“If you have a balance on Purse.io, please withdraw all funds as soon as possible,” the announcement read. “It's been a privilege serving people all around the world. We're thankful for our customers who used purse.io increasing bitcoin's utility and distribution. We're also thankful to all the developers and companies who continue to support open source projects including Bcoin and HSD. Thank you for helping us make crypto useful.”
In February, South Korea-based cryptocurrency wallet Bitberry also announced that it would be shutting down. Upon the announcement, it requested its users to withdraw their funds from the platform and added that it would not be charging withdrawal fees.
“We have decided to close the business due to the market deterioration and uncertainty of the blockchain industry,” said Jang Sung-hoon, CEO of Root One Soft, the operator of the wallet.
