Indian crypto exchange CoinDCX has halted its crypto deposits and withdrawals for multiple users in response to compliance, risk, and monitoring requirements, the company announced in a blog post this week.
CoinDCX has been bolstering its compliance and risk structure in response to stricter criteria for offering seamless rupee deposits and withdrawals. CoinDCX announced that this was being done in a series of steps, including improving KYC coverage, enhancing the risk framework for crypto deposits and withdrawals, and integrating with compliance and monitoring tools like Coinfirm, Solidus Labs, Signzy, and Digilocker, etc., over the last six months.
“Over the past month, we have been gradually restricting crypto deposits and withdrawals for multiple users,” CoinDCX said in the blog.
CoinDCX’s head of marketing, Ramalingam S said in a Tweet: “While some wallets are under maintenance, there is a larger compliance requirement due to evolving regulatory needs, resulting in increased scrutiny. The new process is being rolled out in phases and will reach all users in due course.”
