Bittrex announced on Dec. 29 that its exchange will be removing the U.S. markets for the three of the biggest privacy coins by market cap on January 15, 2021.
In the post, Bittrex stated it is giving users up to 30 days to withdraw their coins:
“After the markets are removed, Bittrex generally seeks to provide users up to 30 days to withdraw any delisted tokens, but in certain instances the withdrawal period may be shortened. Users should withdraw any tokens before the posted withdrawal deadline.”
While a reason for the delisting wasn’t announced in the post, Larry Cermak, the Director of Research at The Block, speculated that the delisting is in response to the latest talk of pressure due to the AML regulations recommended by the FATF (Financial Action Task Force).
In response to the announcement being shared by the Bittrex Twitter account on Friday night, the prices of Monero, Zcash, and Dash all dropped around 7-10 percent.
