Metropolitan Commercial Bank requires the Tether account to be closed

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Commercial Bank revealed on Wednesday that it had requested that Tether and its affiliates be closed. Tether had previously opened an account with the bank for less than half a year. A bank spokesperson said that Tether Holdings LTD, iFinex Inc and Digfinex Inc have accounts at Metropolitan Commercial Bank, but these three accounts have very little activity. The spokesperson clarified that it was the bank that requested the closure of the account, not Tether, iFinex or Digfinex.
