Asia crypto exchange Zipmex Pte will allow users to partially withdraw Bitcoin and Ether from their trading accounts starting later this week, providing some relief to those caught by the recent meltdown in the digital asset market.

Zipmex, which halted withdrawals in July due to a liquidity crunch after its exposure to troubled Babel Finance went bad, will let users withdraw part of their Ether from August 11 and Bitcoin from August 16 from Zipmex’s Z Wallet

However, July was a great period for Bitcoin, Ether and others. Bitcoin rose 27% for the month, the most since October, while ether added 70% in its best monthly performance since January 2021. Also during the month, total volumes of the Tether stablecoin for Bitcoin and Ether rose, according to CryptoCompare.
