Indian Crypto Exchange Coindelta Shutters Services, referring to unfavorable regulatory conditions

Indian cryptocurrency exchange Coindelta is terminating its services in view of the unfavorable working climate for crypto companies in the country. The development was announced in an official blog post on March 30.

Eighteen months after its first launch, Coindelta has informed users that strict restrictions on banking services for crypto-related companies in India have escalated operating costs and that it is therefore not economically feasible to continue operations. The message note & # 39; s:

"It was very difficult for us to operate the Coindelta stock market over the past six months. The threshold on RBI's bank accounts has made us disabled to provide seamless deposit and withdrawal services. No significant progress has been made in the Supreme Court, making it difficult to predict when we will see the regulation. & # 39;

In April 2018, the central bank of India, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), banned all domestic banks from providing services to crypto-related companies. The continuing regulatory uncertainty has led to the fact that even individuals reportedly had to close bank accounts because some institutions apparently extensively extrapolated the cryptobanking ban to individual traders.

In its announcement, Coindelta stated that all crypto-trading markets on its platforms had been suspended on March 30 at 2 p.m. (time zone unknown).

All outstanding orders at that time were reportedly canceled, with the user money returned to their wallets. The exchange said it will continue to offer portfolio services until April 29, 2019, after which it will ask users to request payouts via the support page or email.

In particular, Coindelta charges a fixed fee for all admissions, as set out in the statement. Have multiple users responded to Coindelta on Twitter, arguing that the reimbursement is excessive high and makes the removal of small amounts of crypto-deposits unsustainable.

In an effort to suppress community anger and do business with former customers of his counterpart with the shutter speed, rival Indian crypto exchange WazirX notified users on March 30 that they will reimburse their Coindelta withdrawal fees if they choose to transfer their deposits to their platform.

As previously reported, the status and future of cryptocurrencies in India remains highly controversial. After the controversial ban of the RBI entered into force in July last year, both public and industry-led petitions appealed to the courts because the decision is unconstitutional.

On March 30, the fourth of a series of blockchain supporters meetings was organized in the city of Bangalore in protest against the continuing uncertainty, as the Supreme Court rejected an expected final decision on the RBI ban. window.fbAsyncInit = function() { FB.init({ appId : ‘1922752334671725’, xfbml : true, version : ‘v2.9’ }); FB.AppEvents.logPageView(); }; (function(d, s, id){ var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)(0); if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;} js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = “”; js.async = true; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’)); !function(f,b,e,v,n,t,s) {if(f.fbq)return;n=f.fbq=function(){n.callMethod? n.callMethod.apply(n,arguments):n.queue.push(arguments)}; if(!f._fbq)f._fbq=n;n.push=n;n.loaded=!0;n.version=’2.0′; n.queue=();t=b.createElement(e);t.async=!0; t.src=v;s=b.getElementsByTagName(e)(0); s.parentNode.insertBefore(t,s)}(window,document,’script’, ‘’); fbq(‘init’, ‘1922752334671725’); fbq(‘track’, ‘PageView’);
