CobinHood, a currency exchange that promised low transaction fees and convenient desktop and mobile trading, is unexpectedly closed. The exchange was registered in the Cayman Islands but based in Taiwan.

Many in the crypto community think that the exchange is trying to pull off a classic exit scam.
