VAEX to Ban Hong Kong Users from Trading Starting May 30 at 10 AM

The virtual asset trading platform VAEX will ban Hong Kong users from trading starting at 10 AM on May 30.

Previously, it was reported that the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) updated its official data showing that VAEX had withdrawn its virtual asset trading platform license application on May 24.

Hong Kong SFC: Virtual Asset Trading Platforms Must Cease Operations by May 31 if No License Application Submitted by February 29

According to official sources, the Hong Kong SFC stated that under transitional arrangements, virtual asset trading platforms operating in Hong Kong must submit a license application to the SFC by February 29, 2024. If they fail to do so, they must cease operations in Hong Kong by May 31, 2024.

Investors should verify the regulatory status of their virtual asset trading platforms and prepare by May 31, 2024. This includes closing accounts with platforms not listed on the “licensed virtual asset trading platforms” or “virtual asset trading platform applicants” lists, or transferring to licensed platforms for trading virtual assets.

Applications on the “virtual asset trading platform applicants” list are still under review, and it is uncertain if they will be approved, posing risks to those trading on these platforms. The SFC strongly urges investors to trade virtual assets only on SFC-licensed platforms, as trading on unlicensed platforms may leave them unprotected.
