  • Several cryptocurrency exchanges have announced leaving the Canadian crypto market citing the Canadian regulations.

Canadian-based cryptocurrency Bitvo Inc (“Bitvo”) has today announced that it is reducing its withdrawal fee by 50% to new and existing customers starting June 1, 2023. The 50% discount will stay in effect through August 31 2023.
