OKEx, the second largest exchange by trading volume, is suspending the deposits and withdrawals of IOTA (MIOTA). Luckily, there is no reason to fret about it – the pause was simply caused by IOTA’s upcoming client upgrade.

No need to worry

Some customers might be worried that their deposited tokens will turn out to be lost and non-retrievable due to the suspension. The exchange ensures its customers that all IOTA deposits will be credited once the above-mentioned upgrade is completed. The exact time when transactions will be resumed is not specified.
