A financial license is issued by the financial authorities of the country and is a permit for conducting a financial business. Without this, you cannot carry out business activities. The countries with strict examination standards in the world are said to be the United Kingdom and Cyprus. The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has very strict not only license acquisition but also maintenance standards, such as having to compensate up to £ 85,000 per person in the event of a Forex trader’s bankruptcy. The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySec) is said to be the second highest screening country after the United Kingdom. So is Bitfinex licensed? At the moment, we have not confirmed the acquisition of the license. I’m a little worried.

Whether or not withdrawal is refused

It will be the most worrisome place for traders who actually trade. There is no Forex company that refuses to deposit, but I am wondering if I can really withdraw when I can make a profit. What about Bitfinex, as some companies run away at worst? The patterns of withdrawal refusals from past cases are summarized below.
