Wyre, a reputable crypto payments service with a decade-long presence in the industry, has made the difficult decision to cease its operations.
The company attributes this move to the prevailing market conditions, which led to the determination that it is in the best interest of its valued customers and stakeholders.
In an official statement released by Wyre, they clarified that their decision to wind down operations is solely motivated by safeguarding the welfare of their key stakeholders and customers. It is important to note that this decision is not a result of any regulatory agency intervention. Wyre reaffirms its commitment to ensuring the security of customer assets during this transition period.
To facilitate a seamless process, Wyre has set a deadline of July 14th for users to withdraw their assets from the platform. Following this deadline, customers will be guided through a separate, yet to be specified, process to access their remaining funds.
“We understand the significance of this transition for our customers, and we have put measures in place to facilitate asset withdrawals through our dashboard until Friday, July 14th. Beyond this date, we will communicate a separate procedure for recovering assets that are still on our platform. For further updates and detailed instructions, please visit our website and regularly check our blog.”
Earlier this year, reports surfaced regarding Wyre’s potential closure after a failed acquisition attempt by software development firm Bolt Financial, who had originally planned to acquire the platform for a substantial sum of $1.5 billion. Both Wyre and Bolt Financial mutually agreed to terminate the acquisition deal, as officially announced at the time.
