Compliance Countdown Begins

On February 2, the SEC’s announcement put Zipmex on notice. The exchange must overhaul its operations and financial health within the timeframe. Success in these areas will enable Zipmex to restart its services, ensuring users can withdraw funds seamlessly.

Zipmex’s journey has been turbulent, especially after the 2023 crypto market slump. The exchange’s trading suspension last November was a bid to align with regulatory standards.
