Major exchange delists top Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) pairs amid regulatory firestorm
Yesterday, Nov. 23, Binance crypto exchange notified its users about its plans to delist BTC/BUSD and ETH/BUSD cross margin and isolated margin pairs. The exchange pointed out two key dates - Nov. 28, when isolated margin borrowing on these pairs will be suspended, and Dec. 7, when auto-settled user positions will be closed and pending orders on the aforementioned pairs will be canceled. The decision comes after allegations made by the SEC, which previously categorized BUSD as a security. In response, Paxos (the company that helped launch BUSD) and Binance swiftly halted further minting and circulation of the stablecoin. This demonstrates how crypto exchanges are constantly adjusting their operations to conform to new legal requirements.
