Indian Crypto Exchange WazirX Pauses Fiat Withdrawals

WazirX’s official X (formerly Twitter) is currently crowded with disgruntled customers who are demanding access to their funds on the platform. The crypto exchange informed customers that the alternate payment service provider had enabled an initial rollout of 10%. As for the resumption of fiat withdrawals, the exchange stated that its team was working to resolve the issue but refused to provide an ETA. 

The P2P option is still available for customers who wish to sell their crypto assets to other users on the crypto exchange. In a statement to EWN, WazirX said it will try to roll out the INR withdrawal options for all customers within a couple of days. In the meantime, the exchange urged customers to be patient.

WazirX’s native token, WRX, had a visible decline in its price. WRX’s trading volume has skyrocketed more than 565% to $4.2 million over the past 24 hours. At the time of writing, the crypto exchange had a spot trading volume of $782,000. 

WazirX found itself in regulatory trouble earlier this month after India’s Enforcement Directorate issued a show cause notice to the crypto exchange’s operator in India, Zanmai Labs Pvt Ltd. The notice was issued under the Foreign Exchange Management Act, in connection with a $32.7 million money laundering scheme.
