BREAKING: BinanceUS Halts Trading for Bitcoin (BTC), Cardano (ADA), Polygon (MATIC), Solana (SOL), Litecoin (LTC), and 4 other Prominent Cryptocurrencies

  • Binance.US announced its decision to discontinue and cease trading for certain USD Advanced Trading pairs. 
  • BinanceUS stated that users can now deposit XRP since they have listed it on their platform.

On Friday, Binance.US, the United States-based branch of the largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance, announced its decision to discontinue and cease trading for certain USD Advanced Trading pairs. This action is part of the exchange’s transition towards becoming a “crypto-only exchange,” where it will exclusively support trading between cryptocurrencies and stablecoin pairs while eliminating trading against the US dollar.

In an official statement released on July 14, Binance.US, a cryptocurrency exchange, confirmed that it will permanently remove and discontinue trading for various cryptocurrencies paired against USD in advanced trading. The affected cryptocurrencies include Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, Litecoin, Polygon MATIC, Cardano, Solana, VeChain, and the USDC stablecoin.

The affected trading pairs in the Advanced Trading section include ADA/USD, BNB/USD, BTC/USD, ETH/USD, LTC/USD, MATIC/USD, SOL/USD, USDC/USD, and VET/USD. Trading for these cryptocurrencies with USD Advanced Trading pairs will conclude on July 13 at 8 p.m. PDT / 11 p.m. EDT. Although the USDC/USD pair will be removed, trading with USD will still be available through the USDT/USD Advanced Trading pair.

Furthermore, users will still have the ability to trade over 150 cryptocurrencies on the Advanced Trading platform using USDT pairs. Additionally, certain cryptocurrencies may support trading with BTC, BUSD, DAI, or TUSD.

XRP Listing and Trading on BinanceUS

Additionally, BinanceUS stated that users can now deposit XRP as the cryptocurrency has been listed on their platform. The announcement revealed that trading for the XRP/USDT advanced trading pair will commence on July 14, 2023, at 6:00 a.m. PDT or 9:00 a.m. EDT.

Following the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) lawsuit against Ripple, accusing them of selling XRP as an unregistered security, Binance US decided to delist XRP from its platform. However, this delisting was specific to Binance US and did not impact the broader Binance crypto exchange, which continued to support XRP trading. Following Ripple’s recent legal triumph in its three-year legal battle against the SEC, XRP is making a comeback on exchanges where it had previously been delisted.

Streamlining USD Withdrawals

Despite encountering several challenges in the U.S., such as the loss of banking partners and revenue streams, BinanceUS still allows users to engage in various activities, including buying, selling, and converting cryptocurrencies with USD. Additionally, users can utilize USD to trade 21 different cryptocurrencies. However, Binance US cautioned that its remaining partners may discontinue USD withdrawal services.

Taking steps to address the issue, on June 23, Binance US collaborated with its banking partners to resolve all delayed USD withdrawal requests. As a result, the crypto exchange now aims to process most USD withdrawal requests within the standard timeframe of 5 business days or less.
