Binance Discontinues Support for XRP: What Users Need to Know

Binance, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, has made a significant announcement regarding its support for XRP. The decision to discontinue support for XRP and TUSD (TrueUSD) as margin assets in the Multi-Assets Mode has sent shockwaves through the cryptocurrency community.

Effective May 28, 2024, at 06:00 (UTC), Binance users will no longer be able to trade XRP and TUSD on the platform. The transfer-in limit for these assets has already been set to zero since May 14, 2024. Any remaining balances of XRP and TUSD in USDS-M Futures wallets will be automatically converted to USDT (Tether) within approximately 24 hours after the cutoff date.

The automatic conversion to USDT is aimed at minimizing disruptions for users, but Binance has warned users to exercise caution. Adding new futures positions during the conversion period could result in potential losses, as the conversion may not be immediately reflected in the Transaction History.

Despite Binance’s decision, XRP saw a slight price decline, trading at $0.5071 with a 0.51% decrease. The trading volume for XRP also rose by 9.36% to $1,053,944,613. This development comes amidst ongoing legal challenges faced by Ripple, the company behind XRP.

Ripple’s CFO, Jonathan Bilich, recently supported sealing documents to protect sensitive financial information in the Ripple vs. SEC lawsuit. Legal experts, including famous lawyer James K. Filan, have emphasized the importance of keeping Ripple’s financial figures, contract terms, and internal business strategies confidential to safeguard proprietary information.

The combination of Binance’s decision and the legal developments surrounding XRP highlight the dynamic and ever-changing nature of the cryptocurrency market. As the industry continues to evolve, users and investors must stay informed and adapt to these changes to navigate the complex world of digital assets.
