It was listed as one of the most influential companies of 2022 by Time, boasting around 9 million users at the time. Weekly volume on the exchange peaked around $50 million in May 2022, according to coin.dance data. For about a few months ago the CEO of Paxful, Ray Youssef wrote in a post, that platform is closing down following some “key staff departures” and challenging regulatory conditions for the industry. “While we work through these issues, we have taken the most secure option and ask you to explore self-custody and trade elsewhere. Youssef also added that a lawsuit filed by a Paxful co-founder “drove away all of the senior-level team.”
