Binance Delisted Five Tokens – including SALT and WINGS

Coingape had recently reported that Binance cryptocurrency exchange set to delist and suspend the trading of five tokens including CLOAK, MOD, SALT, SUB and WINGS due to the failure of performing as per platform’s criteria. However, the announcement appeared on Binance website on Feb 15 and the delisting occurred on Feb 22, 2019, finally. In particular, the potential delisting by Binance is said to be- ‘team’s commitment towards the project, fraudulent conduct and unlike’.

Such token delisting decision of Binance might have struck a ‘fear point’ among the other exchanges – as such, a South Korean cryptocurrency exchange, Upbit have moved few tokens in a special category of assets that are likely be delisting from the exchange. Few of such affected exchange on Upbit are also including those that are recently delisted from Binance – Blocktix (TIX), SaluS (SLS), Salth (SALT) and the Wings (WINGS).
