Sorry to hear that.

I just want to make the obvious point perhaps for any others, that you do not need to hold coins in an exchange… and should not hold them on any exchange. The only time value should be trusted with those exchanges, is when you are changing them or where you are happy to lose them in the event of third party action. Any BTC coldwallet can hold MAID.

Perhaps misread that you felt some need to move from bittrex to a new provider… but still, that might be easy mistake to make for those less familiar with options.

Also perhaps not ideal to link out to what you suggest is fishing site… deaden that link perhaps by removing the https:// at the front of the url, save others being tempted.

Be careful guys! When I have to use a new exchange I look for the right link on Coinmarketcap and I look for their official account on Twitter. Comparing the links provided on both sites can reduce the likelihood of being scammed.

Always try to enter the website through google so you don’t misspell when typing the url of the exchange

Oh no, I recommend bookmarking your preferred trading sites to avoid problems like these, spoofers are everywhere unfortunately.

Did you have your 2fa enabled? I think you need to enter 2fa before withdrawing, if I’m not misremembering.
