Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges by trading volume, declared delisting margin trading for AUD (Australian Dollar), EUR (Euro), and GBP (Sterling Pound) pairs. The exchange platform plans to suspend these fiat pairs on 10 August, switch to the automatic settlement before canceling any pending order, and finally delist them by 12 August. That is according to an official statement from the crypto company.
The exchange's move to delist these pairs might be due to regulatory concerns. Keep in mind that Binance received monitoring backlash in Australia, the UK, and Europe.
While concluding the announcement, the exchange warned that margin trading is a high risk, leading to either massive losses or profits. Moreover, it declared that past results never detect future returns. Traders might have their entire margin balance liquidated in cases of thrilling price movements.
Remember, Binance has experienced regulatory backlash from ten countries since last month. The regulators seem concerned about two things about Binance's undertakings: high leverage trading and the absence of headquarters. Binance has the highest leverage on trading pairs, some with 125X.
