Bittrex is a US-based cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Seattle, Washington. The company was founded in 2013 by Bill Shihara and two business partners, all of whom previously worked as security professionals at Microsoft.[unreliable source] The exchange is the thirteenth largest cryptocurrency exchange by daily trading volume, is renowned for the vast number of cryptocurrencies it has listed, and has a good reputation for its security. Bittrex is not a regulated exchange under US securities laws.[unreliable source]
In December 2017, along with Binance and Bitfinex, Bittrex temporarily stopped new user registrations due to high demand.[unreliable source] All 3 exchanges have since then reopened for registrations.
On Friday, December 1, 2017, the Bittrex exchange requested ChronoBank provide them with a completed listing application and legal opinion from a U.S. law firm to remain listed. It appears that Bittrex is doubling back on their early listed tokens in an attempt to obtain proper documentation for the listing of tokens. However, the notice requires submission of the requested documents by December 8, 2017.[unreliable source]
On April 10, 2018 the company open registrations for new users. Commenting on the matter, Bittrex CEO Bill Shihara said: "After diligently working to improve our infrastructure and upgrade our website, we're pleased to announce registration for new users resumed today."[unreliable source] Bittrex were forced to temporarily stop new user registrations after just a couple of hours due to the high demand.
