 2022.
The Suspension Of Services
Bitfront has already suspended credit card services and new sign-ups from November 28. It will be further suspending additional payments and deposits by December 12. While interest for deposits will be paid from 5 to 11 December. Also, the additional forced withdrawal of interests and deposits of LN/LN products will be done by December 13. The ability to make withdrawals will be put to a stop on 31 March 2023.
Bitfront expressed gratitude and issued an apology to customers who used their services and had a voice in developing the platform.
