Crypto Exchange CoinLoan Enforces 100x Lowered Withdrawal Limit

Another popular crypto trading platform may well be on the verge of demise. The crypto massacre looks set to continue with the body count now including Three Arrows Capital, Vauld, Celsius, and Voyager Digital, to name a few.

Shrinking Is Better Than Sinking

In normal circumstances, CoinLoan has a customer withdrawal limit of $50,000. However, as of today, CoinLoan, the popular Estonian crypto exchange, has been faced with a tsunami of withdrawal requests, leading to the company making the rather quiet decision to lower its withdrawal limit to just $5,000—a clearly warning sign of liquidity issues.

The crypto lending company slammed competitors BlockFi, Celsius and 3AC for not being able to handle the crypto turmoil, which allegedly caused their own investors to panic sell. Ironically enough, the official blog post at the time stated that “CoinLoan is probably the only company unaffected by the controversies of stETH, Luna/UST, Three Arrows Capital, and DeFi protocol issues”.

The contradictory statement is likely an attempt to save face, though CoinLoan themselves admit that it would be “more convenient” to simply halt all withdrawals, as has already been done by a couple of troubled competitors. Nevertheless, the customers remain the “biggest priority” for CoinLoan, so the measure is unlikely to happen, and current tight withdrawal limit is expected to be “provisional” only.

Bear Market Too Hot for Celsius

In the grand scheme of things, CoinLoan is simply the newest addition to the list of casualty from the ongoing crypto beatdown. Founded in 2017, the company is one of the most established crypto lending companies in the European market. Now, CoinLoan falls under the same category as Celsius, the company that faced controversy a couple of weeks ago when it halted all customer withdrawals.

In spite of that, Celsius managed to bounce back from rock bottom, paying out a huge $145 million loan on to MakerDAO on July 4th.

Cracking the Vauld

While CoinLoan claims to be “weathering the storm”, it seems that another crypto exchange, Vauld, was struck by lightning. The company from Singapore caused mass hysteria on social media yesterday, when it announced that all withdrawals were suspended. The abrupt move later led to rumors of insolvency.

Vauld claims that customers had cashed out over $198 million since June 12th, 2022 amid the crypto panic. Vauld plans an eventual restructuring, and has already hired a team of lawyers to deal with the situation.
