What’s new? Asian cryptocurrency exchange Zipmex will allow customers to partially withdraw BTC and ETH from their trading accounts, Bloomberg writes. The withdrawal will only be available to users of the exchange's own cryptocurrency wallet, Z Wallet. From August 11, customers will be able to withdraw ETH, and from August 16 — BTC, with the limitation on the number of coins. Earlier, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of Thailand ordered the local Zipmex unit to lift the ban on withdrawals of some cryptocurrencies. The platform has already facilitated full withdrawals in Solana (SOL), Ripple (XRP) and Cardano (ADA) since last week.

The situation with Zipmex. On July 20, the exchange suspended withdrawals, citing unstable market conditions and financial difficulties of business partners. The next day the deposit and withdrawal functions were resumed, but trading on the platform is still unavailable.

On July 24, Zipmex received a business rescue offer from anonymous. The company did not specify whether it involved an investment in the platform or a buyout.
