Kucoin Rumors:What Are They All About?

Earlier this week, Kucoin was embroiled in a bunch of rumors suggesting that the exchange may soon halt its withdrawals and deposits. The rumors implied that the exchange was exposed to 3AC, Luna, and Babel and was eventually going to dissolve due to the prevalent bear market sentiment. 

The raging rumors finally compelled the CEO of Kucoin Johnny Lyu to address the crypto Twitter, adding that the exchange is performing well financially and is not going to dissolve anytime soon. 

“Be aware of FUDs! 

Not sure who’s spreading these sheer rumors, and what their intentions are, but #KuCoin does not have any exposure to LUNA, 3AC, Babel, etc.  No “immense suffer” from any “coin collapse”, no plan to halt withdrawal, everything on KuCoin is operating well.” You later tweeted. 

Kucoin Unveil Financial Details, Dismisses Ongoing Rumours  

Lyu further tweeted an array of financial facts about Kucoin to prove that the exchange is financially strong and instructed his followers to not pay attention to the ongoing trail of rumors. 

He later added how the exchange has recently finished a $150 million fundraising in May, followed by the fact that they are one of the few exchanges that are still hiring crypto personnel amid the bear market sentiment. 

Lyu further asserted that they are also one of the few firms that are active in the bear market and are busy launching new features and elements such as OCO order and fiat pair. 

As EWN earlier reported Lyu will also be publishing a report that will outline its financial operations for the first half of 2022.
