Centralized crypto exchange denied rumors of illiquidity on May 31, saying, “There are no problems with our operations or withdrawals as rumored.”

After seeing multiple MULTI and Fantom deposits into Gate.io, some Twitter users suspected that the exchange could be affected by Multichain.
Although the team at Gate.io has denied these rumors, saying that the exchange is processing all withdrawals and operating normally, it can still not prevent users from panicking to withdraw money to avoid risk.
