After operating for over 4 years in the crypto space we're officially announcing the shut down of development and operations on qTrade. We're proud of what we've accomplished during that time, supporting dozens of interesting projects, high levels of customer privacy, zero hacks, and learning a ton.
That said, as the ecosystem has been evolving we've seen fewer and fewer projects in line with the goals of the exchange, and we don't expect this to change in the near future. Additionally, ongoing compliance and operational costs are substantial and with recent current events we expect even higher compliance costs in the future.
Its time for us to move on to other projects. Thank you for allowing us to work with you over the years.
Effective December 31, 2022 we will be removing all markets and disabling deposits on our platform
Deposit transactions sent to qTrade after December 31, 2022 will not credited to your account.
Please make withdrawals by March 31, 2023.
Withdrawals will be available for at least a year, but after March 31, 2023 they may be manually processed, have substantial delays, additional identification requirements, or fees associated.
Some notes on withdrawals
- We don't yet have a final schedule & timeline for node shutdown, but we will be keeping automated withdrawals for all currencies available for at least 3 months (March 31, 2023).
- After March 31, 2023 we will offer some form of withdrawal option for at least one year
- We will be updating this announcement with additional details and timelines
We will be making a downloadable CSV report for your 2022 transactions. We're aiming to have this done mid-january
