Singapore-based crypto lending and trading platform Vauld said on Monday it would suspend withdrawals and trading and seek new investors, the latest sign of stress in the embattled crypto industry.


Vauld said it had appointed legal and financial advisers, was in discussions with potential investors, and would also apply to the Singapore courts for a moratorium that would have any proceedings against it halted to give it time to carry out a restructuring.

The crypto industry has been shaken by a series of collapses in recent months including the failure of so-called stablecoin TerraUSD, large U.S.-based lender Celsius network pausing withdrawals and Singapore-based crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital entering into liquidation.

Meanwhile, crypto lender Voyager Digital said on Friday it has suspended withdrawals, trading and deposits to its platform and later said it it’s pursuing strategic alternatives and that it’s focused on protecting assets and maximizing value for all customers as quickly as possible.

Bitcoin, the largest and most well-known cryptocurrency, is down 58% in the first six months of 2022, its worst first half of year showing ever as digital assets have struggled since US based lender Celsius Network this month said it would suspend withdrawals.
