In an official media release, Vauld chief executive officer Darshan Bathija stated, “The halting process of withdrawal, deposit and trading services is done because of financial issue which is faced due to volatility in the market.”
According to Darshan Bathija, the statement company is facing severe problems, including financial crisis from other partners and, most importantly, a market downtrend.
Reports mentioned that from June 12, 2022, officials have seen that more than $198 million had been withdrawn from the Vauld platform by their users seeing the market downtrend and hearing about Celsius’s decision to halt withdrawals on their platform.
Vauld is funded by many other big companies like Pantera Capita and Coinbase Ventures, with many others on the list. Reports mentioned that the company had raised funds amounting to $27.7 million.
Vauld hired many famous legal and financial advisors like Tann Singapore LLP( legal advisor), Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, and Rajah(financial advisor) for India and Singapore.
For the last six months, the market has been facing a severe downtrend, and this trend is forcing the crypto trading companies and platforms to halt their services because they are under significant losses. Companies like Celsius, Vauld, and many others have suspended their service until the market’s stability. As seeing market volatility, in the upcoming 12 months, the market could make some significant variations, according to Charles Hoskison(CEO Cardano).
