Juno JUNO/USD, a crypto banking firm, has told customers to either store their digital assets themselves or cash them out in light of the fact that the company is transferring their customers’ funds to a different custodian.
What Happened: In a tweet posted on Wednesday, Juno said as a platform it doesn’t custody crypto assets and relies on our crypto partner Wyre for these services.
However, due to uncertainty with its partner, Juno has taken preemptive action in the interest of the customers.
Juno has temporarily disabled all cryptocurrency purchases on the platform and instead automatically converted supported stablecoins – such as USD coin USDC/USD, Tether USDT/USD, mUSDC – to USD, which is safely stored in their FDIC-insured checking account.

Wyre, once valued at a whopping $1.5 billion, has been hit with some tough headwinds in recent months. In September, Bolt, a one-click checkout company, backed away from its acquisition. Then, just before the new year, Axios reported Wyre had told employees it would be liquidating and terminating its offerings come January.
Juno is an online-only banking service that makes it easy to manage your cash and crypto assets such as Bitcoin BTC/USD, Ethereum ETH/USD and others all in one place.
