The Korean division of the OKEx cryptocurrency exchange has announced the delisting of five anonymous coins, as they violate FATF standards.

On October 10, the site will stop supporting Monero, ZCash, DASH, Horizen and Super Bitcoin.

Recall that the FATF obliged the bitcoin exchange and other cryptocurrency service providers (VASPs) to follow AML and CFT procedures similar to traditional financial companies.

VASPs must exchange the personal data of participants in transactions and information about the balance of their wallets.

OKEx Korea emphasized that anonymous cryptocurrencies will not allow the exchange to comply with these rules.
