Monero Leads Rally in Privacy Coins, Rising to Two-Year Highs
Privacy-focused cryptocurrencies jumped on Monday after several countries called for access to encryption software.
Lelantus introduces “on-by-default” privacy while also allowing partial redemptions of Firo’s burn-and-redeem model.
While Bittrex gave no reason for the removals, exchanges around the world have been moving to delist coins that seek to hide the activity of their users.
As of today, zcash, monero and dash won’t be included among Bittrex’s tradable assets.
As delisting for privacy coins spreads, advocates argue that not only should regulators want them on exchanges but they should tell exchanges what they need to do to be compliant.
XMR, DASH and ZEC "were delisted at the same time for the same reason – to further derisk the company from a regulatory standpoint."
