Take advantage of London’s biggest financial event. This year we expanded into new verticals in online trading, fintech, digital assets, blockchain and payments.

The filing automatically granted the exchange a 30-day moratorium period or until the application is decided by a Singapore court.

“It is important to note that the moratorium is not the liquidation of any company,” the exchange added.

Another collapsing crypto exchange?
Zipmex is the latest worrisome cryptocurrency platform after Celsius, Voyager Digital and Three Arrows Capital. Another troubled crypto startup, Vauld, has filed for protection from its Singapore creditors.

In suspending withdrawals, Zipmex cited a combination of circumstances, including market volatility and the financial difficulties of its trading partners. Now, the exchange’s troubles appear to be murkier.

Coinbase was previously interested in acquiring Zipmex, but the American exchange ended up investing only in the Southeast Asian counterpart. The investment came as part of the crypto exchange’s Series B+ funding round, which valued it at $400 million.

Among all the markets it operates in, Zipmex’s user base is concentrated in Thailand. Thailand’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is also working with law enforcement to assess customer losses after Zipmex suspended withdrawals.
