Reflecting the dynamic nature of the crypto industry, Binance, a global frontrunner in cryptocurrency exchanges, has declared the discontinuation of multiple spot trading pairs. The adjustments are scheduled to be implemented on September 1, 2023, as confirmed by an official statement from the Binance Team, released on August 30, 2023, at 16:15 UTC.
Details of the Removal
The trading pairs to be removed are as follows:
At 03:00 (UTC) on September 1, 2023: ANKR/BNB, CVC/BUSD, EPX/BUSD, HIVE/BUSD, IOTA/BNB
At 04:00 (UTC) on September 1, 2023: KLAY/BUSD, LRC/BNB, MBL/BUSD, MTL/ETH, UMA/BUSD
The announcement also stated, “Users can still trade the above assets on other trading pairs that are available on Binance.”
Impact on Spot Trading Bots
For traders who utilize Binance’s Spot Trading Bots services, it’s crucial to note that these services will also be terminated for the aforementioned trading pairs. The termination will occur at the same times as the delisting of the pairs: 03:00 (UTC) and 04:00 (UTC) on September 1, 2023. Binance “strongly advised” users to update and/or cancel their Spot Trading Bots “prior to the cessation of Spot Trading Bots services to avoid any potential losses.”
Implications and Considerations
While the announcement did not specify the reasons for the removal, such actions are generally taken due to low trading volume or other market factors that make the pairs less viable for the exchange. Traders and investors should be aware that the removal of these pairs could impact liquidity and trading strategies, particularly for those who rely on automated trading systems.
The announcement included a disclaimer stating that “Products and services referred to here may not be available in your region,” highlighting the importance of regional regulations and availability in the cryptocurrency market.
