Extremely disappointed

A few months ago I opened an account through the River app. I did it the day I found out I could in my state. After a few months, I received an email from River stating my account was closed. I never received any details regarding why my account was closed. Was it my bad credit history??? Was it a criminal offense from 20 years ago??? No details. I’m a hard working Union Laborer, completely legit family man. I have bank accounts and retirement accounts with legit financial institutions. So I’m still puzzled as to why this happened. I thought that River was a legit legal company who is focused on Bitcoin and Bitcoin mining and focused on the Bitcoin ethos. I guess I was wrong, I feel like all the podcasts I’ve heard the CEO on are full of crap with the things they speak about. It seems to me they are not a truly “Bitcoin ethos” company. It would of been great to be able to use one app for Bitcoin investing and mining. Hopefully this isn’t just another company building a new version of traditional banking.

I love their app and website

They’ve done a great job at making DCA’ing into bitcoin very easy. There is no fee after 1 week of a reoccurring order, which is nice. However, you’re limited to 3 reoccurring orders at a time, which is kinda annoying. Their fees for spot buying and selling are relatively low I think it’s like 1.2% or something for orders less than 250,009, which is still probably competitive for an exchange. Their spread is quite high meaning their price is always higher than the actual current spot market, but in the long term if you’re DCA’ing imo it’s better to have the free fee if you’re doing a large amount of orders.

Do not use this company for bitcoin

I’ve had my River account for several years. I received an email a week or so ago, saying that my account was under review and I could not use it. River continued, however, to make withdrawals and purchases of bitcoin out of my bank account even though I was unable to access my own account in anyway. I made numerous phone calls and sent numerous emails asking to please clarify what was going on. This morning I received an email stating that my account had been closed, today is February 28, 2024. It gave no reason specifically for why my account had been closed. Just listed a bunch of possible reasons that the account had been closed. The email also stated that they would be keeping my money until March 21, 2024, and then the money would be returned to my originating bank account. Not only is it a reflection of terrible customer service the way this was handled but also, an extreme lack of transparency. In addition, if you’re closing my account today in my account is unable to be accessed by me beginning today, then you should be sending my money back today.
