According to Binance, trading support for the four altcoins will cease on June 17, 2024, at 03:00 (UTC). Specifically, the exchange will end support for spot trading pairs for OMG Network, NEM, Waves and Wrapped NXM.

The action against the four cryptocurrencies follows internal reviews that target adherence to industry standards and requirements.

When a coin or token no longer meets these standards or the industry landscape changes, we conduct a more in-depth review and potentially delist it. Our priority is to ensure the best services and protections for our users while continuing to adapt to evolving market dynamics,” the exchange wrote in the announcement.

Per the notice, reviews involve factors such as team’s commitment to the project, development activity, trading volume and liquidity and network security.

Binance also regularly reviews projects in terms of their smart contract stability, level of public communication and new regulatory requirements among other factors.
