  • Wyre announced it will scale back its services earlier this week. However, Wyre's leadership told employees it would liquidate and terminate its offerings in January, according to an Axios report. The potential shutdown follows staffing cuts at the company earlier this year.

    Zero Hash's other custodial clients include MoonPay, Nium, Current, Moneylion and Sardine, according to the blog post.
