PDAX will be delisting Binance USD (BUSD) on its platform starting October 27, 2023. This is followed by its issuer’s (Binance) decision to gradually cease its support for the US dollar-pegged stablecoin.
Here’s everything you need to know:
Why is PDAX delisting BUSD?
BUSD issuer Binance announced in a press release on August 31, 2023, that their decision was due to Paxos’ announcement in February to halt the minting of BUSD. It can be recalled that Paxos, a New York-based blockchain platform, was ordered by the New York Department of Financial Services to stop the issuance of BUSD after the US Securities and Exchange Commission alleged that Paxos was selling BUSD as an unregistered security.
Coinbase was among the first crypto exchanges to delist BUSD in March 2023, saying that it no longer met their listing standards.
