Bitflyer has been delaying deposits and withdrawals of virtual currency in the midst of ongoing KYC verifications. The company received business improvement orders from the Japanese financial watchdog in June as a result of insufficient measures against money laundering.

Bitflyer also has stopped taking new customers last month, and this might go on for a while due to a lack of manpower, Nikkei reported.
