The announcement claims CoinLoan is possibly the only company unaffected by the collapse of the Terra ecosystem and crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital, among others. Nevertheless, the company finds itself joining a number of other crypto lenders such as BlockFi and Vauld in freezing or limiting user transactions and withdrawals.
CoinLoan describes the new limits as “provisional,” and says it looks forward to lifting them as market conditions allow.
