The cryptocurrencies which are being delisted are relatively low cap digital assets. Poloniex said it was their intent to make the process as painless as possible. The company said that in the rare event that wallet availability is interrupted, they may extend the deadline and contact holders of impacted assets via email.
If certain customers are unable to withdraw delisted assets beyond their control they will secure the delisted funds in cold storage with the potential to online the funds and allow customers to withdraw should the network become operational again.
Poloniex is part of the Circle Internet Financial group that provides not only a crypto exchange but payments and over the counter trading as well.
