KuCoin is a secure cryptocurrency exchange that allows you to buy, sell, and trade Bitcoin, Ethereum, and 1300+ trading pairs. Johnny Lyu and other founders started KuCoin in 2017.

On March 26, 2024 U.S. prosecutors charged KuCoin and two of its founders with violating US anti-money laundering laws.

KuCoin CEO Johnny Lyu responded to the charges in a post on X, stating that "the regulatory matter related to KuCoin has come to my attention. While we're working on it, the platform is unaffected and operating normally as usual. Your assets are safe and sound with us."

According to CoinMarketCap, KuCoin is now one of the top seven exchanges worldwide in terms of traffic, liquidity, trading volumes, and trust in the legitimacy of reported trading volumes.

Is KuCoin too big to fail or not? Who knows.
