Bit2me, a Spanish cryptocurrency exchange has decided to absorb customers from 2gether whose accounts have been frozen by 2gether, which is also cryptocurrency exchange. This Spanish crypto exchange has announced that it shall onboard 100,000 investors from 2gether.
2gether has been severely affected by the market downturn and was unable to sustain during the unfavourable industry conditions and imposed a ban on trading. 2gether is also a Spanish cryptocurrency trading exchange which had to shut down the trading service earlier this month.
The reason behind such a move was the inability to fulfil operational costs due to the industry crash. Users were being charged 20 euro maintenance fees. For users of 2gether if they wish to continue trading they would have to transfer their cash and accounts to the company’s platform.
Bit2Me has now formed an agreement to absorb displaced and disrupted crypto investors. The absorption will happen by taking the users without imposing any fees. Now after the onboarding, Bit2Me will reimburse 20 euros to the users.

2gether completely blamed market conditions for such a situation. Due to such a financial crisis, the exchange company scrapped the free account service.
