KuCoin’s CEO denied the rumors of halting withdrawals.
Cryptocurrency exchange KuCoin today denied “rumors” suggesting that the company might halt withdrawals owing to losses suffered amid recent market turmoil.
Johnny Lyu, the CEO of KuCoin, tweeted that he was not sure who was spreading such rumors or their intentions but that KuCoin “does not have any exposure to LUNA, 3AC, Babel, etc.”
Crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC) filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy on Friday in a New York court.
Lyu added that the company had no plans to halt withdrawals and that KuCoin was operating well.
He also tweeted “some recent facts about KuCoin”:
- The company finished a $150 million fundraising at a $10 billion valuation in May.
- It is one of the few platforms still hiring.
- It remains active amid the market downturn by launching new features.
At the fundraising time, CoinMarketCap said KuCoin was the fifth largest crypto exchange, with 18 million users in 207 countries.
The CEO added: “For FUDers who intentionally spread unverified info, KuCoin reserves the right to take legal actions.”
FUD is a crypto term for “fear, uncertainty and doubt.”
Transparency is a crucial principle of KuCoin. Lyu also said on Twitter that the company would soon publish a first-half report on its operations.
KuCoin is a cryptocurrency exchange that makes it easier to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrencies like BTC, ETH, KCS, SHIB, DOGE, Gari, etc.
