A lot of money is flowing into the digital currency market, and certain exchanges such as Bitfinex, Bittrex and Coinbase are having a hard time keeping up with all the orders.
Bitfinex has quickly implemented deposit fees for deposits under $1,000, and withdrawal minimums of $250 or more. They've also increased the confirmations required for deposits, for example, Dash deposits now require 9 confirmations instead of 6, and sometimes even when the 9 confirmations are reached, the funds are still not available. Withdrawals can now take 24 hours to process - a long time to sit and sweat wondering if your money will ever come out.
Perhaps these are just symptoms of a market expanding, with infrastructure not fit to deal with increasing demand. However, it's possible that they're indications of greater problems. When it comes to money, it doesn't hurt to be careful.
