Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange platform announced its plans to delist ALPACA, NFP, MDX, QUICK, and XAI from its platform on June 14, halting trading for these pairs. According to the official announcement, the decision to delist these trading pairs is part of Binance’s ongoing efforts to maintain a high standard of trading quality and liquidity across its platform. 

Binance to Provide More Reliable Trading Environment

Market stability is a critical concern for cryptocurrency exchanges, as volatile and illiquid trading pairs can lead to significant price fluctuations and potential losses for traders. By delisting pairs that do not contribute to a stable and efficient market, Binance hopes to mitigate these risks and provide a more reliable trading environment.

In addition to enhancing market stability, the delisting initiative is part of Binance’s broader strategy to comply with regulatory standards and improve its overall governance. Meanwhile, Binance has reassured its users that the delisting process will be transparent. Affected users are given sufficient time to adjust their trading strategies and withdraw their assets from the impacted pairs. 

The announcement has been met with mixed reactions from the crypto community. While some traders appreciate the focus on stability and security, others are concerned about the potential impact on their trading activities.

Delisted Token Experienced Price Decline

Notably, the market reaction to this announcement was swift and severe. The prices of ALPACA, MDX, NFP, QUICK, and XAI all experienced a sharp drop, reflecting investor concern and the anticipated reduction in trading opportunities.

Alpaca Finance (ALPACA) saw a 1.14% price drop in the last 24 hours, trading at $0.1592. Mdex (MDX) is trading at $0.03549 and experienced a 2.71% decrease in the past 24 hours, while Quickswap (QUICK) is now valued at $0.04992, reflecting a 2.45% decline in the last 24 hours. Also, NFPrompt (NFP) is trading at $0.3988, which indicates a 3.86% decrease in the last 24 hours. Xai (XAI) saw a 2.87% decrease in the last 24 hours, trading at $0.6527.

Binance Delist Waves, OMG, Nem, and Wrapped NXM

Recall that at the beginning of the month, Binance also announced its decision to delist Waves, OMG Network (previously called OmiseGO), Nem, and Wrapped NXM from its platform on June 17, halting both spot and margin trading for these pairs.

The decision to delist these particular tokens stems from an evaluation that likely considers factors such as trading volume, liquidity, compliance with regulatory requirements, the project’s overall development progress, and more. Meanwhile, the news had a notable impact on the prices of the affected tokens, causing significant declines.

Similarly, in December 2023, the exchange announced its decision to discontinue support for its native stablecoin, the BUSD (Binance USD) following an earlier directive for the stablecoin issuer Paxos to cease minting the token earlier in 2023. The exchange will completely wind down support for its BUSD spots and margin trading pairs. Afterward, users’ BUSD holdings will be transitioned into an alternative stablecoin named FDUSD.
