Bittrex will be swapping from the OMNI-based implementation of USDT to the ERC20-based implementation of USDT on the Ethereum network to bring our users quicker, cheaper, and more inter-operable transfers. Deposits and withdrawals will be suspended temporarily for a few hours as we swap user balances on August 5, 2019. After the swap is complete, withdrawal fees will be lowered to 1 USDT and users will need to regenerate new deposit addresses on the Ethereum blockchain.
Users' USDT Bittrex exchange balance totals will reflect the same total that they had prior to the swap in a 1:1 manner. Once the swap is complete, all USDT from Omni network addresses can no longer be sent to Bittrex, and USDT from Bittrex accounts cannot be sent to Omni network addresses. If you wish to preserve your USDT on the Omni network, please withdraw your tokens before the swap.
Note: Please regenerate and use new USDT deposit addresses after the swap. All OMNI-based USDT sent to Bittrex after the swap will not be recovered.
Bittrex will re-enable the USDT wallet when we and the Tether team agree the migration is satisfactory.
Note: USDT wallets will be closed for deposits and withdrawals at 10:00 AM PST on August 5, 2019 (5:00 PM UTC on August 5, 2019). If any USDT deposits you had sent to Bittrex are not settled by then (marked as pending), you may not be credited with USDT.
Trading on all USDT-based markets will continue as normal during this time.
We would like to thank the Tether team for working closely with us.
