Following the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recent action against Ripple Labs, Inc., CEX.IO scraps XRP for US customers.
The removal process is in accordance with the following schedule:
- XRP deposits and trading will be suspended at 00:00 EST time on January 14, 2021
- All outstanding XRP orders will be canceled on January 21, 2021 at 12:00 AM EST time
XPR recordings for US customers remain active at this time, pending further announcements.
For now, XPR trading, as well as deposits and withdrawals are available to CEX.IO clients from non-US countries. However, we will closely monitor the development of the dispute and adjust our actions accordingly.
CEX.IO is committed to our mission to be an important channel for the open financial system, offering a wide variety of crypto assets to our clients. Each asset is strictly assessed against our advertising policy, taking into account factors such as legal framework, compliance, security and more. We consider very carefully any decision to place or delete a particular asset on the CEX.IO platform.
We will be following up on additional information, if any, on our official social networks and by updating this blog post.
