Cryptocurrency exchange Yacuna has announced its closure on November 15, 2015. Customers of the European exchange received letters of the news and have also been asked to withdraw their funds before the date of closure.

In a letter sent to all its customers, Yacuna announced that the exchange will close in November.

The London-based exchange offered trading in bitcoin, litecoin and dogecoin for European users.

An excerpt from its letter sent out to customer read:

Dear Yacuna customer,

We want to thank you for all your loyalty and trust. Bitcoin is a wonderful technology, and we are proud, that we have developed one of the first European exchanges for virtual currency. But everything comes to an end. Therefore, we will close the exchange at on November 15th, 2015.

Yacuna further stated that withdrawals of all currencies will be processed manually and asked for patience, adding that “this process may take some time until completed.”

Despite the setback, the company may still foray into bitcoin-related projects in the future.

“We´d like to thank you again for being a customer of Yacuna. We hope that you will continue to be an integral part of the Bitcoin community and support us in our future projects,” the email concluded.
