Bittrex to Cut Listing of 82 Altcoins from its Exchange

The majority of the delisted altcoins had broken

blockchains, were abandoned by developers,

or were designed as scams.

Bittrex, a major US-based cryptocurrency exchange, has announced plans to

remove a total of 82 altcoins from ‎its listings by March 30. The platform stated

that it has flagged and ‎warned on these coins as users will no longer ‎be able to

withdraw any of the delisted tokens if they were left in accounts at the end of the month.  ‎

The majority of the delisted altcoins had broken blockchains, were abandoned by

developers, or were designed as scams or pump and dump schemes. In addition,

some of the digital currencies slated to be removed from Bittrex had poor liquidity

on its platform. As new coins emerge, old and abandoned coins are removed from

exchanges to cleanup their listings, as well as to protect users from

purchasing dying or scam assets.

Given that most of the coins being delisted on the exchange had ‎broken blockchains,

refunds would be impossible.‎ Bittrex will make no exceptions for further funds remaining

at the time of execution.

For some of the coins and wallets, Bittrex cited the “broken blockchains or wallets that

will not allow withdrawals” as a reason refunds will be unavailable.

Bittrex explained in its statement: “Occasionally, there are circumstances that lead

Bittrex to remove a coin’s wallet or market from the Bittrex Exchange.

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.”
