The company’s Chief Technology Officer Paolo Ardoino confirmed in his Twitter post that the company has successfully raised 1 billion USDT in just ten days via private sales.
«Bitfinex is able to raise 1b USDT in 10 days, in a private sale. Private companies, giants in our industry and outside, made investments for > 100m each. A legion of inside and outside users made investments for > 1m each» — Ardoino said in his tweet. Later he added a comment about Bitfinex reputation and investors trust: «Why? Because they know we are trustworthy, they recognize what we have been doing (without needing us bragging about it publicly) and they want us keep fighting for the industry whole. Their own words. Thank you, everyone, for the amazing support we got. We are impressed.»
Bitfinex CTO confirmed they received the investment in both USDT and unspecified other formats.
