The Adbit team and Bitrush Corp. would like to apologize for any and all issues that have occurred over the past couple of months, including frequent withdrawal problems and the lack of customer support responses.

We are fully aware of the frustrations felt and are currently doing our best to get everything back in proper working order.
It seem BitRush Corp has taken a good deal of time in consideration of the concerns made by their user base and the effects on their ROI which have lead them to take this action of removing their Business manager along with their grateful apology to Advertisers, Publishers, Affiliates and users of their platform.
