The exchange will remove all open pairs between the nine coins and Tether at 10:00 UTC on Monday, with a full delisting to follow at 08:00 UTC on Tuesday.
“We will only remove the trading pairs; the tokens will not be affected. You will not lose any tokens when the trading pairs are delisted. You can still trade the tokens with other trading pairs on KuCoin,” the exchange explained in the press release.
The platform will add several new coins to the Tether market on Tuesday, introducing USDT pairs with IoT Chain (ITC), Ontology (ONT), Distributed Credit Chain (DCC), Aurora (AOA), Lympo (LYM), and One Ledger (OLT).
Separately on Friday, the exchange warned users about fake accounts that try to steal KuCoin users’ sign-in credentials.
“Be extremely cautious when clicking unknown links (e.g. links shared in social networking sites, Telegram groups and search engines) with domain names similar to KuCoin’s official website (e.g. kuc01n.com),” the company explained.
KuCoin had more than $10 million in daily trading volume as at 08:50 UTC on Monday. Based on the 24-hour volume, the top pairs were ETH/BTC ($703,574) followed by BTC/USDT (639,624) and AOA/BTC ($506,105).
