ICE3X, one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchanges in South Africa and across Africa, has ceased operations permanently.

The closure announcement comes a few weeks after some traders noticed discrepancies in their trading which resulted in stop losses getting executed far lower than the set stop loss trigger limit.

In a statement on its website, ICE3X said:

“We regret to inform you that the platform will not return to operation and that we have been advised to initiate liquidation proceedings.

All withdrawals from the platform have been disabled, and we have processed the withdrawals which have already been submitted via the form today, manually.”

This latest announcement follows a recent Binance announcement that saw the crypto exchange close all trading pairs for the South African Rand (ZAR) following low liquidity for the said pairs.
