Bloombergs report suggests that clients of the Bourse have actually not been able to withdraw funds from late November. This is based upon an evaluation on messages in the primary Telegram chat group.
According to reports, a cryptocurrency exchange in Hong Kong has actually stopped accepting withdrawal demands. Coinsuper, the only cryptocurrency exchange licensed by Chinas government, was established by an ex-executive of UBS Group AG in November 2017.
5 customers submitted complaints with the police after token withdrawals were stopped, according to reports. They could not claim around $55,000 in cryptocurrency and cash.
The administrator of Coinsupers Telegram conversation group stopped reacting last month to questions about unsuccessful withdrawals. He then resurfaced last Wednesday, asking consumers for their e-mail addresses. Some customers declared that no follow-up was done after they submitted their information.
According to Nomics data firm, the exchange managed $17.4 million of volume over the past 24 hours. This is a reduction from the everyday peak of $1.3 B in late 2019.
