The Four Companies

The Issue with Zipmex in Thailand
The approval of four crypto companies happened amid Zipmex’s issue. Zipmex, one of the leading exchanges in Thailand, is facing several problems. A few days ago, the Thai SEC released an investigation on Zipmex for halting withdrawals, claiming they violated trading rules.
The Thai SEC stated, “Zipmex (Thailand) might have violated trading rules in the country when they suspended the withdrawals because the reasons [that] the company gave for the suspension, including market fluctuations, were inadequate.”
On 4 August, Zipmex was back on Twitter to release information about the Global Moratorium Relief. In the tweet, Zipmex also stated that they are committed to resuming all services as soon as possible. They added that they want to rebuild confidence and minimize customers’ concerns.
We are committed to resuming all services on the Zipmex platform ASAP and to rebuild confidence and alleviate customer concerns.
