When you fund your Coinsquare account using Interac e-Transfer, your funds will be subject to a withholding period of 3 days.
During this withholding period, you will be able to trade your funds on the platform, but the value will need to remain in your Coinsquare account until the withholding period expires. Once the withholding period expires, you will be able to withdraw your funds.
We are a registered MSB in Canada and therefore follow strict KYC & AML policies outlined by FINTRAC. We have implemented this withholding policy in order to be appropriately diligent and to ensure the safety of every user as well as our platform.
This is one of the measures that Coinsquare has in place to address fraud and increase the security of our platform and your funds. Security is our top priority at Coinsquare as we working to build the safest platform to buy and sell digital assets. Our security starts with the safety of our clients' funds.
