What assets will be removed from the platform? On August 11, the exchange will delist EasiFi, QuantStamp, Bread, Nexus, Navcoin, Moeda Loyalty Points, and Spartan Protocol. EZ/BTC, EZ/ETH, QSP/BTC, BRD/BTC, BRD/ETH, NXS/BTC, NAV/BTC, MDA/BTC, and SPARTA/BNB trading pairs will also be removed.

How does Binance select tokens to delist? According to a blog post, the exchange periodically reviews each asset to be listed for compliance with “the high level of standard” to protect users.

The Binance team decides whether to delist based on several factors:

  • Commitment of team to project
  • Level and quality of developments
  • Trading volume and liquidity
  • Network security
  • Network / smart contract stability
  • Level of public communication
  • Responsiveness to due diligence requests
  • Evidence of unethical/fraudulent conduct
  • Contribution to a crypto ecosystem

Digital asset rates reacted to the news of delisting with a significant drop. As of August 4, 08:10 UTC, over the past 24 hours the value EZ was down by 35,5%, QSP by 20,3%, BRD lost 37,7%, NXS — 38,7%, NAV was down by 23,1%, MDA — 22,2%, SPARTA price crashed harder than others by 46%.

Earlier it became known that the US arm of cryptocurrency exchange Binance would delist the Amp token (AMP) because the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) equated it with securities. AMP deposits will be suspended on August 16 at 02:00 UTC, and the AMP/USD trading pair will be removed at 04:00 UTC. According to the blog post, Binance.US could return the token if the SEC changes its decision.
