Binance Delists 4 Cryptocurrencies, Sending All of Them Crashing

Red Yellow Bitcoin Russia


As of yesterday, October 9th, 2018, Binance, one of the world’s largest and most popular cryptocurrency exchanges, has announced that they will be delisting four tokens from their trading platform until further notice.

The announcement was made early yesterday morning on the exchange’s website and stated that due to the Binance team’s dedication to protecting the safety of their users, they would be de-listing Bytecoin (BCN), ChatCoin (CHAT), Iconomi (ICN), and Triggers (TRIG). The release of the notice has sent most of the coins crashing down pretty hard.

In the press release, the team affirmed their dedication to keeping their clients and users safe and explained that to maintain this level of user safety, the team regularly conducts comprehensive reviews of the digital assets listed on the platform.

They also mentioned that when certain coins or tokens fall below a certain level of quality, they are either reviewed in-depth or de-listed entirely from the exchange. This practice allows them to maintain some quality when it comes to the coins endorsed by the exchange.

Another delisting, another crash

The release of the announcement has undoubtfully sent some of the coins crashing down — something that we see very often with delistings, especially from major crypto exchanges. This is just another proof of how cryptocurrencies’ prices are closely related to their listings on major exchanges.

ChatCoin has declined with 30% since the delisting announcement, trading at $0.016 per coin. Binance market pairs with CHAT accounted for $4.9 million of the $7.54 million trading volume of the coin for the past 24 hours.

Bytecoin has seen a decline by nearly 22% since the announcement, trading at $0.017. Binance market pairs with BCN accounted for $10.85 million of the $18.73 million trading volume of the coin for the past 24 hours.

Triggers has seen a decline by nearly 49% since the announcement, trading at $0.155. Binance market pairs with TRIG accounted for 100% of the $9.82 million trading volume of the coin for the past 24 hours.

Iconomi has seen a decline by nearly 9% since the announcement, trading at $0.36. Binance market pairs with ICN accounted for $1.25 million of the $1.65 million trading volume of the coin for the past 24 hours.

Quality Assurance

While they have not officially released the reasons for de-listing the four tokens, they have indirectly mentioned that the projects have somehow fallen below their ideal standards of quality.

Below, are some of the factors that the Binance team considers when assessing the quality of their listed tokens:

  • A team’s commitment to the project
  • Quality and level of development activity
  • Network/smart contract stability
  • Level of public communication and activity
  • Responsiveness to our periodic due diligence
  • Evidence of unethical/fraudulent conduct
  • Contribution to a healthy and sustainable crypto ecosystem

Delisted Until Further Notice

According to Biance, “Based on the above criteria, we have decided to delist and cease trading on all trading pairs for the following coins and tokens: Bytecoin (BCN), ChatCoin (CHAT), Iconomi (ICN), Triggers (TRIG).”

The coins are set to be de-listed and removed from the platform by October 12, 2018, at 10:00 AM and the team says that they will continue to support the removal of the aforementioned coins until November 12, 2018, at 10:00 AM.

The move has been made to help create a “healthy and sustainable crypto ecosystem.” And, Binance ended by stating that they will continue to protect their users’ safety by performing periodic reviews of all coins and tokens listed on the platform.

In other news, the Binance platform has also re-routed all of their trading fees to charity, as well as announcing the launch of a new, de-centralized platform by the end of 2018, where the Binance Token (BNB) will be used as the operational token to power the platform’s smart contracts.

Nano Price Uptrend Remains Intact as Value Surpasses $2.1

Some interesting momentum is brewing for the Nano altcoin right now. Although it is still too early to speak of a proper market reversal, the current development shows there is some life left in the altcoin department. Despite a solid increase in the BTC and USD ratio, Nano’s price remains above $2 with relative ease. Nano Price Continues its Uptrend It is an interesting weekend for all cryptocurrencies, even though the gains across the board are pretty slim, all things considered. As long as Bitcoin doesn’t show any real bullish or bearish pressure in the near future, causing altcoins to note some small gains or losses in the process. For Nano, things are heading in the right direction right now, although the momentum still remains somewhat shaky first and foremost. Over the past 24 hours, the nano price has risen by roughly 4% in the USD department. That means the altcoin sustains its value of $2 with ease, and has even reached a new level of $2.1. That is a pretty promising trend for altcoin speculators, even though it is not necessarily sufficient to keep things moving in this direction for the foreseeable future. The 3% gain over Bitcoin, on the other hand, is a bit more promising. Unfortunately for Nano, all of the discussions across social media have something to do with price speculation right now. Considering how this is a sign there isn’t anything spectacular happening to Nano right now, one has to wonder how it impacts the overall market momentum. K Sizzle thinks Bitcoin’s price will push to $7,000 and drag altcoins with it. Shortly after, a retrace will kick in, which is rather common. Seems like a plausible route to 7k mark before a retrace #btc #vet #qsp #omg #xvg #nano #ada #XLM #tpay #eca pic.twitter.com/fRSDGtxEUu — K Sizzle (@KSizzle021) October 21, 2018 Some traders are convinced the Nano price will remain under pressure from people looking to push the value below $2 once again. Whether or not that will effectively happen in the near future, is a different matter altogether. For now, the momentum looks positive, but this trend will effectively lead to a small correction sooner or later. NANO stays under pressure, watch key resistance by trader CryptalDash published October 05, 2018 #bitcoin #nano #nanobtc #btc #cryptocurrency #nanocoin https://t.co/SPp354Nhvy pic.twitter.com/Ofo6XkJuwY — BitcoinAgile (@bitcoinagile) October 21, 2018 Last but not least, Torjus Gaaren is looking for further Nano price gains in the near future. Although the current momentum seems to warrant cautious optimism first and foremost, one has to keep in mind no financial market can continue to rise indefinitely. In the case of Nano, this trend remains in place, although its week trading volume can easily trigger a big sell-off in the future. #NANO very good trade with clear target if it breaks out upwards. Trade described in chart. pic.twitter.com/7hcK6woxMz — Torjus Gaaren (@TGaaren) October 20, 2018 With all of these trends in place, it will be interesting to see what the future will hold for Nano. It is still one of the most resilient altcoins on the market, and its push into Venezuela will undoubtedly continue to generate a fair bit of attention. Altcoins are in a good place right now, which might very well hint at a continual uptrend in the future. The post Nano Price Uptrend Remains Intact as Value Surpasses $2.1 appeared first on NullTX.
