Dutch Crypto Exchange's 280-M Locked In U.S. Firm

Bitvavo, a Dutch cryptocurrency exchange, said it has 280 million euros ($296.30 million) locked at Digital Currency Group (DCG), a US-based company, Toby Sterling reported for Reuters.

"DCG is currently experiencing liquidity problems ... As a result, DCG has suspended repayments until this liquidity issue has been resolved," the Dutch firm said on its blog.


DCG operates several subsidiaries, including major cryptocurrency lender Genesis Global Capital, which froze withdrawals in November following the collapse of FTX.



Bitvavo said it expects to be reimbursed over time and that it has enough funds to "prefund any locked assets at DCG."


It said its customers are not exposed and can withdraw all their funds at any time. It said it had given the money to DCG to offer Bitvavo customers a product where they could earn interest on their cryptocurrency token deposits.
