Listing of Cryptocurrency - Procedure

At BuyUcoin we are on our toes to onboard promising and exciting crypto projects. For this we have devised a listing procedure. It starts when BuyUcoin selects a Coin proposed by a Coin issuer or any BuyUcoin user by submitting listing requests. To submit a listing request, the project has to fill a  BuyUcoin ‘s Coin Listing Request. The Legal Team with Marketing Team conducts internal due diligence, Kyc compliance, market analysis and other applicable processes for evaluation of listing requests. In both cases, Both the Teams reserves the right to approve or reject the listing of coins. If it approves the listing it will inform the users of the platform within a reasonable time.

Evaluation Criteria for listing of coin

  • Credibility of Coin issuer in Crypto industry and relevant trade associations.

  • Assessment of business and team of Coin issuer

  • Innovation involved in Coin.

  • Market capitalisation of Coin

Delisting of Cryptocurrency - Procedure

At BuyUcoin, our team of researchers periodically review each digital asset we list to ensure that it continues to meet the high level of standard we expect. When a coin or token no longer meets this standard or the industry changes, we conduct a more in-depth review and potentially delist it or just some of the pairs of that token. We believe this best protects all of our users' interests. Delisting of coins or currency pairs can be voluntary delisting, if the coin issuer decides on its own to delist the Coin and applies to BuyUcoin for delisting of its coin. It can be compulsory if BuyUcoin does Suo-motu as a penal measure in the interest of investors.

Procedure for delisting of coin

BuyUcoin will be intimate about the Coin delisting. A prior notice to the platform users and Coin issuer is mandatory before desilting a Coin. Since BuyUcoin is built on an aggregation-based model, delisting is not completely under BuyUcoin’s control and henceforth, is dependent on external factors. The notice period can be waived off provided the delisting decision is taken in the interest of investors, traders and the crypto ecosystem. Notice period may not be served if delisting is due to any force-majeures, namely an event which is beyond the control of BuyUcoin.

Consequences of delisting of coin

  • The Coin or currency pair would cease to be listed and therefore, will not be available for trading on the platform of the Exchange.

  • In case of any asset being dissolved i.e. all its pairs are delisted from BuyUcoin, there will be an announcement stating further action.

  • All trade orders will be automatically canceled.

  • Withdrawals will be allowed up to a month, subject to the status of the Blockchain on which the asset has been created.
