My post title above is what I’ve been googling and binging for hours now but I still cannot find what I am looking for. My friends are asking for a referral code in order to create a new Bitfinex account.
So I quickly logged in to my Bitfinex account to get my referral code, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I even searched the entire FAQs page of Bitfinex but to no avail.
There are also several posts in Reddit, posting their referral codes, but I couldn’t find mine.
Finally I decided to e-mail Bitfinex support and they replied withib 24 hours saying that the referral program was discontinued and they are working on a new system to limit the number of new users using an invite code.
This is somehow similar to Replika.ai where you can only create an account via invitation and once you signed up using the invitation code you can invite 5 more users in return. With this method, they can limit a huge number of bogus users.
I don’t know what the invite limit of Bitfinex but we’ll find out pretty soon once the new invitation system is live.
