New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…
Original story (published on May 10) follows:
Cryptocurrency is the in thing these days with just about everyone hopping onboard hoping to become rich overnight.
While that might seem far-fetched, given how unstable things are in the crypto world, becoming rich overnight might actually be a possibility.
Of course, the instability even means that one might end up losing a huge chunk of money as well. So invest with caution.
Speaking of investing, there are several applications and trading platforms that allow people to sign up and begin investing in cryptocurrencies. One of the most popular of them is Crypto.com.
That said, many Crypto.com users are reporting that they aren’t able to see purchased coins or assets in the app or website even though the fiat money has been deducted from their accounts.

According to user reports, the purchased assets or coins do not show up in the Crypto.com app or website even after several hours or days.
Needless to say, this has left many crypto investors frustrated beyond words since crypto trading requires immediate action to avoid losing big bucks or missing out on making those big bucks.
Luckily, Crypto.com has been responding to users via Twitter by stating that they are aware of the issue and are currently working on a fix for it.
Further, the team has also confirmed that the funds are safe and will be sharing more updates on the matter very soon.
So if you were worried about losing your money, there’s no need to. That said, we’ll continue to track the situation and will post an update once there are any new developments.
