Thank you very much for your answers! Please continue reporting you experience - we need more opinions to create the complete picture of HitBTC credit.
If we collected enough negative experience of trustworthy users of this forum and we were sure that HitBTC is a scam, I would recommend to remove it from maidsafe.net.
While knowing it is impossible to forbid it, maybe it would be better to leave their logo on maidsafe.net websites and put there something similar to the printscreen.
The second step is to ask again the coinmarketcap.com not to count the HitBTC part into MAID volume and price… Even better would be complete removal of HitBTC from coinmarketcap.com, but I really doubt its possible.
