ED Announcements

ED recently announced that they had frozen bank assets of the Indian crypto trading platform, WazirX, last month, which was worth millions. Besides that, they explained that their action was part of their money laundering scam investigation into several fintech companies, and also loan applications were mainly violating the RBI-given guidelines.

ED also stated that besides Wazirx, they had frozen crypto and also bank assets of many other famous crypto exchanges like Vauld, which is backed by Mr.Thiel. According to reports, ED also searched other famous exchanges as part of their investigations, including Coinswitch. There is a big possibility that many other big companies will become a part of the ED investigations.
