Crypto exchange OKEx says it will delist 70 trading pairs on March 10, 2021, in an effort to “maintain a robust trading environment. The impacted digital assets were deemed as not adhering to OKEx’s guidelines – as well as taking into consideration community comments and recommendations, according to the company. More digital assets may be delisted in the future if they “no longer meet OKEx’s stringent listing requirements.”
Jay Hao, CEO of OKEx, issued the following statement:
“OKEx strives to offer the most diverse suite of digital assets and trading pairs for our global client base. But, we also have a commitment to ensure optimal user experience. Regular review of the performance and popularity of our trading pairs is necessary to upkeep a healthy ecosystem.”
At the time of this writing, the list of the delisted pairs was not available as the page was generating a 403 error.
OKEx claims over 20 million traders from 200 different countries. Its home page reports 400+ trading pairs. In January, it was reported that OKEx generated more than $23 billion in trading volume in a single 24 hour period.
Update: Delisted trading pairs shared below including EOS and IOTA that made the list.
