The crypto community is discussing rumors about Bybit's bankruptcy

The analytical platform Arkham Intelligence erroneously showed a sharp drop in the assets of the Bybit cryptocurrency exchange. The crypto community immediately sounded the alarm.

A graphics error on the Arkham website sparked rumors of Bybit's insolvency. Representatives of the trading platform denied all this.

Stop panicking

Initially fueled the rumors alarming schedule a sharp drop in user balances on Bybit. The quickly spreading news led to a significant outflow of funds from the crypto exchange. According to estimates from DefiLlama co-founder 0xngmi on X (formerly Twitter), users withdrawn more than $50 million.

However, according to the expert, such an outflow is still insignificant compared to the total assets under management by Bybit.

The marketplace said the rumors were baseless and were being spread by individuals who disagree with the strict compliance measures the platform promotes.

“We were surprised when we suddenly received requests for comment. Bybit operates stably, and all user assets are completely safe,” said a Bybit representative.

The trading platform team also urged all its clients to trust only information that comes directly from Bybit. The crypto platform publishes every month reserve confirmation reports. They can be found on the company's official website.

Other reputable analytics platforms such as Nansen and DefiLlama show that Bybit's reserves are now healthy. The site manages more than $9 billion.

After the collapse of FTX and the bankruptcy of Celsius, the crypto community reacts sharply to any news or rumors regarding the insolvency of a particular crypto exchange. For the peace of mind of users, trading platforms have begun publishing reserve confirmation reports, which show how secure clients' assets are.

In December 2023, similar concerns arose regarding MEXC. The CEO of the crypto exchange suddenly deleted his account in X, which provoked rumors about the bankruptcy of the site. Representatives of the crypto platform had to write a huge post explaining the situation.
