However, Commonwealth paused rollout on Thursday with no current plans of resuming, according to Guardian Australia

Commonwealth CEO Matt Comyn cited UST and Luna crashes as the main reason for current market volatility, adding that more regulation would be needed before re-activating and advancing crypto trading features.
