We are in a bit of a tricky situation here and would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused.
As Cryptocurrencies continue to present as a grey area for society, financial institutions have demonstrated a reluctance to work with high volume cryptocurrency providers like Coinhako. This is a recurring trend in the industry, especially against high-volume Cryptocurrency providers, and has severely impacted our services for our users.
Please be assured that we are actively seeking to reinstate our interbank transfer services and will be launching some new and exciting features to make the Coinhako user journey more seamless.
Your continued support for our services comes a long way in helping to legitimize the space. We believe change is coming, and thank you for being a part of it!

Our prices are set based on rates from Cryptocurrency Market Makers.
For a more in-depth explanation, this boils down to very simple trade and investment basics known as 'Spreads'.
A Spread is the difference between the ask and bid price of an asset and is a feature that is always present in all trade markets.
A simple explanation for differences in pricing across currency pairings is that Spreads are affected by various factors, such as:
- Supply - The total number of Coins that are available to be traded
- Demand for the Cryptocurrency
- The total trading activity of the Cryptocurrency
- Currency volatility
- Any other macroeconomic factors that have a bearing on the activity of trade markets
Given that MYR tends to be more volatile relative to SGD, the differences between the ask and bid prices - in highly volatile situations - are likely to be amplified. Hence, you might notice relatively higher cost MYR pairings relative to SGD pairings during periods with highly volatile price fluctuations. The reverse could also happen depending on the factors shared above.
If you wish to avoid such situations, we strongly recommend trading during periods of lower volatility.

Transaction timings - across the network - may vary due to a variety of reasons.
Some known reasons to have caused delays in Bitcoin (BTC) transactions are:
- Delays caused by a lack of Hash Power
- Delays caused by a lack of Scaling
- Delays caused by platform requirements
Different cryptocurrencies might also be faced with a different set of issues leading to transactional delays.
Cryptocurrencies are not without any fault. However, you can try to avoid such scenarios with the following tips:
- Not processing any transactions when faced with such scenarios and/or during times of high network traffic.
- Finding out more about the platform you intend to send your transaction to.
For BTC you can:
- Check the network's mining power before processing any transactions. You can view Bitcoin's Hash rate here.
- Monitor the number of unconfirmed transactions on Bitcoin's network before processing any transactions.
Each Cryptocurrency has its own set of resources to check on such matters such as Etherscan.io - but not limited to - for Ethereum (ETH). We always recommend that you do as much research as possible before purchasing any Cryptocurrency as - much like any other investments - you will be exposed to risk.
We strive to work as quickly as possible to respond to your ticket within 1 business day.
