Binance.US to delist digital asset tokens TRON, Spell
The U.S. arm of cryptocurrency exchange Binance said it will remove digital asset tokens TRON and Spell from its trading platform, sending the prices of both down sharply on Wednesday.
Binance.US said the move was the result of a periodic review and that factors it regularly considers can include trading volume and liquidity, changes in a token’s risk profile or evidence of fraud or unethical conduct, among others.
The TRON token fell nearly 5% against the U.S. dollar after the announcement, which was posted on Twitter and the Binance.US website, while the much smaller Spell token fell more than 5%, based on data from CoinMarketCap.
The two tokens will be de-listed on April 18, Binance.US said. Withdrawals of both will remain open, but trading and deposits will close.
Justin Sun, founder of the TRON token, told Reuters in a text message that the impact would be “relatively small”.
