Bitfloor, a New York based bitcoin exchange has announce that trading is currently suspended and that it was closing down indefinitely. The firm stated that it was currently working on returning funds to customers. Posting and explanation on the exchange’s website, founder Roman Shtylman stated:
I am sorry to announce that due to circumstances outside of our control BitFloor must cease all trading operations indefinitely. Unfortunately, our US bank account is scheduled to be closed and we can no longer provide the same level of USD deposits and withdrawals as we have in the past. As such, I have made the decision to halt operations and return all funds.

This marks the second time that bitfloor has closed down as its operations were suspended last September for three weeks after $250,000 in bitcoins were stolen by hackers.
