Crypto.com Waves Goodbye to US Institutional Business
Crypto.com, a Singapore-based crypto exchange, has made the decision to discontinue its services for institutional clients in the United States starting from June 21. The company stated that this move is a result of "limited demand" from institutional customers due to the prevailing market conditions.
The recent announcement from Crypto.com regarding discontinuing its services for institutional clients in the United States will not impact retail investors. The company has assured that retail investors will still be able to utilize the platform in the U.S., including accessing Crypto.com's regulated UpDown Options. It is worth noting that this decision coincides with a week that saw prominent crypto exchanges Binance and Coinbase facing lawsuits from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over alleged violations of securities laws.
