The ED raids resulted in Zhao-run
Zanmai Labs said in its latest statement that it has fully cooperated with the ED and WazirX is a platform co-operated by Zanmai Labs Pvt Ltd (Zanmai Labs) and Binance.
"The ED appears to be investigating the transactions of certain users and Zanmai Labs has no affiliation to such users and is unaware about the purpose of their transactions," said the company.
After the ED raids on Zanmai Labs, Binance first disowned WazirX, and then said that it is removing the off-chain fund transfer channel between WazirX and Binance.
Zanmai Labs said that there seems to be a major misunderstanding about off-chain transactions between WazirX and Binance.
"Off-chain transactions between WazirX and Binance can only be done by a user between his/her/its own account on the two platforms. Hence, KYC details are available for all off-chain transfers as well (and have been submitted to the ED when requested)," it argued.
WazirX is the largest crypto exchange in India and its annual trading volume exceeded $43 billion in 2021.
