Crypto Exchange Poloniex Removes Margin and Lending Products for US Users

U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange platform Poloniex will remove margin and lending products for its customers in the U.S and delist three digital assets, according to an announcement published October 3.

Poloniex is a cryptocurrency trading platform founded in 2014 and designed as a digital-currency-to-digital-currency exchange. In 2018, Poloniex was acquired by Dublin-based payments technology firm Circle for $400 million. Currently, Poloniex is ranked 38th by the adjusted trading value, according to CoinMarketCap.

According to the statement, the exchange will remove its margine and lending products for U.S.-based customers by the end of this year. Poloniex explains that the move has been taken to ensure the exchange complies with regulatory requirements in every jurisdiction. The announcement did not refer directly to any specific regulations.

Additionally, Poloniex will reportedly delist three cryptocurrencies; Synereo (AMP), Expanse (EXP), and Gnosis (GNO) on October 10, so customers will have to desist any trades and withdraw any balances in these assets.
