The Cryptocurrency Market Exchange is from Latin America and has served markets in several countries, such as Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Peru. Suddenly subjected to a financial blockade by the Colombian banking institutions. The sudden shutdown of a colombia bank account disrupted the withdrawal process for buda colombia customers.
Alejandro Beltran as CEO of Buda, emphasized that Bancolombia, Davivienda, and also BBVA had terminated all financial services provided for the exchange process via email sent by customers. For this reason, Buda will continue to strive to assure its customers that their funds are safely protected despite any disruptions to crypto exchange operations.

The sudden embargo placed on the Buda crypto exchange in Colombia was similar in March in Chile, several crypto Market Exchanges in Chile and Orionx were subject to an aggressive banking embargo by 7 Chilean financial institutions, including state-owned bank, Banco del Estado de Chile.

Meanwhile, Banco del Estado de Chile has confirmed that it has been adjudicated to the court’s wishes, however, neither Scotia bank nor Itau have indicated that their intention is to reopen exchange accounts.
