Announcing the limit change with immediate effect, the company said: “CoinLoan is probably the only company unaffected by the controversies of stETH, Luna/UST, Three Arrows Capital, and DeFi protocol issues.”
Despite its “unaffected” claim, the announcement of temporary changes will have a chilling effect on consumers who have come to learn that in crypto that temporary changes can ultimately last a considerable time.
CoinLoan another addition to the temporary pause list
CoinLoan joins a growing list of crypto companies that have recently made changes to their withdrawal policies, lowering limits or in most cases suspending withdrawals entirely.
While customers might understandably worry about this development, CoinLoan was at pains to assure customers that there was absolutely nothing to be concerned about.
“Please note that this [withdrawal limit] is only a precaution, as the current level of liquidity meets our users’ needs,” said CoinLoan.
The company went on to add: “Please rest assured that your assets are safe. CoinLoan is the oldest CeFi platform on the lending market. Since 2017, we have seen multiple adverse situations, but each of them gave CoinLoan strength and contributed to its growth. We understand how to handle difficulties, and we are also well-equipped to prevent them.”
CoinLoan said that the withdrawal limit was made with customers in mind, as the preferable option to suspending withdrawals entirely.
