Bitmarket, the second largest cryptocurrency exchange in Poland, suddenly shut down

Bitmarket, Poland's second-largest cryptocurrency exchange, announced its closure without warning. On July 8, Bitmarket posted a short message on its website, "We regret to inform you that since July 8, 2019, due to lack of market liquidity, Bitmarket. pl/net was forced to stop. Business. We will inform you of further actions.” It is not clear what caused the “missing liquidity”, but a post on Reddit suggests that the exchange has been showing strange behavior for several weeks before the close. . One person named OdoBanks wrote to the user that the “danger signal” included the user being forced to change the password without explanation and the suspension of the withdrawal due to unusual extra KYC procedures. The report said that the company also did not respond to allegations of hacking.
