How Will This Affect CoinZoom Customers?
Based on the Joint Statement, all of CoinZoom’s funds held at Signature Bank are fully guaranteed by the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve and FDIC.
Based on the Joint Statement, the funds held in CoinZoom’s accounts at Signature Bank will be available on Monday, March 13th. When these funds become available on Monday, they will be wired to our other banking partners. Any customers wishing to withdraw funds via wires on Monday and going forward will continue to be processed as usual.
What Should Customers do Going Forward?
Currently, customers can deposit to their CoinZoom accounts using Apple Pay, Google Pay, Credit Cards, Debit Cards, ACH, Direct Deposit, CoinZoom Cash and crypto. All of these deposit channels are outside of Signature Bank, and will continue as normal.
Signature Bank was one of the banks we used for wires. We have updated our wiring instructions to the current bank name. The mobile apps will reflect the updated bank name in the next few days.
What is CoinZoom’s Commitment?
We applaud the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve, and FDIC for their swift action to protect depositors of both Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, as well as providing additional support for the banking system.
CoinZoom customers will be able to conduct all business as normal. You can use your CoinZoom Visa card, use all deposit and withdrawal options as normal, buy and sell any of our supported digital assets as normal.
We thank you for being a customer and want you to know that we continue to work on having the most secure and trusted company for your business.
