Can you trust EXMO

Well, trust but verify. There were complaints related to the withdrawals and deposit requests. In 2016 the crypto exchange experienced outage going off-line for three days - from July 28 to August 1. Apparently, EXMO's servers crashed and the exchange had to change them. They told their customers to change their addresses. As a result, some customers anyway sent money to the old addresses and lost them. 


 In December 2017 the crypto exchange was briefly shut due to the DDoS attacks. Moreover, that month the director of EXMO, Pavel Lerner was kidnapped in Kiev. Ukraine, and released for the $1 million ransom in Bitcoin. 


On the other hand, EXMO has all the safety measures including ID, IP, and 2FA verification. 


However, be cautious, as the cryptocurrency exchange is located in an unknown jurisdiction and is not regulated.
