He specified that KoronaPay suffered reputational losses since a number of crypto exchanges, whose clients could have become victims of fraudsters, used the company’s logo on their websites.

What is known about KoronaPay? It is a division of the Zolotaya Korona payment system, the largest money transfer service in Russia, and the CIS countries. Under the KoronaPay brand, the company operates in the European market.
