Bittrex delists 82 altcoins from platform

Bittrex, a major US-based crypto- and altcoin trading platform, announced it is delisting 82 altcoins from its platform by the end of March.

 

According to the announcement, the reasons for the decision include poor liquidity and “broken blockchains or wallets that will not allow withdrawals.” Others have been abandoned by their developers or have been designed as pump-and-dump schemes and scams. Most of them are quite obscure. All of them, however, no longer adhere to Bittrex’s “strict coin listing criteria.”

 

“Occasionally, there are circumstances that lead Bittrex to remove a coin’s wallet or market from the Bittrex Exchange,” Bittrex said in the statement. “These actions are taken to ensure customers have access to digital tokens that continue to meet our strict coin listing criteria and have a properly functioning blockchain and wallet.”

 

The altcoins to be removed are: 8BIT, ADC, AM, AMS, APEX, ARB, BITS, BITZ, BLC, BOB, BSTY, BTA, CCN, CRBIT, CRYPT, DAR, DGC, DRACO, DTC, FC2, FRK, FSC2, GEMZ, GHC, GP, GRT, HKG, HYPER, HZ, J, KR, LXC, MAX, MEC, METAL, MND, MTR, MZC, NAUT, NET, NEU, NTRN, OC, ORB, PRIME, PXI, ROOT, SCOT, SCRT, SFR, SLG, SLING, SOON, SPRTS, SSD, STEPS, STV, SWING, TES, TIT, TRI, TRK, U, UFO, UNIQ, UNIT, UNO, UTC, VIOR, VIRAL, VP, WARP, XAUR, XBB, XC, XCO, XDQ, XPY, XQN, XSEED, XTC, and YBC.

 

Once the wallets of the coins are removed from the platform, clients will no longer be able to recover and withdraw them, nor refunds will be possible. Hence, the holders are advised to withdraw them to another wallet, if they wish to keep them.

 

Bittrex supports trading in nearly 200 cryptocurrencies. The exchange is based in New York and has applied for a New York BitLicense, but is still going through the process.
