ShapeShift Delists Privacy Coin Zcash Over Regulatory Concerns
XMR, DASH and ZEC "were delisted at the same time for the same reason – to further derisk the company from a regulatory standpoint."
As of today, zcash, monero and dash won’t be included among Bittrex’s tradable assets.
Lelantus introduces “on-by-default” privacy while also allowing partial redemptions of Firo’s burn-and-redeem model.
Spurred by an information crisis and compounding global unrest, privacy has entered public consciousness.
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 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.
