Wyre imposes up to a 90% withdrawal limit for all users

Crypto payment platform Wyre modified its withdrawal policy to limit users from cashing out up to 90% of their assets, just days after two former employees allegedly hinted at the possibility of a shutdown.

On Jan. 7, Wyre imposed a withdrawal limit on its platform, citing “the best interest of our community.” Following the policy modification, Wyre users can withdraw up to 90% of their crypto funds as the company explores strategic options to circumvent the prolonged bear market.

In addition, the company appointed Yanni Giannaros, Wyre’s chief risk officer and compliance officer, as itsinterim CEO. Wyre users will be subject to changes in daily withdrawal limits as the platform entails new operational strategies.

Reports suggest that Wyre’s issues have also resulted in a breakup of its partnership with crypto wallet MetaMask.

On Jan. 5, MetaMask announced the removal of Wyre from its mobile aggregator, which allows users to buy cryptocurrencies directly from the digital wallet.

“We’re currently working on extension removal and appreciate your patience,” MetaMask said, asking users not to use Wyre on the mobile aggregator.
