Venezuela-based bitcoin exchange Surbitcoin resumes operations

Investing | July 26, 2016 By:

Surbitcoin announced it has resumed regular operations, following a temporary freeze of one of its fiat accounts.

The company had run into some troubles with its banker, Banesco Bank after the latter froze its business account earlier this month. The loss of banking access had forced the bitcoin exchange to temporarily halt fiat operations on the platform.

“Thanks to the help of Banesco‚Äôs Security Department we found the shady actor who caused the fiat gateway outage. We will pursue legal actions against this individual, and we thank our customers for their patience.,” said Surbitcoin.

SurBitcoin is a bitcoin exchange operated by BlinkTrade in Venezuela.
