It is worth pointing out that those users that don’t withdraw the funds before the date and time specified will be subject to Bitfinex’s Delisted Token Recovery Policy.
The company wrote about it:
“A recovery fee may be applied, and token recovery can be attempted only up to two months following the closure of the withdrawal.”
Cryptocurrency exchanges tend to regularly check for altcoins that do not meet their minimum criteria to keep them listed. Most platforms delist tokens that have low liquidity, few traders, or that have been flagged as scams or that have been compromised, among other things.
