2. Concerns related to sending and receiving virtual assets
- The processing time for sending or receiving virtual assets depends on the specific VA that customers transact.

- For outgoing transfers, Coins.ph posts the transactions in the network in a timely manner. However, it is important to note that processing of these transfers would depend on the blockchain activity and how soon miners can process posted transfers. .
