Earlier today, there was a comment on the Telegram safenetwork group by someone saying that HitBTC had told them that MAID withdrawals were being halted ‘due to a hard fork’.
Obviously this didn’t make any sense so I’ve been in touch directly with HitBTC - they’ve just confirmed that this was erroneous information shared by mistake.
tl;dr HitBTC confirmed they aren’t stopping MAID withdrawals - it was a mistake by one of their team in discussion to say so. Just wanted to share with everyone
