MEXC crypto exchange CEO controversy


  • MEXC crypto exchange struggles with withdrawals.
  • CEO John Chen’s social media account deactivation fuels doubts about MEXC’s leadership amid insolvency claims.
  • MEXC denies withdrawal problems but faces skepticism over a CEO social media account contradiction, calling for transparency.

MEXC, a prominent cryptocurrency exchange based in Singapore, has found itself at the center of a storm of controversy and panic within the crypto community. Users have reported difficulties in withdrawing their assets, particularly the Kaspa (KAS) tokens, leading to growing concerns about the exchange’s financial stability. 

Adding to the turmoil, speculations have arisen surrounding the deactivation of MEXC CEO John Chen’s social media account, fueling allegations of insolvency.

Withdrawal woes grip MEXC users

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts took to social media platforms to voice their concerns about difficulties encountered while attempting to withdraw their tokens from MEXC. A significant portion of the complaints focused on the inability to transfer Kaspa (KAS) tokens out of the exchange. 

The frustration among users escalated as these issues persisted without clear explanations or resolutions.

CEO’s social media presence under scrutiny

The situation took an intriguing turn when the crypto community began speculating about John Chen, the CEO of MEXC, deactivating his X account. Numerous users shared screenshots of a deactivated X handle, “@MEXC_CEO,” hinting at an attempt by the exchange’s leadership to distance themselves from the ongoing controversies.

 Prominent figures in the crypto space, including Crypto Tony, reposted these screenshots, adding to the growing concerns.

MEXC’s official account on X swiftly responded to the allegations surrounding the deactivated CEO account. In their statement, they clarified that MEXC never had an official CEO account and labeled the captured account as a fake one, which had been disabled by X. However, this response did not entirely quell the doubts among community members.

The root of the skepticism lies in a 2021 announcement made by the MEXC team, wherein they tagged “@MEXC_CEO” as their CEO’s official X account. 

Members of the crypto community were quick to point out this apparent contradiction, demanding further clarification from MEXC. As of now, the exchange has yet to provide a satisfactory explanation, leaving the issue unresolved.

MEXC denies withdrawal issues and threatens legal action

Amidst the growing concerns and controversies, MEXC has vehemently denied any problems related to withdrawals. The exchange issued a statement on X, asserting that they are operating smoothly and that all systems are normal. 

Furthermore, MEXC warned of potential legal actions against entities spreading defamatory statements about the exchange’s business operations.
