Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange is planning to delist its token, BNB, for trading against the Uganda Shilling (UGX). The exchange unveiled this news on September 9 through an official announcement, noting that the Binance Uganda platform decided to delist and stop trading on all trading pairs for Binance Coin (BNB). Per the publication, the exchange will remove the BNB/UGX trading pair from its platform on September 17.
In the announcement, Binance noted that it would terminate BNB deposits on September 10. On the other hand, withdrawals will still be available on the platform until November 6. The exchange, however, provided little information regarding its reasons for delisting the coin. It only said that the coin did not meet its trading standards. This is because BNB allegedly failed to garner enough trading volume and liquidity, per the exchange’s statement.
