South African Exchange Sets New Crypto Withdrawal Limits...

• News - by Terence Zimwara

One of South Africa's biggest cryptocurrency exchanges, Luno, has confirmed that it has started restricting withdrawals by clients. The exchange insists the limits are meant to "act as a deterrent for illicit actors moving large amounts of funds within the crypto ecosystem."

Transfers From Luno to Binance Blocked

However, despite this acknowledgement, Luno has so far refused to explain how the exchange sets the so-called "dynamic risk-based limits." According to a report, the limits — which are separate from the send limits that appear on Luno's website — were discovered by one of the exchange's clients. The discovery became apparent to the client when their attempt to transfer crypto assets from a Luno account to a Binance wallet failed.
