On September 25, the Poloniex Exchange will issue a delisting of eight assets: BitcoinDark (BTCD), Bitmark (BTM), Einsteinium (EMC2), GridCoin (GRC), NeosCoin (NEOS), PotCoin (POT), VeriCoin (VRC), Bitcoin Plus (XBC) .

The exact reasons for the decision are not indicated. However, all these assets, except BitcoinDark, do not even enter the first hundred of the CoinMarketCap rating. This indicates the extremely low liquidity of coins and, accordingly, of insignificant popularity in the market, which could serve as the reason for delisting.

Concerning BitcoinDark, it is noted in the the FAQ that the coin actually remained without the support of the creators. Holders of BTCD got the right to exchange coins for Komodo until mid-January 2018. However, at the moment there are still almost 1.3 million BTCD in turnover.

Also, the administration of Poloniex reminded users about the need to close all positions on the relevant coins until September 25.

After the date of delisting, traders will have 30 more days to withdraw coins to third-party wallet.

Due to the instability of the Bytecoin network, the Poloniex exchange temporarily requires 2000 confirmations to carry out this cryptocurrency transactions. It was reported by the CCN reporter, who tried to transfer funds to the exchange in order to convert into BCHABC and BCHSV tokens, which appeared in the listing on the eve of the sensational hardfork in the Bitcoin Cash network.

In the Bytecoin network, a standard number of confirmations is considered to be 10. This already exceeds the performance of most digital assets.

After waiting 10 hours, the reporter contacted to technical support and received confirmation that the exchange, without informing its users, introduced significant restrictions for Bytecoin holders. Taking into account that Bitcoin Cash hardfork will take place on November 15, and the deposit may take up to 3.5 days, now the user may not have time to carry out his original plan.
