Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange globally in terms of trading volume, has opted to remove several tokens from its platform, including OmiseGo (OMG), Waves (WAVES), Wrapped NXM (WNXM), and NEM (XEM). The exchange will cease all spot and margin trading pairs for these tokens on June 17, 2024.

Binance regularly assesses the digital assets it lists, considering factors such as development activity, commitment, trading volume, liquidity, regulatory compliance, and public communication. If a coin or token fails to meet these standards or if the industry landscape changes significantly, Binance conducts a thorough review and may choose to delist it. The exchange's primary goal is to provide top-notch services and safeguards for its users while adapting to the evolving market environment.

Binance has announced that deposits of the affected tokens will not be credited to user accounts after June 18. Moreover, the platform will no longer support withdrawals of these tokens after September 18, 2024.

Simultaneously, Binance India has discontinued its cash payment feature in line with the government's push for stricter regulatory compliance. This move aims to reduce the risks associated with peer-to-peer cash transactions, as highlighted by Purushottam Anand, founder of Crypto Legal, a Bengaluru-based law firm specializing in blockchain and crypto matters. 

Anand emphasized the dangers of such transactions, citing cases where traders faced physical assault and coercion to transfer their virtual assets or hand over cash during in-person meetings. Victims often hesitate to report these incidents due to uncertainty about the legality of cash transactions in the regulatory landscape.

Binance's regular review of tokens and policy adjustments underscores its commitment to regulatory standards. The exchange prioritizes the security and privacy of its users, aiming to avoid any potential violations of security laws.
