Binance Suspends XRP Support in Multi-Asset Mode

Binance announced the suspension of support for XRP and TUSD (TrueUSD) for Multi-Assets Mode, effective May 28. 

The firm’s decision comes in the midst of a legal battle between Ripple and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Binance will stop supporting XRP and TUSD as margin assets in Multi-Assets Mode on May 28. After that, the crypto exchange will automatically convert any XRP and TUSD holdings to USDT.

The firm encouraged users to evaluate their positions to avoid any potential losses.

“After 2024-05-28 06:00 (UTC), any remaining XRP and TUSD balances in USDⓈ-M Futures wallets will be automatically converted to USDT at the below ratios within approximately 24 hours,” Binance said.

Following the announcement, Ripple’s native token, XRP, fell from $0.5112 to $0.5045. However, this did not affect its trading volume, which rose 5.11% to 987.3 million dollars.

Binance affirmed that it would continue to support ADA, USDT, DOT, USDC, SOL, BTC, BNB, BUSD, and ETH in Multi-Assets Mode. The announcement did not provide further arguments for the company’s decision.

Still, it occurred during a legal conflict between XRP and the SEC. The plaintiff and the defendant recently presented omnibus letter motions to seal proceedings. The goal is determining whether Ripple will be forced to pay a hefty fine for its XRP sales.
