BANGKOK -- Thailand's second biggest crypto exchange faces a deadline on Thursday to resume baht withdrawals and regular trading on its platform, a week after it suspended these activities citing market volatility and a lack of liquidity. 

The Thai Securities and Exchange Commission gave Zipmex three days to comply with the order, which was issued on Monday. A lawyer for the company met investors and the government's cybercrime investigators earlier in the day.
